Blue Ridge

4.4

Historic High Country

A small resort town located in Georgia's "Historic High Country," Blue Ridge sits right on the national scenic trail that follows the Appalachian mountain range for over 3,300 km (2,100 mi). Though the popular trail winds its way through 14 states, Blue Ridge may very well be its crown jewel, offering easy access to a quiet mountain region situated less than 150 km (90 mi) north of hectic Atlanta. Home to just over 1,000 permanent residents, this tiny town attracts a growing number of international adventure-seekers, drawn by the area's seemingly endless opportunities to fish, hike, and kayak. Drop by the compact downtown, home to a century-old railway station and several upscale shops, restaurants, and galleries. Use our United States driving holiday planning app to arrange the details of your trip to Blue Ridge and other destinations.

Where to stay in Blue Ridge

Although Blue Ridge offers a good selection of budget-friendly bed and breakfasts and luxury resorts, the easiest way to experience this scenic part of Georgia may be to stay at a mountain cabin. The area surrounding Blue Ridge boasts many privately owned vacation cabins. Many offer spacious rooms and their own fireplace and hot tub, plus unbeatable mountain views and lots of privacy. For something a little more rugged, consider staying at a campground offering both tent and trailer sites.
