Take a ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, following the Toccoa River to the town of McCaysville. Sample craft breweries, wineries, surprisingly upscale shops, galleries and restaurants.

You will fall in love with the mountain towns of Blue Ridge and McCaysville. Blue Ridge was once considered an elite health resort because of its pure mineral waters. It was established as a railroad town, with the depot at its heart. Visitors would ride the train to town, eat dinner and take a leisurely walk to the mineral springs after dinner. Today, visitors still ride the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway and take a walk along Main Street, enjoying the antique and specialty shops, galleries, restaurants, small town atmosphere and friendly people. A river runs through the quaint town of McCaysville, twin city with Copperhill, Tennessee. Stand in both states at one time at the Blue Line, which marks the spot where Georgia ends and Tennessee begins.
Georgia's Blue Ridge is only 90 miles north of Atlanta, but a million miles away from it all. The area is filled with wonderful options for a romantic getaway for two, a family vacation, girlfriends getaway, guy's fishing trip, family reunion, business retreat - the list goes on and on. There is a perfect cabin, luxury vacation home, hotel or bed and breakfast waiting for you here. Choices include lodging with stunning mountain views, creekside retreats, riverfront fishing lodges, cabins on the lake, quaint bed and breakfasts, cozy or luxury cabin rentals, resorts, lodges, hotels and campgrounds.
