Where to grab your picnic essentials
Now that you’re convinced a picnic should be in your future, let’s chat about the food. It is, after all, one of the most important components of such a venture. Blue Ridge is rich with options, and here are a few ideas we know you’ll love.
Mystic Mountain Pizza is one of the easiest picnic options invented! I’m partial to Mystic’s Supreme Pizza, but you can pick your favorite or design your own. You can also choose from wings, gourmet hot dogs or salads (and there is no sacrificing when you dine on a Mystic salad–they are delicious!)
Ocoee River Café If your picnic takes you to the Copperhill area, then Oconee River Café is ideal. Burgers, wings and slaw dogs will make your mouth water. We love the “basket” lunches that come in multiple sizes and feature fries and slaw as a side (though I always upgrade to the tots!).
Sue’s Burgers Sue’s is the oldest restaurant in Blue Ridge, family-owned since 1976! This is where the locals come for "the best hamburger in town.” One of my favorite things they do is to make desserts with fruits of the season!
