The Blue Line
No trip to McCaysville is complete without a photo at the blue line painted through town. Far from a straight line, it winds from the IGA grocery store, across the street, and towards the river. The wooden sign marking the state line is a favorite spot for photos.
The Toccoa River
A river runs through it! The Toccoa River, known as the Ocoee River in Tennessee, serves as a border in some places between McCaysville and Copperhill. A ferry originally operated between the two towns but the Old Steel Bridge was built in 1911 to make it even easier. It is still open to cars and pedestrians, along with the new bridge next to the visitor’s center.
If you’re looking for a bit more adventure, you can see the river by whitewater rafting or tubing. Outfitters like Toccoa River Tubing Company and Rolling Thunder River Company can arrange your afternoon on the water. They operate on weekends throughout the year except for Sunday, when they are open every day, depending on weather conditions and water flow.
