Mountain Towns & Countryside

Fall in love with the mountain towns of Blue Ridge and McCaysville.

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. 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 train 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. Discover some of the area's most unique and fascinating features on our Town & Country Driving Tour, which includes mountain towns and historic rural communities and settlements, each with its own special story.
