Located just 90 minutes north of Atlanta, Blue Ridge, Georgia is a world away from the traffic, stress and anxiety of the city. But Blue Ridge isn’t a sleepy mountain retreat; the area offers family activities, great shopping and fantastic dining. With 106,000 acres located in the Chattahoochee National Forest, Blue Ridge is definitely the cure for whatever ails you.
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 train and take a walk along Main Street, enjoying the antique and specialty shops, galleries, restaurants, small town atmosphere and friendly people.
