Discover North Georgia
North Georgia is a great place for a family vacation. If you have kids plan a trip to the scenic mountainside of Blue Ridge. Nearby, the small town of Ellijay has a lot to offer tourists that like water sports. Some parts of the Ellijay River are full of fish waiting to be caught. Taking the boat out to the river at night and fishing in the dark is a lot of fun.
Kids will get a chance to see the other side of life. We live in a jungle of concrete and living for a few days in a log cabin surrounded by lush scenery will be quite a change. There are all types of attractions in the North Georgia Mountains that will keep you busy for days. There is so much to do and so much to see you will have to come back time over again.
Mother Nature has many healing elements. The crisp and fresh air will do the lungs well and the greenery will be good for the mind. You can take the hiking trails to the lovely waterfalls or explore the mountain woods on horseback or play golf at the local golf courses. These types of activities rejuvenate the sense and you are sure to go back to work all recharged.
There are fruit picking farms in the area that you may want to put on your must-see list. The apple and peach picking season is a good time to visit Blue Ridge. All in the family will enjoy the unique experience. Most farms have onsite shops and restaurants where you can enjoy fresh homemade goodies and lunch. Local wineries are another point of interest for the visitors. They like to taste a variety of wines while enjoying lush vistas.
Many Georgia cabins for rent will let you enjoy more of nature. The lucky guests get to see the red foxes, gray foxes, whitetail deer trotting nearby. Song birds that make the forest wood their home can also be heard chirping in the morning and at sundown. It is refreshing to get up in the morning and have coffee on the porch. After having breakfast, plan to go for a hike to discover more of the area. If you have a dog, do bring it along so it can join you on the hike. It will protect you from strangers and will enjoy the vacation with you.
The fly-fishing scene is very good in the area. The many streams, lakes, and rivers of the area are kept well stocked with fish. You also do not need a license to fish while you are there. Serious anglers like to rent boats and go out fishing for hours. The catch can be prepared at the kitchen of the cabin rental for dinner. Most Georgia cabins for rent have fully equipped kitchens. All you bring is your groceries. It can be expensive eating out throughout your trip. Cooking at the cabin rental allows you to save money for other things. Many attractions are free and if you are on a budget you can still have fun. In the downtown area, you can spend time exploring the antique shops and art stores. You can still find traces of the Appalachian culture there.
