Historic High Country
A small resort town located in Georgia's "Historic High Country," Blue Ridge sits right on the national scenic trail that follows the Appalachian mountain range for over 3,300 km (2,100 mi). Though the popular trail winds its way through 14 states, Blue Ridge may very well be its crown jewel, offering easy access to a quiet mountain region situated less than 150 km (90 mi) north of hectic Atlanta. Home to just over 1,000 permanent residents, this tiny town attracts a growing number of international adventure-seekers, drawn by the area's seemingly endless opportunities to fish, hike, and kayak. Drop by the compact downtown, home to a century-old railway station and several upscale shops, restaurants, and galleries. Use our United States driving holiday planning app to arrange the details of your trip to Blue Ridge and other destinations.
