Blue Ridge offers a diverse range of activities. Gorgeous mountains, waterfalls, and hiking are a staple of the area. However, Blue Ridge offers a variety of wonderful restaurants, art galleries, and wineries. If you enjoy craft beer, there are several great local breweries. For the outdoor enthusiast there is whitewater rafting, horseback riding, kayaking, tubing, fishing, boating and ziplines that will keep you as busy as you want to be. Ride the Blue Ridge Railroad or visit one of the only working drive-in theatres in Georgia. There is even a Bigfoot Museum. Of course, if all you want to do is to relax and peacefully enjoy the beauty around you, you can do that too. All in all, Blue Ridge offers something for everyone in the family.
