Blue Ridge

Once referred to as “the Switzerland of the South,” Blue Ridge Georgia was founded in 1886 when the Atlanta Rail Line extended to the area. Visitors and residents can still experience first hand what it was like in the old days on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. Blue Ridge is known for its sense of adventure, award winning fly fishing, scenic hiking, kayaking and rafting down the Toccoa River, and for its charming downtown filled with boutiques and fabulous restaurants. Blue Ridge offers exciting year-round activities with fresh apple picking in the fall, beautiful snowy winters, spring hikes, summer hiking, and spas, art galleries, and breweries to enjoy year round. Blue Ridge and the surrounding areas attract people looking for property with exceptional views, water frontage on the Toccoa River or Lake Blue Ridge, and a sense of adventure.
