That's why there aren't. The North Georgia mountains are pretty and close to Atlanta. The last thing they need is a big city.

I was actually out of town when this thread was created in, as luck would have it, Blue Ridge and the surrounding area.

A friend also has a cabin up in Dillard. Also a great choice - near the NC border.

Another friends brother has a cabin in Ellijay, which is a neighboring town to Blue Ridge. It's lovely.

We love daytripping to Dahlonega and also do the wineries. We definitely bring back our favorite bottles to enjoy.

Lots to choose from in North GA!

Iconographer and I disagree over Helen. The area surrounding Helen is great but the town itself seems like a tourist trap to me. Ugh.

It seems that way to me too. It even looks funny -- its architecture is supposed to look Alpine -- Swiss/Austrian/German but the mountains look nothing like the Alps.

Actually, we don't, Beretta. I just seem to appreciate its camp value more than you do.

Dahlonega is like a mini-Asheville. It is a college town and has a nice vibe.

We are going to Blue Ridge in September and taking the scenic train ride one day. I’m glad to know there are other things to see and do.

If you want a relaxed, uplifting afternoon strolling the streets, Blue Ridge is a great place to be. Interesting shops and restaurants; moreover, it's easy to slip in and out of conversations with your fellow patrons, who often turn out to be interesting, charming and informative people.
