Horseback Riding – Take a walk on the wild side and jump on horseback to explore the stunning wonders of the North Georgia Mountains. North Georgia Equestrian Tours offers trail rides in the Cohutta Wildlife Management Area. They offer rides to adults and children of all ages and have activities for children who may be a little small to ride with someone or alone. Come experience the beauty of the mountain terrain in a whole new way! Another wonderful place to enjoy horseback riding is at the 5 Star Lodge and Stables just above Blue Ridge in Morganton.

Scenic Drive 
– Take a delightful scenic drive through Blue Ridge, Georgia! Put the top down on your convertible, roll the windows down in your car, or rumble the engine of your motorcycle and hold on for a curvy road up some of the most beautiful roads in Georgia. 

Visit Mercier Orchards 
– If you haven’t had a chance to visit Mercier Orchards you are really missing out! During the summer, blueberries are in season as well as some late-blooming strawberries! Check their schedule for “you-pick” dates and times, the perfect family activity with some pretty yummy rewards. After an hour or so of picking, you may find your tummy rumbling for something more than some berries. Stop inside and pull up a chair at their delicious little cafe, complete with paninis, wraps, and their specialty, “Pecan Crushed Chicken Salad”. Be sure to save room for one of those famous North Georgia mouth-watering fried pies, a caramel apple, or maybe some homemade fudge.
