Here’s the Ultimate Bucket List to Spend the Best Christmas in North Georgia
Enjoy Winter Activities
Even though you’re in the mountains, we can never guarantee there will be enough snow to actually go tubing or sledding. Instead, we highly recommend you go ice-skating! This fun winter activity can please the entire family and will put you all in the Christmas spirit. Head over to the Blue Ridge Inola Festival for one of the best ice rinks in the area and practice your skills to the sound of your favorite Christmas tunes.
Visit a Christmas Market
Blue Ridge is one of those small towns that do Christmas wonderfully well! Get ready for a winter wonderland extravaganza, starting with the Blue Ridge Express train ride! You can also listen to Christmas stories, meet Santa, attend the Light Up Blue Ridge Parade, and, of course, marvel at the 27-foot Christmas tree!
Taste the Most Delicious Hot Chocolate
What would be Christmas in North Georgia without delicious cups of hot cocoa to keep you warm? You can find the best hot chocolate in Blue Ridge at Three Sisters Fudge! Grab a cup and even a little treat on the side (we highly recommend their roasted cinnamon glazed almonds!) and enjoy a delicious afternoon break.
Enjoy a Delicious Christmas Meal
After such a fun and delightful day, you’ll most likely be hungry! Luckily for you, the North Georgia mountains have plenty of wonderful restaurants where you can enjoy a delicious dinner feast. Here are some of our favorites:
Harvest on Main
Harvest on Main is a fabulous option if you’re looking for a comforting yet exquisite meal. All their dishes are made with locally grown and sourced ingredients and the use of seasonal produce makes their menu as authentic as can be.
Pat's Kountry Kitchen
Pat's Kountry Kitchen offers delicious country cooking right in the center of McCaysville, Georgia, only a few minutes away from Blue Ridge. The Kountry Kitchen also offers a selection of gifts and jarred good for sale if you want to take some of the goodness home with you!
Chester Brunnenmeyer’s offers a rustic American bar and grill feel. This restaurant is located in historic downtown Blue Ridge and, on Christmas Eve, even serves a delicious meal that will have your taste buds going crazy!
