Situated beside the Coosawattee River and the Blue Ridge mountains of North Georgia, the little town of Ellijay is a picturesque holiday destination. With forests, rivers and streams, it's a haven for lovers of nature and outdoor activities. Instead of a restricting hotel, consider renting a log cabin beside the river or by the creek. Not only will it save you money, but it will give you more freedom and independence. You will have the countryside on your doorstep, and you and your family will have space to relax in.
Ellijay is a delightful place to be at different times of the year. Plan your trip for April and you can go on a picturesque apple blossom tour; in October, the annual apple festival takes place. Golf enthusiasts will find several golf courses within a few miles of Ellijay, the nearest of which is at the White Path Golf Club. If you want to experience the thrill of whitewater rafting, head for the Ocoee Whitewater Center, which is half an hour's drive from Ellijay. Even if you're not feeling active, you can sit and take in the wonderful scenery. For a change, you could go to a wine tasting or visit Ellijay's fascinating antique shops. If you really feel like a day in the city, Atlanta is only an hour's drive away.
Be sure to visit Hillcrest Apple Orchard: your children will love the petting zoo and pony rides. There is also a playground, or you can go for a walk through the woods. Explore the Chattahoochee National Forest, where you can go hiking, cycling, horse riding, fishing, canoeing or kayaking. If you are visiting Ellijay in December, don't miss the Christmas Tree Festival in the library.
