Blue Ridge Georgia

Hello everyone!
 
Now onto the second half of our day spent in the North Georgia mountains. 
 
After we left the apple orchard, we headed over to the shops in the old town of Blue Ridge.  It's a very picturesque town with a train that runs through it.  It's a passenger train too!  They take tours of that mountainous area.  We've done that before and it's a lot of fun!  This time, we just walked around looking in the shops and grabbed a bite of lunch. 
 
 
 
 




 
 
The colors of the trees were so much brighter here than at our house!
 
 


We saw several creative scarecrows on display throughout the town too.

 
 
 
 




 
 
Some of the shops and restaurants.......
 
 




 
 
We ate BBQ here.
 


There were lots of home decor, clothing and jewelry stores for the gals and outdoor clothing and fly fishing shops for the guys.  So, it was a win-win experience for both of us!  Ha! 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  We are enjoying more pretty weather here and the kids have a 3 day weekend since school is out today. 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

I have never been there before. I can't believe it. I thought we had been everywhere in the mountains. Looks like it may have been peak there when you went. Probably past peak now. I still have not bought the first pumpkin. I am so behind.
