Blue Ridge Reviews

4 reviews
All Categories
Blue Ridge is one of my favorite places in Georgia. It has the most perfect sights to explore, the cutest shops and parts of town that take you back in time. Blue Ridge is an amazing, peaceful escape from the city life of Atlanta, there's no hustle and bustle at all hours of the night; the saying "it's too light out side at night to see starts" will no longer be a part of your vocabulary! Ellijay/ Blue Ridge is up in the mountains, and a little more country than what I'm use to. You won't be seeing a downtown Blue Ridge, similar to that of Atlanta, in Blue ridge.
Blue Ridge, Georgia is a great place to live and raise a family. Known for it's southern hospitality. It has a small town feel, yet still has many of the amenities you would find in a big city. Blue Ridge has grown quite a bit here recently due to many folks that have came to vacation and visit and fell in love with the home-town friendly atmosphere.
I HAVE LIVED IN THIS TOWN MY WHOLE LIFE AND I COULD NOT IMAGINE A FRIENDLIER OR MORE BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO BE. YOU WALK DOWN THE STREET AND PEOPLE SAY HELLO EVEN IF THEY DON'T KNOW YOU. IT IS A TOWN I WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE LOOKING FOR A SMALL TOWN MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE TO VISIT THE BEAUTIFUL HILLS OF BLUE RIDGE GEORGIA.
