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.
