20 Fall Fun Ideas in the North Georgia Mountains – #20

lily-pad-villageIt  is officially early fall and I hope you are already beginning to enjoy the season!  This has been a fun series to write about because I absolutely love all of the amazing activities that are here to enjoy in the North Georgia Mountains.  Like I have mentioned before, I could go on and on with more fun ideas but today concludes this series with my #20 idea of fall fun…Taking the kids to the Lily Pad Village in Blue Ridge.

This fun kid’s spot is located off the Aska area which is beautiful in itself!  There are so many activites that can be enjoyed at this cool place.  You can play outdoor mini golf in a neat mountain setting, mine for beautiful gems, fish, as well as take a guided hike tour.  The best thing about this place besides the setting is the family friendly atmosphere.  They  want each person to have a great time and they do whatever it takes to make that happen.

The putt putt coarse is one of the few offered in this area.  You will enjoy not only playing on the coarse but all the nature that surrounds it!  The Gem mining is in a rustic flume with a covered area for various weather conditions.  The staff is very friendly and helpful to the kids as they mine for these various beautiful gems.  The fishing area is great too!  The Lily pad pond is stocked full of catfish, blue gills and bass mainly.  It is fun to see how excited the children get when they catch something.  Another great activity offered at The Lily Pad Village is a guided hiking tour!  A friendly tour guide will take your family on a two to three hour easy to moderate hike to various beautiful falls in the area.

There are so many things offered at this awesome nature spot!  They have various price packages and you can figure out what is best for your family.  You can do one activity or do them all.  Whatever you do, it will be an experience you and the kids or grandchildren will no doubt remember.  If you don’t take the guided tour, head to the short hike right down the road at Fall Branch Falls to end your day.

I hope you have enjoyed the fall series of fun things to do!  Please let me know if you get the opportunity to enjoy any of them.  Also, if there are other suggestions of fun things you have done in the North Georgia Mountains, I would love to hear about them.
