blue-ridge-train-2I’ve suggested this fun idea in the summer or anytime of year but you surely don’t want to miss it in the Fall season.  Come to Blue Ridge and take a fall foliage train ride on the Scenic Railway and view all of the amazing different leaves!

Come enjoy the relaxing 26 mile round trip ride from the historical depot in Blue Ridge that was built in 1905.  You will be on the train for approximately 2 hours until you reach your destination in the quaint town of McCaysville, Georgia. Here, you can shop at many local shops including Threads (an awesome clothing store) as well as enjoy many fabulous restaurants like Serenity Garden Cafe!  The town is adorable and you will enjoy your two hour layover before you head back to Blue Ridge.

The fall foliage trips get filled up very quickly so if you think you are interested, pick out your most convenient fall weekend and get your tickets today!  .Another fun fall time on the train for the kids especially is on October 27th for the Pumpkin Express Train Ride.  Travel to the Great Pumkin Patch where you will get off the train to meet Farmer Brown. While at the Patch choose your very own special pumpkin.  Let me know if you get to go anytime in October and tell me your thoughts on the trip!  Enjoy!
