20 North Georgia Mountain Summer Fun Ideas – #8

The Mountain Life Team Blogger June 17, 2013

swan-drive-in-1I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!  It flies by so fast as we all know so we need to make the best of it!  That is one reason for my series of 20 summer fun ideas in the North Georgia Mountains!  So many fun things to do in such a beautiful area!  How many of you have been to a good drive in theater lately?  Well, considering there are only 4 remaining in the state of Georgia, it’s a good chance many of you haven’t.  Blue Ridge’s Swan Drive In is the 8th idea I would like to share for your summer fun!

The kids get excited just thinking about going as they love to run and play in the front with all the other children that are there.  Not only is this establishment a locals’ favorite but a “top 10″  amongst the tourists as well.  Several people that have heard I reside in Blue Ridge, have often said,” oh, isn’t that the place where they have that drive in”?   I understand why because as a child, I remember visiting one in Atlanta and would always have a blast.  It is just a movie, but something totally different about being outside to watch it!

The great thing is you can choose to watch the movie under the stars or in the privacy of your own car.  The theater is equipped with stereo sound and all you have to do is tune your car to 105.5 and you can hear the movie!  The kids can continue to run around and you can see them as well as still hear the movie.  This year they also got an entirely new digital projection system which makes the quality even better!

One thing to prepare for is they do not accept credit or debit cards here so you must be prepared with cash.  Come with enough cash to purchase one of their amazing funnel cakes or deep fried oreos!  Yes, the concession stand is something to put on the list to visit while at the  drive in.  They also have nachos, hot dogs and other items as well.

The Swan drive In is celebrating its’ 57th year in operation!  For years people have driven from long distances to visit this fun place.  On the weekends you are able to view a double feature.  On Sunday there is only one movie playing  Most the movies begin at 8:15.

I highly recommend this as a family or date must!  More summer memories to be made in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains!  If you missed my #7 idea, check it out here.
