Guess Who Is 21 out of…30 Small Towns You Should Visit This Summer

Mountain High – 6This Country Living Article by Ann Shields helps make it easy to decide where to visit this Summer. First on the list is the mountains of Northeast Georgia.  I am personally quite partial to Northeast Georgia since I’m a 3rd generation native and am raising my own family here. I love all the beauty that surrounds us every day. The incredible Appalachian Mountains, vast lakes and adventurous rivers that surround our communities are beautiful beyond expression.  I especially love the small town atomosphere.  Every town in Northeast Georgia has a unique quality whether it’s Blairsville, Blue Ridge, Hiawassee or Ellijay… they all have their own distinctions that give them their own identity.  Blairsville is known for Sorghum and the little town “Where Everyone is likely to Know Your Name.” Blue Ridge is the cultural and artistic haven with amazing downtown cuisine. Hiawassee has an amazing resort, Brasstown Valley with a golf course & horse arena overlooking Lake Chatuge & Ellijay is home of Carters Lake and offers a little bit of everything.  So guess who made Country Livings30 Small Towns You Should Visit This Summer?   Drum Roll Please….. Blue Ridge, Georgia!  ENJOY THE VIDEO BELOW!
