Add to plan Remove from plan



11am - 3pm

Welcome! A great family adventure on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway starts at the historic depot, built in 1905, in downtown Blue Ridge, Georgia. The town of Blue Ridge is nestled in the lush Chattahoochee National Forest and is known for its pleasant and unique shopping with friendly folks and an old-time atmosphere.  Their regularly scheduled trips are 26 miles round trip (4 hours) winding along the beautiful Toccoa River in your choice of vintage, climate controlled rail cars or open-air cars arriving in the quaint sister towns of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill Tennessee.Passengers have a 2 hour layover in McCaysville/Copperhill: plenty of time to eat lunch, shop for unique crafts and antiques, snack on ice cream, stand with one foot in each state or walk across the old steel bridge in town to view the river.
