Colors of the Blue Ridge Railway

Colors of the Blue Ridge Railway

Our Fall escape to witness the beautiful color of the Blue Ridge Mountains begins as we travel to Historic Dahlonega, Georgia. We will start our day with a family-style lunch at the historic Smith House, which has been serving delicious, family-style country cooking for 100 years. As the legend goes, original owner Captain Hall literally struck gold as he broke ground on his home. Today, the mine shaft opening in the basement of the Smith House is the centerpiece of an exhibit that digs deep into the history of Dahlonega at the Smith House. Following lunch, we travel to the Dahlonega Gold Museum. Here, we will view massive gold nuggets, mine maps and equipment, and learn how in 1849, Dahlonega became the site of the country's first gold rush. After our tour, you will have plenty of free time on your own in downtown Dahlonega. After dinner on your own, at any of the restaurants in Dahlonega, we will get a good night's sleep at a local hotel before continuing our trip. 

Following breakfast on day two, we will head to the town of Blue Ridge, Georgia to hop on the scenic Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. Southern Living Magazine recently classified the train ride as one of the top five attractions for experiencing fall color. The train snakes through the Chattahoochee National Forest along the beautiful Toccoa River to the mountain town of McCaysville. Here, we enjoy a wonderful lunch nestled in the mountains and free time along Main Street before we board the coach and head back home!
