The Blue Ridge Mountains are a pretty little sliver of the great Appalachian Mountains in the eastern United States. They begin in Georgia and make their way up through South Carolina, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, and end in Pennsylvania. They are beautiful, mystifying, and full of history and opportunities for exploration.
In Georgia, 90 miles north of Atlanta, the Blue Ridge Mountains offer a scenic view of the horizon. You can rent luxury cabins tucked away from the busy life of the city deep in the mountain. More than anything, the best thing to do when you’ve rent a cabin with the Blue Ridge Mountains as scenery is to relax and take your time, but if you feel the need to keep moving you can hike, enjoying the surrounding nature and waterfalls, float down the Toccoa River, fish, explore the rigors of the Appalachian Trail, and explore the history of nearby town life.
In North Carolina you have historic destinations that provide a look into the romantic history of America. The highest peak of the Blue Ridge Mountains is Mount Mitchell, the highest summit in North America east of the Mississippi River, rests in Asheville, a historic mountain town perfect for exploring any time of the year.
