Offering all the charm and hospitality that one would expect from a small southern town, Ellijay, Georgia prides itself on welcoming its visitors with open arms. It is a quaint city located in the “Apple Capital of Georgia” and nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Whether you’re looking to explore the great outdoors or relax in a rocker on the front porch of Ellijay cabin rentals, you won’t be disappointed.
Things to Do
Get outside and explore the mountainous landscape and rugged trails that surround Ellijay. The city is right on the cusp of the Chattahoochee National Forest where visitors can choose from a plethora of hiking trails ranging in difficulty. Reach Springer Mountain via an 8.5 mile trail and take a photo with the bronze plaque marking the Appalachian Trail. Don’t forget to sign the register at the peak. If you prefer something less strenuous, explore the rolling hills on a guided horseback ride with Adventure Trail Rides, or let the Cartecay River Experience send you down the river on an inner tube. Pick your own apples at B.J. Reece Orchards and try their famous fried apple pie before quenching your thirst at the Engelheim Vineyard. Visit on a harvest day to see the grapes being sorted and crushed or simply go for a wine tasting and live music on the weekends.
Ellijay has a number of events throughout the year that are perfect for vacationing families. Plan around an event and pick from a variety of Ellijay cabin rentals available at that time. When traveling to the area in January, ring in the New Year with potluck at the Chili River Run hosted by the Cartecay River Experience. In May, Ellijay holds the Georgia Apple Blossom Festival, which features the best local arts, crafts and food vendors. There is no charge for admission and the festival is pet-friendly, so even your furry family members can attend. Ellijay is also a wonderful place to stay during The Georgia Apple Festival, which takes place at the Ellijay Lions Club Fairgrounds in October. The festival includes a parade, an antique car show and a variety of homemade treats and hand-crafted art. In late November, Light Up Ellijay appeals to one’s holiday spirit and includes decorating, a tree lighting, a festive parade and many food vendors.
Expect to find many locally owned small businesses and one-of-a-kind goods when shopping in Ellijay. In addition to nearby big name stores, the downtown square features an array of specialty stores and antique shops with something for everyone. The Blue Ridge Olive Oil Company has a variety of oils and vinegars from around the world that visitors can enjoy sampling. Browse the numerous booths at Main Street Antiques for a great find. You won’t leave the store empty-handed. Around the corner from the downtown square is Gilmer Arts where local artists’ work is displayed in the gallery.
When visiting Ellijay, you and your family will be captivated by the beauty of your surroundings, the city’s small shops, and the unique events that give the city its charm.
