Fall in North Georgia

Georgia's northeastern mountains are part of the Blue Ridge range, a spine of the Appalachians, which runs from Virginia through North Carolina and extends for almost a hundred miles into Georgia. In the fall, thousands of people make this highland region a favorite destination—where hiking, whitewater paddling, breathtaking vistas, and traditional crafts and foods like candied apples are all accessible and provide entertainment for the whole family.
