Blue Ridge has grown by leaps and bounds the last 20 years. Home used to be a few restaurants and little to no shopping. It was at least an hour drive or more for shopping, buying the kid’s school clothes, looking for home decor, or really anything. Then, out of the blue, came the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. Guests began to come up and ride the train. They fell in love with our little small town. Before you knew it, people were coming and renting cabins, relocating, opening business, and so much more!
Today, our small town charm and laid back attitude are still evident when visiting us, but you will see that Blue Ridge has became a destination. It’s perfect for the whole family. There is hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, zip line riding, horseback riding, mini golf, and so much more. Our downtown is filled with restaurants, the train, shopping, and friendly faces. From local breweries to home grown produce, there is something for everyone!
Blue Ridge was ranked by Southern Living Magazine as one of the 2020 South’s Best Mountain Towns, and 2019 Top Small Mountain Towns for Retirement. Come stay with us, and see what all the fuss is about. You will not be disappointed.
