Blue Ridge Scenic Railway Discount for 2011

Article Title Here

A favority activity for tourists is the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. The area is known as the “antique capital” of Georgia with friendly folks and an old time atmosphere and the train takes you between two popular shopping districts.

The trip is 26 miles round trip and winds along the beautiful Toccoa River for one hour in each direction in vintage climate controlled or open air rail cars. The relaxing ride starts at the historic depot, built in 1905 in downtown Blue Ridge, then stops for a layover in the quaint sister towns of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee.

Copperhill/McCaysville is one town with two names because it is split by the GA/TN State Line, where visitors have a two hour layover ( NO LAYOVER on Sunday). While in McCaysville you have plenty of time to eat lunch, shop for unique crafts and antiques, snack on ice cream, visit the model railroad layout, or walk across the old bridge in town to view the river. Then, reboard the train for the one hour return trip.
