The holidays can be the most hectic time of the year. Top that off with planning a wedding and you have a recipe for stress. Fall is the perfect time to take a break and escape from all the pressure of everyday life. Blueridge, Georgia is my favorite place to go for a quick tranquill fall weekend. The shopping is wonderfull. There are galleries with spectacular handcrafted art, homemade fudge and candies, and unique items from the local community. I always get two bags of stoneground grits, one white and one yellow. Just outside of downtown, don't miss Mercier Orchard for the Apple Cinnamon Bread and the Cinnamon Apple Cider Donuts. About an hour from Blueridge in Tennessee is the Cherokee National Forest and the Ocoee Whitewater Center. A must see when the leaves are changing. Don't put it off any longer plan a weekend to relax and rejuvinate. Happy Traveling!!!
