Mayor's Welcome

Welcome to the City of Blue Ridge website! Blue Ridge is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Georgia. It is near key water features, such as Blue Ridge Lake and the Toccoa River, is surrounded by the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, and near the southern tip of the Appalachian Trail.

The town Blue Ridge offers eclectic shopping and dining in a quaint small town setting. With the historic Blue Ridge Depot at its center, Blue Ridge is a center for arts and galleries, antiques, unique shopping and eateries.

The town of Blue Ridge was once considered an elite health resort because of its pure mineral waters. It was established as a railroad town, with the depot at its heart. Visitors would ride the train to town, eat dinner at the Blue Ridge hotel, and take a leisurely walk to the mineral springs after dinner. Today's visitors still ride the train and take a walk along Main Street, enjoying the antique and specialty shops, galleries, restaurants, small town atmosphere and friendly people of Blue Ridge. The town was founded in 1886 as a result of the arrival of the Marietta and North Georgia Railroad. In the early years, at different times, there were five hotels and several boarding houses in downtown Blue Ridge.

Sincerely,
Donna Whitener
Mayor City of Blue Ridge
