Fall Fun in North Georgia + First-Basers

By 2:07 PM , , , , ,

A couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to visit some of our best friends in north Georgia for the weekend. These friends ya'll...they are our first basers. You know what I mean...the friends who are there for you through the thick and then. The friends that will do anything for you and you will do anything for in return. The ones you can be 100% yourself with and they still love you. The sort of friends that even though they don't have children of their own yet invite you to bring your 15 month old and spend the entire weekend with them and plan fun activities around your child's bedtime/nap time/eating schedules. 

O.k. enough. You get it. I know, I know. We had the best weekend (with the one exception of the Dawgs loss to Alabama...what happened?!?) and there are SO many fun activities to do in the Blueridge, Ellijay, North Georgia area that I thought I would share in case any of you want to plan a fall weekend get away to this area.

First Stop: Mercer's Apple House

If you haven't been here add it to your list. Their blueberry wine and also their cider slushies. Out. of. this world. Oh and their apple fritters and fried pies. Get one. Or 20. You can pick apples if you want or you can just sample them and buy them from the apple house. They also have a winery, a bakery, and a store. Plus there is the opportunity to get a tractor picture like this one.

Second Stop: Lunch in Blueridge

So many options. So delicious. 

Third Stop: Burt's Pumpkin Farm in Dawnsonville, GA

Apparently this place is an icon but neither my husband nor I had ever been. Get ready for picture overload. This place is awesome! TONS of pumpkins and they are really affordable. Also, a really cool hayride for the kids+ lots of good food = fall fun to the finest! 

Last Stop: Amicalola Falls

BEAUTIFUL waterfall and an easy hike plus it is directly across the street from Burt's Pumpkin Farm. 

So if you didn't already have weekends plans and live somewhat close now you do. You're welcome. 

I hope you all have the BEST weekend!
