Seasonal Activities

No matter the season or the weather, there is always something around the corner to explore or experience in Blue Ridge. When the leaves are budding and the mountains come alive with rebirth, scenic drives around the Aska Adventure Area or the Ocoee Whitewater Center showcase the humbling beauty of the mountains. During summer, the deep blue-green water in Lake Blue Ridge is the perfect place to make some waves, whether it be on a pontoon boat, a paddle board, or a jet ski. Blue Ridge celebrates the vibrant foliage and apple season with a variety of fall festivals which means visiting Mercier Orchards or The Swinging Bridge are a couple of the best places to soak in the last few warm days in a luxury cabin while enjoying some fresh apple cider or another treat from the plethora of vendors in downtown Blue Ridge. When nature is hibernating during the winter months, the mountain ranges still share their humbling prowess, Brasstown Bald being a faithful reminder of this. If you want to save hiking for the other seasons, spend your Blue Ridge getaway at one of the spas in the downtown area or at a wine tasting. No matter what you are looking for, the Blue Ridge mountains have an answer.
