Family Things to Do in Blue Ridge, GA 2022

Trip Itineraries

Now that summer vacation is in full swing, it's time to keep the kids entertained! A family trip to Blue Ridge is just the thing. In addition to many great outdoor activities like hiking and whitewater rafting, the Blue Ridge Mountains have a lot to offer for family friendly outings. We've created a sample itinerary for a quick kid-friendly hack.


The One Size Fits Most Cabin

Above the Timberline fits most - if not all - of the usual familial needs: it's a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath with a maximum occupancy of 8 guests. 4 pillow-top king beds, 5 TVs, a fully equipped kitchen with steel appliances, decorated with luxe furnishings, light fixtures, and accessories. Unique movie seating and a wall of windows in the living room brings the outdoors in with its stunning mountain views and ever-changing skyscapes as you watch the clouds roll over the mountains creating fleeting shadows over the mountains. It’s enough to make you feel that you are a million miles away from the daily grind. 


The Younger Family
