The Peach State's mountains to the north are just something you need to see at least once in your lifetime. Whatever season you decide to go visit, you'll be in for a scenic and beautiful treat. You might even want to take a ride on The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway train in Georgia Georgia that'll take you all through the valleys and little mountain towns throughout the area.
From now until September 20, you and your crew can take a trip on a four-hour adventure that'll take you from North Georgia, into Tennessee for a journey of a lifetime.
Your train adventure will follow along the beautiful Toccoa River and through the countryside.
You'll pass through the towns of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee and you'll have a two-hour layover to enjoy what the little towns have to offer.
Prices vary depending on which seats you pick, but an adult ticket hovers between $47 and $82.
Just like an airplane, there are different seat sections. You can choose from the open-air, closed coach, and premier coach seats.
The open-air option is popular because not only are they the most affordable, but you'll feel the nice warm breeze in your hair throughout the trip.
There's also a concession car that sells snacks and drinks if you're needing a little railroad treat. You're also more than welcome to bring a cooler with your favorite beverages and snacks, as long as it fits under your seat.
Alcohol isn't permitted on this ride, so you'll wanna skip packing the White Claws on this adventure.
Not only would this be a fun date idea, but it would be a nice solo trip as well if you need a break from the larger crowds.
