You Can Go On A Magical Autumn Adventure Through Georgia On This Scenic Train Ride

Everyone knows that the best place in the entire state of Georgia to celebrate the best season (autumn) is North Georgia. The mountains set the scene for the perfect backdrop and the number of orchards there are is insane. North Georiga is too large to see and do everything in one season, but a train tour of Georgia is a fun way to see most of it in one day. 

The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway starts their fall foliage train rides on Sept. 20 and they will go through Nov. 11. This is a great way to see this area without having to road trip all around. 

You will actually hop on a vintage train and be on your way through North Georgia. On this 26-mile trip, you will be in awe of the colorful trees and glassy lakes you will pass. 

You will climb aboard the train at the historic depot in Blue Ridge, Georgia. The Fall Foliage rides depart on Friday's and Saturday's at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. 

The seat selections include (starting from cheapest to most expensive) open-air, closed coach and premier coach. The open-air is probably the best option so you can feel the cool breeze as you ride. 

During your four-hour ride, you will go through the Chattahoochee National Forrest and along the Toccoa River. The train will cross over old bridges and be able to take in all the fall views. 

You won't be on the trail the whole time though. The train will stop at the towns of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee for passengers to get off and explore the cute mountain towns for two hours. 

North Georgia has massive pumpkin patches and huge corn mazes, but the best way to experience this next season is on this train scenic ride across the state.
