Escape into the Blue Ridge Mountains to admire nature’s colors at their best! Our first stop is Dahlonega, the Appalachian town famous for a certain color: gold! Lunch on your own downtown before discovering “there’s Gold in that there Dahlonega Gold museum!” View massive gold nuggets, mine maps and equipment and learn how in 1849, Dahlonega became the country’s first gold rush town, twenty years before the California gold rush.

Tonight we’ll dine at the historic Smith House, which has been doling out delicious family style country cooking since 1922. As the legend goes, original owner Captain Hall literally struck gold as he broke ground on his home. During a renovation in 2006, an employee punched a hole through the floor directly into a mine shaft! Today the mine shaft opening is the centerpiece of an exhibit that digs deep into the history of Dahlonega at the Smith House. Spend the night in the nearby town of Gainesville, GA. 🅓

Following breakfast we head to the town of Blue Ridge, GA to hop on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. Southern Living Magazine recently classified the train ride as one of the top five attractions for experiencing fall color. The train snakes through the Chattahoochee National Forest along the beautiful Toccoa River to the mountain town of McCaysville. Here, we enjoy a wonderful lunch nestled in the mountains and free time shopping along Main Street before we board the coach and head back home. 🅑
