Nestled in the foothills of the legendary Appalachian Mountains, and on the route of the Appalachian Foothills Parkway, Ellijay in Gilmer County is a paradise of forests, rivers and streams, historic ambience and Southern charm.
While away the days on a front-porch rocking chair as you gaze upon hillsides blanketed with wildflowers, or stroll the quaint streets lined with homes that are gracious grande dames of a bygone era.
Shops galore, fine dining, a seemingly endless array of recreational activities and a world-renowned Georgia Apple Festival - all within a physical world that will capture your heart.
