McCaysville is a charming mountain town located right on the Georgia, Tennessee State line adjacent to Copperhill, Tennessee, its twin city. The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway brings 65,000 passengers a year to the town of McCaysville where they shop, have lunch and explore the town. The GA/Tenn line aka "The Blue Line" is actually painted through the center of town! You can have your picture taken with one foot in each state. The Toccoa River flows through the center of town passing under two bridges, and changes names to the Ocoee River as it crosses the state line.

McCaysville is home to Rolling Thunder River Company which offers whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River – a short 10 minute bus ride away. Rolling Thunder and Toccoa River Adventures offer tubing and kayaking on the Toccoa River.
