Nestled along the banks of the Cartecay River, and on the route of the Appalachian Foothills Parkway, East Ellijay in Gilmer County is a small hamlet of only two square miles. A sister city to Gilmer County's county seat of Ellijay, East Ellijay is a commercial hub of the area.
Locally owned shops await you next to recognizable national chains. Dining options galore also await you in this picturesque mountain community.
Visit any season of the year for a new experience but be sure to mark your calendar for the first weekend of May each year as East Ellijay plays host to the Georgia Apple Blossom Festival.
