Fun Family Vacation

When it comes to agreeing on summer activities, kids can be picky. Discovering a place your whole family can enjoy together? That’s pure bliss. Here, you can rest, relax, and explore a whole day of family-friendly fun.

Fuel up for the day with a made-toorder juice or smoothie-crafted with organic, fresh, local ingredients at Zen & Juice on Main Street in Ellijay.

Soak in the scenery on the one mile Tumbling Waters Trail, which starts at Carters Lake and offers picturesque views of Tails Creek and several waterfalls.

Grab lunch at The Shack of Ellijay, where a fresh, warm noodle bowl or poke bowl will cure your family’s post-hike hunger.

Head to downtown Ellijay for an afternoon shopping spree certain to deliver something fun, from ice cream and apparel to home decor and antiques.

Savor what’s in season or grab year-round delights like blackberry jam or five-pepper jelly at R&A Orchards, a landmark of the North Georgia mountains since 1947.

Close out a perfect day with campfire s’mores at Gingershack Farms, site of vacation cabins that offer all the fun of creek-side “camping” without the hassle.
