If you haven’t already experienced a Blue Ridge vacation, you should! Our families have been visiting this area for the last several years. Each time we return, it becomes even more special. There is something so incredibly quaint and peaceful about the small town. And since we’ve been going for years, we thought it would be a great time to tell you some of our favorite things to do in Blue Ridge.
This year, we chose to take our trip in the summer, but with the changing of the leaves and the cooler weather, fall is truly a breathtaking time of year to travel to the mountains.
Growing up in South Florida, we didn’t get to experience that amazing change in seasons. And if you know us, we are always talking about “sweater weather” and how badly we want to see the leaves change colors.
But the mountains are beautiful any time of the year!

Yes, there were some tears along the way, but we all ended up making it there in one piece.
