There is nothing more relaxing than visiting the great outdoors and being one with nature. There are a number of different places that you can visit in Georgia, but one of my favorites is a little town called Ellijay. The reason being that not only is it quite affordable, but there are a number of different activities that you can do there as well.

The Farm is home to the most delectable of tastes and is famous for the meat that it serves. You can also just stroll around and take in the magnificent view, and you can shop for other farm produce such as Milk, cream and cheese.

Engelheim Vineyard

If you are the sort of person that enjoys tasting wine, then this is the place for you. The Engelheim Vineyard is a unique wine tasting experience which you can enjoy with your significant other, or a group of friends. The winery is renowned for its tasting rooms and majestic views, amongst other things.

Now this is by far the best place to visit as there are tons of different options that you can choose from. You can hop on board for a fishing tour and you might even be lucky enough to catch a Rainbow Trout as well. If you are in the mood for a bit of an adventure I suggest rafting, and there are a number of different companies who offer kayaking and canoeing services too. For lodging purposes though I recommend Sliding Rock Cabins as I have had a great experience with them every time I have vacationed in Ellijay.

Gilmer Arts Center

If you are a bit attuned with your creative side, then the Gilmer Arts Center is the place to visit. The building houses art by local artists and can be a nice way to relax after a long and tiring day.

Cornerstone Café

Located on 76 N Main St the café’s specialty is American and Italian fare. Personally, I recommend that you try the Lamb Shank, and the Texas French Toast.

There you go! Those are some of the most affordable places you can go to have a good time while vacationing. Be sure to check them out while you are in Ellijay Georgia, and I am pretty sure that you will have as amazing as an experience as I had visiting there.
