"Weekend at Gilmer County, Georgia's Apple Capital"

This past weekend we headed off to Ellijay, GA. The city holds an annual Apple Festival and Gilmer County is known as the 'Apple Capital of Georgia'. The Apple Festival is held on Saturday, October 09, 2010- 9:00am - 6:00pm, Sunday, October 10, 2010- 9:00am - 5:00pm, Saturday, October 16, 2010- 9:00am - 6:00pm, Sunday, October 17, 2010- 9:00am - 5:00pm at Ellijay Lions Club Fairgrounds. I have to say that if you are planning a visit you must take Hwy 52 (also known as the "Apple Alley") and visit the local orchards and farm stands to buy fresh crisp Georgia apples.


I HIGHLY recommend to buy a gallon of apple cider, apple donuts and those delicious apple pies you see in every orchard. They are simple AMAZING. It's truly a magnificent road trip. There is also many antique shops around Ellijay that are worth the visit. I stopped at Mountainside Antiques on our way back and found a great antique to take home.
