Did you know that in addition to being the apple capital, Ellijay is the mountain biking capital of Georgia? Yes, its true and well supported with trails, unique lodging (Mulberry Gap) and outfitters. Cartecay Bikes has moved into the downtown Depot across from River Street Village, the future home of the outdoor festival and a hub for all things outdoors: tubing, kayaking, biking, boutique lodging, music in the pole barn, lofts, makers spaces and plenty of greenspace for people watching, refreshments and dining. For now, breeze through downtown and lunch on the square, check out the rooftop bars, coffee shop and parks that bookend town (Harrison Park and River Park) that host concerts, yoga, sports and festivals. Plan to catch a show at the Playhouse that often offers gourmet dinners onsite before the show!
