Voyaging through the mountains in search of a red rome beauty might sound like a hero's legendary quest, but in Ellijay, Georgia, anyone can do it?as long as they wait until September. That's when B.J. Reece Apple House opens its orchard for public picking. There, rows of trees hold edible jewels ready to be plucked, from the fabled red rome beauty to the golden delicious and the gala, which appears on the branch in full formal wear.
As visitors fill their baskets in the shadow of the North Georgia Mountains, aromas from the nearby country bakery drift on the wind. Chefs take inspiration from the season and setting to create apple-cider doughnuts and butter-crusted pies to the delight of parents and children alike. But kids take center stage at the petting farm. There, they can meet animal friends and lead wonderfully accurate renditions of "Old McDonald" before hopping on a wagon and riding through the hills. And during the harvest season, B.J. Reece Orchards offers more farm-fun activities?families can pick a favorite in the pig race, meander through the cornfield scavenger hunt, milk a cow, and take a bumpy ride on the cow train, and kids can play on the giant jumping pillow.
Cherokee Valley Ranch lays out an adrenaline-filled buffet of outdoor adventures propelled by gravity. Guests soar above the ranch on the gossamer wings of harness and cable across one of two legs of the zipline course. Cherokee Valley Ranch also sends riders careening down its tobogganing and tubing course. Gravity tugs thrill seekers down two frost-free chutes for snowless year-round sledding to make up for winters of sledless snowing. Other outdoor adventures include guided horseback rides, hayrides to a wooded campsite, and a cowboy-style lunch or dinner cooked over an open campfire. Children up to 17 years old can learn basic horseback-riding skills during Summer Horse Camp, including proper riding technique, grooming, and hoof-based sign language.

Town and Country Veterinary Clinic understands that pet owners are passionate about the health and wellbeing of their furry, feathery, or scaly family members, so they provide compassionate care and employ the latest technologies. Originally founded by Dr. Michael Good—who was eventually joined by his son, Dr. Phil Good, as well as a roster of fellow veterinarians—the practice has grown over the last several decades, and it now boasts locations throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area. The team members help preserve animals' health by performing everything from routine checkups to necessary surgeries, such as applying a leg cast to a Labrador or offering wrinkle cream to a Shar-Pei. They utilize x-rays, ultrasounds, and other cutting edge diagnostic technologies as they attentively treat each pet as if it were one of their own. Beyond clinical appointments, the practice offers grooming and boarding services, placing animals under the watchful supervision of passionate caregivers while owners are away.
