The log cabin rental life will give you a good chance to slow down

The Blue Ridge Mountains are part of the Appalachian chain and are considered rural America. That means a lot of things are going to be different than what you may be used to at home, especially if you are from a bigger city. So relax and enjoy the differences between life in the city or life by the ocean and life in the mountains.

The first thing is to realize that life will slow down in many ways, which is part of the relaxing charm of the Blue Ridge and North Georgia Mountains. You’re on vacation, so think of this as a great way to relax. Internet speed is what we listen to the most. Rural America doesn’t have the convenience of fast internet, so be prepared to experience slower internet speeds and streaming and gaming are likely to be slow or even impossible, but that’s okay because you’re in the mountains to enjoy the great outdoors. There are so many things to do in nature such as hiking, visiting waterfalls, fishing for trout and bass, boating, riding a zip line, hunting, bird watching, fly fishing, tubing, swimming and more. So forget about the internet and hit the streets!

Hiking, waterfalls, fishing, tubing, zip lines, horseback riding, lakes, fly fishing, shopping, restaurants, farmers markets are just a few of the offline activities in Blue Ridge, Georgia. It is a good idea to visit the website of the Chamber of Commerce in the area you are visiting. This website will offer maps, guides, and lots of information on local businesses and things to do in the area.

Be safe when out in the wild, be sure to apply bug spray, stay on hiking trails, make sure all pets are leashed, bring extra water, food, and a whistle in case you get lost. Use a trail guide from the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center or the “Guest Information Book” in the cabin. You cannot trust your GPS because reception is spotty or non-existent in many areas. The whistle can be used to let people know where it is and is much better than yelling.

Also, remember that you are in nature where all kinds of animals and insects reside. Keep in mind that there really are bears, foxes, coyotes, snakes, spiders, predatory birds, and other wild animals that you should be aware of. There is nothing to fear and many wonderful creatures like deer, rabbits, squirrels, possums and more to see on your outdoor adventures.
