Spring Break 2012 Ideas, Travel Tips, and Entertainment for All

Calling Spring Breakers! Spring break is a week of no homework, no classes, and no after school activities. Will you be struggling to keep your kids busy and entertained? Well, parents, look no further. We have some great ideas of where to go to get your kids out of the house, have tons-of-fun, and create lots of memories! The spring weather is around 75 degrees, it's a perfect time for people of all ages to enjoy the many outdoor adventures that Georgia has to offer. Time to hit the road and take a trip to the North Georgia Mountains!

Just north of Atlanta, a resort is waiting for you where the river flows, the activities are plentiful, and the mountains are yours to explore. Not only that-- you can find all of this at hotel prices! Yes, a resort at hotel prices! The Villas at Coosawattee offers cabins and villas with options such as fireplaces, hot tubs, and lofts for an accommodation that is perfect for your traveling entourage.

And the resort features some pretty amazing amenities! The kids will have a blast at the Fishtrap Park while you meander over the suspension bridge, taking in all of the sights and sounds of the Coosawattee River. Visit the Recreation center for relaxation and rejuvenation or to tap into your competitive and adventurous side. With activities ranging from the heated indoor pool and fitness center to tennis courts, a fun-tastic arcade, and miniature golf, the center has a little of something for everyone. And reconnecting with nature has never been easier with fishing ponds, walking trails, picnic & cook-out facilities, and six peaceful parks throughout the property.

The surrounding area outside of the resort is also chock-full of things to do too! Here's a sampling: Whether looking for adventure like horse-back riding (Fort Mountain Stables) or golfing (White Path Golf) or exercise such as mountain bike riding (Bear Creek Trail) or hiking (Oak Ridge Nature Trail) or picturesque locations like waterfalls (Julie Anna Falls and Mountain Creek) and rivers (River Loop), Ellijay has PLENTY to do during Spring Break travels. Dining and shopping are also fantastic choices as the North Georgia Mountains offers some delectable cuisine (Charlie's Italian Restaurant), unique boutiques (Bella), and outlet malls (North Georgia Premium Outlets).

The resort is 75 miles north of Atlanta or 70 miles south of Chattanooga off of Highway 515 in Ellijay. Turn onto Old State Route 5 and then take a right towards Historic Downtown Ellijay. Travel for approximately 4 miles and take a left onto GA Hwy 382 / Green’s Country Store. Travel up the hill for .6 miles and take a right into the main entrance of The Coosawattee River Resort. Check in for The Villas is located at The POA office, which is approximately a half mile from the gate on the right.
