Hippity hoppity, Easter is on its way, and what a better time and place than the North Georgia Mountains to spend your Easter or spring break! If you like mountain views, rambling rivers, and outdoor activities, check out our suggestions for the ultimate mountain spring adventure. While these ideas are inexpensive, the trip is still one that’s packed full of fun, excitement, and wonderful memories to be made.
First, let’s start with the Easter holiday. The Coosawattee River Resort is a hosting an Easter Egg Hunt on March 30th at 10am in Fishtrap Park. Bring all of your little hoppers and enjoy a day surrounded by the joys of a good ole egg hunt, mountains speckled with blossoms, and spring adventures.
Next, we have the perfect place to stay while you’re on your spring adventure. The Villas at Coosawattee River Resort offers one, two, and three bedroom cabins and villas throughout the Appalachian Mountains and in some of the most breath-taking spots around the resort. Options include fireplaces, hot tubs, and lofts for an accommodation that is perfect for your traveling entourage.
While staying at The Villas at Coosawattee, enjoy some amazing resort amenities. Whether you need to entertain the kids, relax and rejuvenate yourself, or reconnect with nature, the resort has something for everyone. The kids will have a blast exploring any one of the six river parks, and more specifically, walking the suspension bridge across to Fishtrap Park. Visit the Recreation Center for a heated indoor pool, a fitness center, tennis, and miniature golf. And reconnecting with nature has never been easier with fishing ponds, walking trails, picnic & cook-out facilities, and peaceful parks throughout the property.
Right outside the Eagle Mountain Gate, The General Store is a step back in time to slower days of the old general mountain store where friends gather for special activities, every day needs, good food, good times, and arts and crafts. The General Store dishes up hearty breakfasts, and the deli is a popular lunch time spot. Picturesque picnic tables outline the entrance of the store, giving the ideal opportunity to enjoy the spring sunshine with your sandwich. And if you need to pick up some grocery items for your villa or cabin, The General Store is your destination.
