We'll start our day with a leisurely drive to Fred Hamilton Azalea Gardens. From there we'll head over to Blazin' Scoops in Hiawassee for a sweet treat. Then we'll make our way over to Cupid Falls for a short hike and photo opportunities. From here, we'll load back up into our cars and make our way to Blairsville to pick up some lunch to-go before making our way to the picturesque Crane Creek Vineyards. Here we will enjoy a beverage of you choice along with our packed lunches picnic style before heading back over to Brasstown Valley for the evenings festivities.
This drive is meant to take an easy leisurely pace, is kid friendly and parent approved. Bring comfortable shoes, strollers, an appetite for some sweet treats and camera. If you don't want to pick up a to-go lunch, feel free to bring your own picnic basket for the vineyard but you'll have to grab what you'd like before we start our adventure for the day.
