Friendly Folks, Close-Knit Community

Many people who live and visit Blue Ridge call it the modern-day "Mayberry", and I'm inclined to think that Andy Griffith would agree.

When you're a member of the Blue Ridge community, it's not rare at all for folks to recognize you and say "hey" when you're out and about in town. This is a community where front doors are left unlocked, and cars can be left running without worry of someone stealing it. 

Whether you join a church family or just want to be a part of the community, there are always events Downtown and throughout Fannin County where you can meet new people and participate in community activities. This is a town that cherishes safety, kindness and true Southern Hospitality.
