Known as the “Apple Capital of Georgia,” Ellijay is obviously full of apple orchards like this one, Hillcrest Orchards. You can pick and fill buckets of the fruit to bring home or purchase all manners of apple products, from apple butter to apple pie. It’s almost two hours from Atlanta, right on the border of the Chattahoochee National Forest.
