Big Canoe Timeshare
Big Canoe, in Northern Georgia's Appalachian Mountains, is only an hour from Atlanta but a world away from the stress and hectic nature of city life. Here, you'll be surrounded by lush forests and mountain vistas, unique attractions, and even the abandoned gold mines of the USA's first major gold rush back in 1828. With a Big Canoe timeshare, you'll find yourself in the heart of a welcoming and charming community whether you've come for one of the annual festivals or an outdoor experience set to your own pace.
Big Canoe residents will find themselves with a full social calendar that stretches from day into night. During the summer months, the outdoor movie series can entertain all ages with family-friendly blockbusters and popcorn, while the local bars and restaurants can cater to a more adult crowd wanting to stay up late and have fun with friends and family members. Your Big Canoe timeshare will also open up access to swimming, boating, fishing, tennis, golf, and other leisure sports for you to enjoy during your trip.
Significant Native American History
Around the area, you'll find many daytime activities. Historically, North Georgia was home to the Paleo and Cherokee Native Americans. Lake Petit and Indian Rocks Park still show the ancient stone monuments of the first people to call this area home. As we mentioned, in 1828, this area saw the USA's first major gold rush and you can still tour or dig around for gold and gold flakes in some of the old mining areas. And if all you want is a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the scenery, the laid-back pace at Big Canoe makes it a perfect retreat to zone out and relax.
The busiest travel season is in summer, from June through August, but the long shoulder season in spring and fall is equally pleasant with less crowds around a Big Canoe timeshare. The high temperatures of the summer months are more moderate in the spring and fall, so it becomes easier to enjoy high-energy outdoor activities such as biking or hiking along the miles of trails during those months. The fall also is the best time to enjoy places such as Burt's Pumpkin Farm and the long scenic drives through the fall colors or to take a train ride along the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway to Copperhill, TN.
Wintertime is Special
Winter is the slow season, but a Big Canoe timeshare can be a winter wonderland for visitors. Families especially will enjoy the Christmas Special Express on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway which has special guests from the North Pole: Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, and all his elves ride along with passengers in December. Skiing, skating, and sleigh riding are other popular winter activities for the entire family and visitors of all ages.
