Information for Vacations in The Blue Ridge Mountains

Beginning as a narrow strip of land south of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the Blue Ridge Mountains cross Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and into Georgia. The Blue Ridge Province is a geographical area that includes other mountain ranges in the states of West Virginia and Tennessee with those that hold the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The excellent scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the lovely weather combine with rolling fairways to make the Roanoke and Shenandoah Valleys exceptional golf experiences.


King George III included the Blue Ridge Mountains when he defined the western edge of the American Colonies in 1763, even though they were considered Cherokee land in Georgia and North Carolina, and the Monacan, Saponi and the Tutelo Indians occupied the northern region of the mountains.  The Indians and the Blue Ridge Mountains themselves formed a barrier to the westward expansion of the Colonies.  Following the Revolutionary War, the newly independent Americans began to slowly force their way to the west.

Small farms, logging and mining were the principal industries of the settlers in the Blue Ridge Mountains for over a century. Most of this early westward movement regarded the Mountains as a an area to get through to more desirable land. The few that settled in the Blue Ridge Region tended to be mostly poor Scotch and Irish immigrants, who formed close knit communities that did not welcome newcomers and who developed a distinct regional culture.
