Pappys Roadside Riverwalk Shops ~ Blairsville GA
FUDGE screamed the sign as we barreled past! Wait! Stop! We can't possibly pass by homemade FUDGE!
Pappy's Riverwalk is a typical roadside tourist trap from yesteryear! Old horse drawn wagons are gathered in the circular lawn, huge statues of soldiers decorate the entrance to Pappy's, it looks like a cross between the western towns of the Southwest, and a Civil War post. As a child, I was always fascinated by places like this, in the middle of nowhere, with statues and wagons, Indians, a veritable feast for little eyes!
And fudge for mom! 24 varieties of homemade fudge are sure to hit your taste buds! Pappy's Fudge and Gifts is a can't miss! (see that article)
Mountain Country Kettle Korn made by Candace - you can't miss that! Your kids have got to taste kettle corn at least once in their lives! (see that article)
Souvenirs, Georgia themed stuff for the kids and lots of gorgeous postcards can be found at Pappy's many stores. You will find the Riverwalk Restaurant, collectibles, antiques, specialty shops, ice cream, Amish furniture, more specialty shops and crafts galore! Did I mention they had fudge???
When the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia come alive with the colors of fall, Pappy's has fresh apples and all sorts of apple treats, so be sure and stop in the autumn! Watch for special seasonal activities going on at Pappy's! And of course, there is fudge.
How to get there, head South down US Highway 129,out of Blairsville on the way to Brasstown Bald, Track Rock, and Helton Falls. You will see Pappy's huge establishment, on the right hand side, about 8 miles out of Blairsville GA. Be sure and stop for awhile at this roadside venue - it will be a kick for the kids and bring you back to when you were a kid!!
Tell the good folks at Pappy's Riverwalk that Living History Sites sent you, and no matter what, get some fudge!!
