On top of that, there is a full fitness facility onsite, large pool, tennis courts, boating on a small lake, softball field, ropes courses, and much more. There is even a gorgeous waterfall just a short walk away. We're so excited about sharing the North Georgia and nearby North/South Carolina mountains with you from our spectacular base of operations at the luxurious Ramah Darom retreat center.
We have visited lots of great sites, and pulled together the best of the best for you to sample, including great hiking, kayaking, whitewater rafting, tubing, biking, rapelling, segway tours, trail rides, nature walks, and lots of great tours of museums, galleries, historical sites, natural wonders and more. We have even got a trip to a ruby and sapphire mine where you can hunt for your own gem-quality stones! We guarantee you will not get bored!
After the sun goes down, we will mingle and schmooze, learn new things, celebrate Shabbat, dance, and listen to some great music!. On Saturday night, we'll learn some local dances, Israeli dances, contra dances and much more with caller and educator Diane Silver, and some live musicians from Asheville, NC.
