Blue Ridge is a fictional town located deep in the heart of Kentucky. It is home to one of the most well known equestrian academies in the United States. Students and staff from all over the world join the academy for what it has to offer. Do you have what it takes to join us and learn from the Academy?
This place is the most comfortable place to get coffee around Blue Ridge. In the summer, there are benches and tables outside, but in the winter, all activity is confined to the small, cozy atmosphere inside of the shop. The air smells nicely of roast coffee, and the tables all have convenient access to plugs. Once in a while, the tables get moved away and a small stage appears, hosting local singers or even karaoke nights.
Clothes, clothes, as far as the eye can see. This store carries clothes, as well as limited accessories. The variety should appeal to most tastes, although some selections are limited, and it is possible that you would get a better deal elsewhere. But then, as the only decent clothes store in Blue Ridge, there aren't many options elsewhere, and their selection is big enough to satisfy most needs.
Since there is only the one Cinema in Blue Ridge, there is no need for another name, and this place sticks to its roots. Come and check out the latest blockbusters, or see what's playing in the 'nostalgia' corner, where older films are re-shown on a random, day-to-day basis. Don't forget to swing by the snack bar before your movie, and remember to show that ID card, because students and staff can get discounts on tickets!
This little bookstore, located at the corner of the Livery and thus having access to almost an entire wall of windows, is light and airy. A loft level holds a secondary store of second-hand books, as well as a small nook that is carpeted in soft rugs and has comfortable armchairs and beanbags scattered around. Is it really a surprise that the Blue Ridge Book Club meets here? After all, it's a wonderful place to spend a day, as long as you don't mind the rule that protects the books: No food or drinks!
In the far corner of the Livery sits a small, cozy eatery. Beautifully decorated, with a wall of glass in the back, it overlooks the edge of Blue Ridge, with a glimpse of Blue Waters River in the back. If you're hoping to eat here, make sure that you can pick up the tab, though!
Despite the name, which would lead you to believe that this is a cooking or baking store, A Pinch of This is actually a store that sells almost anything related to the home that you could imagine. From candles to pillows, comforters to trinkets, this is a place you could come to spend an hour or two, browsing through the deals and looking to find that perfect reason for coming, or maybe not. What you find could possibly not be there the next time, as there's no constant stock list!
A bar? Not really. With so many students at Blue Ridge, the owners decided to outwit the competition and turn the place into a place for teenagers. With various non-alcoholic drinks and a large dance-floor, the place is open to both students and Blue Ridge's citizens. It's also possible to rent the space for a party!
Located in the centre of town, this shopping centre is the place to be. In the summer, cute little tables with umbrellas can be found, ready to welcome anyone that's looking to sit and read for a spell, or even just enjoy a coffee while people-watching. The stores that are located in this area are all family-owned, and the half-circle that they shape is a fun walk for anyone looking to get in a bit of exercise.
