Take This Amazing 2-Day Getaway In North Carolina If You Need A Break From Real Life

Located at 3,700 feet in the sky, Banner Elk encourages you to leave the stresses of day-to-day life behind and fully immerse yourself in this quaint mountain town. Really, there’s no way you can’t. As soon as you get out of the car you’ll feel a cool mountain breeze on your cheek and get lost in the surrounding High Country views. While the downtown is laid out quite simply, there’s so much adventure, cuisine, and experiences waiting…you’ll want to make this a 2-day getaway.

There’s really no way NOT to love everything Banner Elk has to offer. It’s a favorite destination for vacationers, retirees, adventurers and even travelers passing through. While it’s a jam-packed two days, you can add or subtract to the list. Once you’re in the town, you’ll realize there is so much to offer in terms of getting away from it all. One thing that is true though, there’s no way you won’t feel relaxed and rejuvenated after two days spent in a place that feels a million miles away from it all.

Have you visited Banner Elk before or live here now? What else would you add to the 2-day itinerary?

If you find yourself in the mountains within the next two months, take a dip at these amazing waterfall swimming holes before it’s too late!
