You’ll Want To Visit This Small North Carolina Mountain Town As Soon As Possible

With the dog days of summer heating up to soaring temperatures, the best escape is to head to the mountains and experience fresh, high elevation air and a cool breeze on your cheek. Luckily, North Carolina is home to the highest elevation town on the east coast, Beech Mountain. For a great summer getaway this quaint town is perfect.

From someone who visited Beech Mountain last summer (and this winter, of course) I’ll say it’s amazing during the warmer months and a must-experience. For the full list of activities for family fun month, click here.

While you’re there, how about extending your trip to a long weekend and visiting Banner Elk? Wondering what to do? We’ve already planned two whole days for you!
