Dine at the famous Mountain View Restaurant with endless views, go gem mining, white water rafting, zip lining, hiking in the Pisgah National Forest, golfing, antiquing, and don't miss The Biltmore and Grove Park Inn in Asheville. Only 30-45 minutes away, visit Grandfather Mtn, Blowing Rock, Mt. Mitchell, Linville Gorge (the grand canyon of the Carolinas) , waterfalls and caverns, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure (where Dirty Dancing was filmed) or go snow skiing in the winter- several popular ski resorts abound. The nearby towns of Nebo, Marion and Morganton offer all conveniences and supplies.
