The perfect family getaway

There's no shortage of things to do in Marion, a small town that lies at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and whose Main Street is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Whether you're coming for a romantic weekend getaway from the big city or bringing the family for a summer break, there'll always be something to keep you busy. In the summer months, the town comes alive with festivities and events, so if you plan to visit between June and August, be sure to grab a Marion vacation rental early, to avoid disappointment.

Things to do

A culinary paradise

This culinary gem is renowned for its food production. Not far from your Marion vacation rental, you can swing by to English Farmstead Cheese to sample some tasty cheeses made from milk produced on-site. Afterwards, it's worth popping into Sweet Betsy Farm, where the bees create some of the state's finest raw honey. Finish the gastronomic day with a visit to the South Creek Vineyards & Winery to sample some award-winning wines. For a slice of history, step back in time at the Historic Carson House, a beautiful property created in the late 18th century by an Irish immigrant.

Activities

No better place to kayak and fish

As soon as you leave your Marion vacation rental, there's a host of exciting adventures to be had. Along the Catawba River, you can hop aboard tubes and kayaks to glide downstream, stopping for refreshing dips. If you bring your fishing equipment, you can cast from the banks of the lake to hook in a trout or salmon. Alternatively, if you've brought your clubs you can tee off at the nearby golf course, with a backdrop of the nearby mountains. If an outdoor activity is worth doing, it can be done in the Blue Mountain Area.

Weather

Marion's open all year around

Marion's elevated location keeps the summers and winters relatively mild. There's no particular time that's better than another to stay in a Marion vacation rental. The spring weather can often be wonderfully warm and, without the crowds, you may very well have the trails all to yourself. Summer peaks see the largest influx of vacationers and, if you want to score a rental around this time, try to book as early as possible. Winter sees flurries of snow that blanket the forests and mountains, making it the perfect time to dust off the cross-country skis.

Natural features

Herds of elk and solitary bobcats

For the best chance of seeing wildlife, drive up to the Pisgah National Forest, a vast 500,000-acre pristine park that makes up part of the Greater Smoky Mountains. A hike along the trails can reveal herds of elk and white-tailed deer through to wild turkeys and woodchucks. You'll want to keep your distance, but there are thought to be around 1,500 black bears living in the Smokies, some of which weigh up to 600 pounds. It's not that uncommon to spot elusive bobcats, the only wild felines inhabiting the park. Just remember to bring a good pair of binoculars.
