While the South Carolina Upstate is a
“foothills region,” the real mountains are
found across the border in North Carolina.
A significant stretch of the Appalachian Trail
runs through the North Carolina mountains,
along with hundreds of other highland trails,
so hiking and camping are an important
part of the region’s lifestyle. Mountain biking and horseback riding are also popular
activities, as well as canoeing, kayaking and
whitewater rafting. For residents who enjoy
less strenuous pursuits, the local hillsides and
valleys are home to numerous—and often
The region’s higher altitudes also make
the North Carolina mountains perfect for
those who love the winter-sports lifestyle.
Snow skiing, snowboarding and ice skating
are just a few of the cold-weather recreations
that are available at a dozen destination
resorts in the region.
However, the North Carolina mountain
lifestyle is about much more than outdoor
recreation. This is a region rich in culture
and creativity, displayed at venues like The
Turchin Center for the Visual Arts in Boone
and the Blowing Rock Art and History
Museum. Highlighting the region’s summer
events calendar are the Grandfather Moun-
tain Scottish Highland Games and Folk-
moot USA, an international celebration of
music and dance. The North Carolina Apple
Festival in Hendersonville has been a fall
tradition for more than 60 years, perhaps sec-
ond only in popularity to the extraordinary
autumn colors that are the signature image
of the North Carolina mountain lifestyle.
The thriving city of Asheville offers
residents a variety of urban lifestyle
options, from the lively downtown area with
its concert halls, art galleries and award-winning restaurants to the exquisite
Biltmore Estate located just outside of town.
And the mountain lifestyle can include visits
to a one-of-a-kind Carolina destination at
Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort.
