NC High Country Press Kit

Welcome to the NC High Country Press Kit!  This region encompasses the true mountains of North Carolina, more miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway than any other region and is known for outdoor adventure and cultural heritage.  Any season you choose to visit, you will find unique activities. 

Enjoy snow tubing at the largest snow tubing park on the East Coast, ski or snowboard at Appalachian Ski Mountain or sled at the highest town on the East Coast, Beech Mountain. 

See a myriad of rare flowers bloom at Grandfather Mountain, an international biosphere reserve and enjoy an international award-winning wine after canoeing the second oldest river in the world! 

Take advantage of our cool temperatures and hike the highest peaks on the Blue Ridge Parkway or bike over 40 miles of mountain biking trails.  Finish off the day by catching some live mountain music

Visit one of our world-famous festivals,  pick your own apples at a historic orchard and drive a country back road to admire the fall colors.
