North Carolina is one of the most beautiful states in the country. The pristine coastlines down east and the rolling hills of the piedmont and foothills captivate hearts and imaginations. But nothing compares to the breathtaking scenery of western North Carolina.
The tallest mountains on the East Coast rise majestically from the valley floor, surrounding the cities of Asheville and Hendersonville. There are over 500,000 acres of protected forests throughout those mountains, providing residents and visitors with thousands of miles of hiking and mountain biking trails.
Land activities attract millions of tourists every year, but many visit the mountains for watersports. Our area is the fly fishing capital of North Carolina. Additionally, whitewater rafting, kayaking, and tubing are all available in area rivers like the French Broad and Nantahala.
