In the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, northeast of Linville, sits one of the states' most popular tourist destinations. Grandfather Mountain, with its peak at 5,946 feet above sea level, is a true North Carolina gem. It contains some of the oldest geologic formations on earth and has nearly unmatched biodiversity.

Want to spend a weekend in the mountains hiking and checking out some Asheville breweries? Or maybe you want to head to the beach and spend the weekend with your toes in the sand? North Carolina provides both options, with many more in between.
