Part of the Appalachian Mountains that extend from Canada all the way down to Alabama, the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina are where the chain's loftiest peaks kiss the sky. The mountainous region is nestled in the western corner of the state, and is collectively known as "high country." The Blue Ridge Mountains are also home to a dazzling array of plants and wildlife. In fact, by some estimates, this small corner of North Carolina contains more ecological diversity than the entire European continent.
Major attractions in the Blue Ridge Mountains include:
Whether you want to base your holiday in one of the charming mountain towns or rough it in a cabin in the woods, vacation rentals let you author the tone of your own vacation. Vacation rentals also provide more space and better amenities at a more affordable rate than traditional hotels.
From the Blue Ridge Mountains, you can head east across North Carolina to visit the beautiful city of Charlotte en route to its famous Coastal Plains region. The North Carolina coast and the islands that lie just beyond it are home to some of the most beautiful stretches of shoreline in the entire United States.
