North Carolina’s beloved “castle on the hill” resides on an 8000-acre estate that includes beautiful gardens and woodlands and an award-winning winery (the nation’s most visited). The magnificent 250-room mansion itself is the largest private residence in the country and offers a self-guided tour that could easily last for hours.

It’s not a destination, but rather an experience. Considered “America’s most scenic drive”, the Blue Ridge Parkway consists of 469 miles of natural beauty, including mountain views, hiking trails, and picnic sites. Seasonal changes along the Parkway are very dramatic. Parkway intersects Asheville at US 25, 70, 74A and NC 191. There is a visitor’s “Destination” center that shows the history of the parkway and the Folk Art Center just within a mile or two as you enter going north from Hwy 74. The highest peak on the east coast, Mt. Mitchell is just a 45 min drive north once you enter the Parkway.

#3. Chimney Rock National Park
Hwy 64/74A
Chimney Rock, NC 28720
828-625-9611

25 minutes east of Cloud 9 Farm

Experience the beauty and breadth of the Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounding waterfalls. Visitors can navigate the network of trails or use the 26-story elevator to reach the top of the rock to enjoy the 75-mile view. A short walk away is a 404-foot waterfall.
