The new year is an exciting time to reinvent your everyday routine by building healthy habits and establishing resolutions. These resolutions and habits oftentimes include getting fit, being active, spending time outdoors, or living life to the fullest while exploring and taking advantage of more opportunities. However, after a few weeks of the same routine, resolutions can become tiresome and overwhelming. But that shouldn’t stop you from accomplishing your goals! That’s why we’re inviting you to Maggie Valley, North Carolina to reinvigorate your New Year’s resolutions with mountaintop views and air that inspires.

Active Outdoor Adventures

Whether you’re a nature lover, water enthusiast, or thrill seeker, our gorgeous mountain-scapes have a fresh, breathtaking backdrop for your active adventures.

Take A Hike

Here in Maggie Valley, we prefer to climb mountains and conquer resolutions at the same time. Experiencing visual results when first starting to get active will take time, but the payoff of reaching mountain peaks and rushing waterfalls is a pretty motivating form of gratification in the meantime! Hike along one of our many mountain trails like Soco Falls, Waterrock Knob, Blackrock Mountain, and the Boogerman Hiking Trail.

Take a Mountain Bike Trek

Want to work those legs while capturing great views and memories? Cycle and take on the East Loop of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. With 112 miles of trail featuring glimpses of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Soco Gap, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and more, you can challenge yourself to hours of foot-to-pedal fun and picturesque scenery.

Exciting Explorations

Ride the Smoky Mountains of Maggie Valley

Ride the wave of adventure and accomplish exploration in style! With rental motorcycle and slingshot services from shops like Slinging in the Smokies, you can feel the rush of fresh, mountain air while catching breathtaking views and expanding your covered ground.

Or if you would rather cover more intellectual ground by appreciating sweet, vintage rides and learning about their histories, you’ll want to check out the Wheels Through Time Museum. Here, you’ll find more than 300 of America’s rarest and most historic classic motorcycles and 24 marques on display and in operating condition.

Explore With Your Taste Buds

Exploration isn’t just about conquering more ground. Immersing yourself in the cultural aspects of a new place is just as important, and what better a way than to explore its food scene? Try town favorites like Frankie’s Italian Trattoria, Butts on the Creek, and Joey’s Pancake House.

Whatever your New Year’s resolution is, we’re rooting for you and would love to see you work towards accomplishing it in our wide-open spaces. Just don’t forget to tag us @VisitNCSmokies and #HayNow for a chance to be featured in our upcoming marketing materials.
