North Carolina Mountain Towns

There’s something very special about Western North Carolina’s mountain towns. Some say it’s the majestic rolling mountains and their beckoning call to be explored, while others say it’s the down-home friendly folks who give you the feeling you’ve known them for years. Or perhaps it is the time-honored traditions that are soaked to the bone in rich southern Appalachian heritage. There’s just something about Haywood County and its five Smoky Mountain towns that keeps folks coming back year after year.

Each of our North Carolina mountain towns has its own personality and charm, offering an authentic Appalachian experience unlike any other. Nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains, you’ll find main streets lined with historic buildings, restaurants, family-owned stores and trendy shops. Come explore the best mountain towns in NC!
