Local Area Guide: Things to do / Activities / Attractions


The mountains and foothills of Western North Carolina are laced with waterfalls, from the majestic Whitewater Falls, highest east of the Mississippi, to simple, small, burbling but beautiful falls found in branches and creeks, especially after a rain. The beauty of these natural wonders offers spiritual as well as physical refreshment and renewal. The chilly mountain waters at the foot of many falls collects in natural swimming holes.
