Visiting the North Carolina Mountains
Summer days across the North Carolina Mountains means more time per day for you to get on out and explore. From the top Asheville attractions like the North Carolina Arboretum, Craggy Gardens, and Biltmore Village, to the road trip possibilities you’ll find along Interstate 40, the time is right to plan your trip into the NC Mountains.
Make the most of your stay in this region with some time spent exploring and enjoying Asheville. On August 13th, make your way over to Pack Square Park for the 50th Annual Shindig on the Green. From 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., this free event will entertain all members of your group with live music on the Bascom Lamar Lunsford Stage, food and drink vendors, and so much more.
One of Asheville’s top performance venues is the Orange Peel Social Aid and Pleasure Club.

Tickets range between $18 and $22, and doors open at 8 p.m. Along with Uncle Acid, Davana, and The Shrine will also perform.
From nearby Hendersonville, make the short, scenic drive north into Asheville on October 15th for a truly unique experience that will allow you run a-fowl. Falconry: The Sport of Kings will treat you to an evening of the history and artistry of falconry. Head for the Cradle of Forestry Historic Site in the Pisgah Forest and watch falconry professionals Pete Kipp and Jeff Curtis work their falcon magic. Ages six and up.

Out in Murphy, found in the far southwest corner of the state, you’ll find a wide range of excellent things to do during your stay. On September 30th, be sure to take in some local racing. Head for the Tri County Speedway at 7:30 p.m. for the 13th Annual Tarheel 50 race. With more than $4,000 in prize money up for grabs, it’ll be a dead heat to the finish line.
