At Switzerland Inn and Little Switzerland NC, there are so many things to do and see, the hardest part will be choosing what to explore first. Stay at Switzerland Inn and relax poolside or on your private balcony surrounded by the mountain valley views. Or spend some time browsing the shops at Little Switzerland North Carolina for handmade treasures, jewelry and collectibles.
As each season unfolds, opportunities abound for leisure, recreation and family adventures in the Little Switzerland and Western North Carolina mountain communities. In springtime, glimpse the first wildflowers on a picnic and family hike at Crabtree Meadows. Little Switzerland is the perfect escape from the summer heat. Trade in sweltering humidity for cool mountain breezes and the mist of a mountain waterfall on a visit to Linville Falls and Linville Gorge NC Wilderness area. And nothing compares to the brilliant fall colors and scents of the Blue Ridge Parkway - the mountain valleys will be ablaze in every shade of orange, red and yellow.
For the more adventurous, hike to the top of Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak in the east, or go rock climbing in the Linville Gorge Wilderness area or challenge the Diamondback and put your motorcycle or sportscar to the test (Route 226A - the Diamondback). Grandfather Mountain, Biltmore House, Tweetsie Railroad and championship mountain golf are all within an easy drive via the Blue Ridge Parkway. With so much to see and do on your North Carolina Mountain Vacation, you'll want to return to Little Switzerland again and again.
