Blue Ridge Mountains North Carolina

blue ridge mountains north carolina

The stunning Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina are a great place to call home. Perfect for young families, professionals or active seniors who want to enjoy all the amenities of modern life in a more relaxed atmosphere, the Blue Ridge Mountains offer something for everyone. Up here, life is like honey dripping from a jar, and every day is sweet.

Come to Nature’s Playground
The Blue Ridge is a site of unsurpassed scenic beauty. High mountain meadows teeming with wildflowers border pristine lakes, where deer come to drink in the cool, misty mornings. Live near the untouched wilderness of the Pisgah National Forest, bike the Blue Ridge Parkwayblue ridge parkway and ski the snowy slopes in winter time. Wooded peaks jut into the sky, creating a striking backdrop for the houses nestled among them. Hiking and equestrian trails dot the landscape, perfect for exploration, and the streams and rivers are home to trout that are waiting for you to drop a line.

Discover an Unbeatable Climate
The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina enjoy four temperate seasons without suffering any weather extremes. Snow flies in the high country, but even there the weather is too warm to support a true Alpine climate. In the low country at the base of the mountains, the weather is pleasantly mild all year long, without the extreme summer temperatures of the coast. People come here from all over; from Florida, where air conditioning is fact of life, and from the Northeast, where they’ve grown tired of the yearly slog through slush and snow. Every day is a great day to play in the Blue Ridge.

A Land of Living History and Culture
Nestled in the mountain valleys are dozens of small towns, some of which played important roles in our nation’s history. Visit museums and renovated frontier homes ranging from humble cabins to palatial mansions. Artists have always been drawn to the Blue Ridge, and the region’s tradition of hand-crafted furnishings lives on. Painters, sculptors, artisans and musicians work and live in the Blue Ridge, displaying their wares in dozens of boutiques and galleries or performing live at local festivals. Asheville is a cultural landmark and home to several major corporations, world-class hospitals and the University of North Carolina.

A True Community
Along with the wonders of nature and cultural and historic landmarks, the Blue Ridge offers something that’s in short supply these days: A true sense of community. Our residents share a love of place and each other and are neighborly in the very best sense of the word. Come to the Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina’s scenic showplace, and discover the life you’ve always dreamed of.
