Act On Your Dream! > Directory > Western North Carolina

Western North Carolina is one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

The whole western North Carolina area offers outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities.

Nearly everywhere you drive offers scenic views of our beautiful mountains, valleys, rivers, and lakes. Fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, biking, and other activities are popular with the people who live here and others who visit.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Western North Carolina is home to half of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The southern entrance to the park is located just north of Cherokee, NC and is near the southern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Most of the visitors to the park who come from the lower southeastern states arrive at the park through Cherokee.

The visitors from other parts of the country, and the rest of the world, generally arrive at the northern entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park by way of Gatlinburg, TN.

Roughly half of the park lies in Tennessee and the other half is in North Carolina. The tallest mountains east of the Mississippi River lie within the park boundaries.

Asheville, North Carolina

When most people think of western North Carolina, they think of Asheville, NC, but there are several dozen small towns located in the state west of Asheville.

Besides the Smoky Mountains, the biggest attraction in our area is the Biltmore House and Gardens, located on a huge estate in south Asheville. The Biltmore House is the largest private residence in the United States and I think everyone should visit it at least once. I could spend weeks in the library, alone.
