The Underground Appalachians
The Boone Area boasts awesome views—but some of those vistas are inside a mountain!
Linville Caverns is an exciting example of how water can sculpt a masterpiece underground. Visitors tour vast rooms and hallways carved by water over many centuries. And the stalactites and stalagmites of the only publicly accessible cavern in North Carolina are partially handicapped accessible.
When rainy weather might otherwise keep visiting vacationers "inside," Linville Caverns is an especially memorable experiencein a subterranean world where rain carves caverns but doesn't fall on underground explorers.
The Boone Area is the perfect place to savor the most popular unit of the National Park System. Explore the Blue Ridge Parkway!
