Diverse Boone Area Options Await



No matter which season entices you to the Boone Area of North Carolina, the long list of engaging attractions and outdoor adventures will amaze you. 


Neon colored autumn leaves or spring flowers are the perfect backdrop for any activity, including the Boone area's many festivals or visiting the nationally known attractions that call the High Country home. 


One of the nation's most diverse ecosystems explodes in spring blooms that make the Blue Ridge Parkway the most visited unit of the National Park System. Summer ups the Parkway's appeal. It's also a great time to visit the Boone Area's four state parks. The coveted cool summer climate of the High Country makes it a joy to take a scenic bike ride or hike, play golf, tennis, or go canoeing and kayaking, whitewater rafting, or tubing.


With an average summer high temperature of about 75 degrees, Boone Area leisure options attract retirees and challenge the most extreme athletes and thrill-seekers. Don't want to troll through the options? Check out our itineraries—we've done the work for you!


Autumn turns the Boone Area electric shades of red and gold, then winter blankets the mountains with white. The South's most concentrated cluster of ski slopes tempt the entire region with winter fun that also includes snowboarding, snow tubing and sledding, ice skating, hiking and cross country skiing


No wonder the Boone Area of North Carolina has become one of United States' best, and best-known, places to play.
