Spring in the NC High Country

Spring in the High Country is like no other. Rhododendrons bloom in the brightest pink, covering the mountains in a floral landscape that will last until fall. Sunsets become more dreamy. Sunrises give way to an abundance of birds and other wildlife. The Blue Ridge parkway starts seeing more and more traffic, hikers, photographers, artists, and children discovering a renewed love for the outdoors as the season progresses.
Some of the most popular events happen around this time of year as well. Tweestie Railroad has officially opened for the 2024 season. From music festivals to culinary weekends, there are a variety of events to attend as a family, couple, group of friends, or alone. There’s also quite a few recurring events including the Watauga County Farmers Market. You can find a full calendar of events over at exploreboone.com!
Some of our favorite spring-time trails include: The Boone Greenway, the Boone Fork Trail, Bass Lake, and Otter Falls. These are great trails that are on the easier side to get back into the swing of hiking if you’ve taken a break for the Winter season. Sometimes our local black bears aren’t the only ones who hibernate.
If you’re looking to have an easy-going, chill Spring, you can enjoy more relaxing High Country activities. There are many museums, spa centers, wineries & breweries, and other entertainment shows to see as well.
Whatever your High Country Spring looks like, there’s always something for you. If you’re hoping to make a Spring vacation more permanent, reach out to us! We’d love to help you find Bliss in the North Carolina Mountains.
