Media Room for Rutherford County NC Tourism

Retreat to a destination where simple pleasures outshine digital-age spectacles – a place where Main Streets reign over mega malls; where nature delivers the best adventures; and where history lives boldly and visibly in architecture, story, song, and spirit.

Experience these journeys and more when you visit Rutherford County located in the majestic Blue Ridge Foothills of Western North Carolina. Home to Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Rutherfordton, Spindale, Forest City, and Bostic, there is a world waiting for you to explore, enjoy and love.

We invite you to come to see it for yourself and check out the view from our front porch.

Please contact Kersten Conklin at or text/call 919.302.7579 to discuss media visit opportunities, any special requests, or immediate needs.
