Fall in Love with the NC Mountains by Exploring Our Small Towns and Scenic Drives
Mesmerizing views are just one of the many reasons to visit Lake Lure and the Blue Ridge Foothills. Although most people travel here over the spring and summer break to take a dip in the lake or enjoy the beach, fall is by far one of the most beautiful times to visit. Each year a blanket of fall color covers the mountains and hills throughout Rutherford County. A variety of activities such as ziplining, boat tours, nature trails and driving tours provide ample opportunity to immerse yourself in the fall foliage and enjoy everything our small towns have to offer.
Chimney Rock State Park
As if a 75-mile panoramic view isn't enough, now you can see it with a rainbow of fall colors from the top of Chimney Rock State Park.
