Western Region

This 13-county region cradles some of the coolest cities and towns in the state, and not just in temperature.  The Great Smoky Mountains and the southern tip of the Blue Ridge Mountains serve as the backdrop to this region, where local breweries, chocolatiers, apples, and agritourism are abundant.  The downtown districts pride themselves on offering creative economies with authentic shops and galleries, live bluegrass music, locally sourced fine and casual dining options, and lots of opportunities to explore.  The Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians call the Western region of North Carolina home.  Follow the NC Beer Guys Map, the Blue Ridge Craft Trails, or the Trail of Tears.  Explore some of the state’s best apple orchards.  Mountain bike or hike to the highest peaks in the mountains or down to the waterfalls; and whitewater raft or kayak down the icy-cold mountain rivers.  Do not forget to try your hand at a little fly fishing, or maybe just order North Carolina trout for dinner.  The Western region of North Carolina has a lot to do and is waiting for you!
