Small Towns in Western North Carolina Worth Visiting

Small Towns Around Asheville

While Asheville gets all the press in the Western North Carolina mountains, we know that there are some other amazing small towns and communities all around. From the borders of Eastern Tennessee, Southern Virginia, and northern Georgia, the mountain region of North Carolina has its own culture that’s so very different from the low country, the coast, and everywhere in between. We could go on forever showcasing small towns, but here are just a few.

Saluda

About 45 minutes from Asheville down 26 (past Hendersonville) you’ll come across the small town of Saluda. Enjoy outdoor activities through the local outfitters and zipline companies. Or, stroll through the small downtown area and end up for a late lunch or dinner at The Purple Onion, a restaurant that has served the community since 1998.

Sylva

Sylva, tucked into the mountains on the way to Georgia off 74, is the epitome of small-town charm. Along with popular outdoor activities that thrive in our mountains, Sylva is also home to Innovation Brewing, one of the region’s most celebrated small businesses.

Waynesville

The city of Waynesville is a classic southern charmer with plenty of places to get food, watch live music, or enjoy an adult beverage. The Blue Ridge Parkway goes through Waynesville so you can enjoy a drive through the mountains. Or check out the Cataloochee Valley, a place known for seeing elk.

Brevard

The city of Brevard, which is in Transylvania county, has also been a great attraction. It’s best known for the charming downtown as well as the famous white squirrels. There’s even a White Squirrel Festival held in the town every year.

Marshall

If you head north from Asheville up 25 from Weaverville, you’ll find the little river town of Marshall. Nestled on the banks of the French Broad, Marshall is a growing community welcoming to creative folk from all around the WNC area. Visit Blannahassett Island to see the artist studios there.

Mars Hill

Not to be confused with Marshall, Mars Hill is also a nearby town welcoming to anyone who wants to wander the tree-lined streets. Mars Hill is home to Mars Hill College, a private university known for the liberal arts.

Hot Springs

Further north, visit the city of Hot Springs. It has, as you might imagine, hot springs that you can soak in while looking out over the gorgeous NC mountains. The Appalachian Trail is also an intersection right in the middle of town. Nearby, also on the Appalachian Trail, is Max Patch, a unique bald mountain perfect for hiking or picnics.

We could go on for days listing towns all around WNC. And maybe we’ll revisit the idea in the future talking about more of the amazing places to visit and live in our area. We’d love to hear from you. What are your favorite small towns outside of Asheville?
