Country Living Names Black Mountain One Of The Best Small Towns To Visit This Summer

Country Living has selected Black Mountain as one of the 30 best towns to visit this summer.

Outside of the South, not too many people know about Black Mountain and everyone who does know about it would like to keep it a secret. This town of barely 8,000 souls enjoys natural spectacles like spectacular Chimney Rock, and Lake Lure, a rich history of arts (the remarkable Black Mountain College, a landmark 25-year experiment in arts education was located here) and a charming downtown with cafes, bakeries, craft breweries, and shops selling Appalachian crafts. Just 15 minutes up the road, you’ll find the Biltmore Estate and the buzzy streets of Asheville. Obviously, this is a good secret to know.
