Highlands, North Carolina At Dusk In Pictures

Our site may contain affiliate links. Read Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

A short 2 hour drive from Atlanta, the Highlands in North Carolina feels like a world away from metro Atlanta. Maybe it is the ~4,100+ elevation, a warm wood burning fire, the views of the Appalachian mountain range…or just the champagne

There is just something special about being in the mountains during the spring time.





There is plenty to do in and around the Highlands. What’s your favorite thing to see, experience or place to eat in this area?

  1. My family has had a mountain home in Highlands for 15 years now. I absolutely love that area. So many great hiking trails and downtown Highlands and Cashiers are such cute towns!! Suggest this place to anyone who wants a beautiful, quiet mountain get away! Usually don’t comment but could not resist seeing this post and not giving a shout out to my second home 😉 p.s. Ask Mommy Points about it. She been there several times with me and loves it!

  2. Love western North Carolina! I have family in the Franklin area and we regularly head towards highlands as well. Highlands has some great hiking and waterfalls. We usually visit the Nature Center and botanical gardens. If you are up for an adventure (and a bit of a drive) we also love to go rafting on the Nantahala or tubing at Deep Creek, both about an hour away in the Bryson City area. But, you may want warmer weather for those cold water options.
