Western North Carolina, aka WNC, is a great getaway for any time of year. If you go in the summer, you're sure to beat the heat here in the Southeast U.S. Towns including Blowing Rock and Highlands are thousands of feet up, which makes for many cool nights. In Blowing Rock, concerts are regularly held in the city's park. Autumn is perfect for the changing foliage. With wide vistas in WNC, you're sure to be treated to a free outdoor show courtesy of Mother Nature.
