The weather forecast for the weekend looks sunny and pleasant but don’t forget to bring a jacket along just in case! Tweetsie Railroad’s Ghost Train event kicks off this evening and Apple Hill Farm in Banner Elk is set to celebrate National Alpaca Farm Days on Saturday and Sunday.

  • My family and I (including our 4 year old son, our 14 year old daughter, and our 1 year old) visited Grandfather Mountain the day after Christmas. The weather was beautiful and the view was amazing. Walking across the mile high bridge and standing on the peak was a magical moment for me and my children that I will keep in my mind as one of those moments that helps get you through the rest of your less magical days.
