Black Mountain North Carolina is a wonderful little town just 10 minutes east of Asheville and is definitely a place that you need to experience. From delicious eateries, to craft breweries, and a downtown shopping district filled with art, antiques, and even an old fashioned Town Hardware store. It takes about 30 minutes to walk through, but you can easily spend a day or two in all of the fantastic shops around town. Black Mountain NC has the small town vibe that many can’t really find in Asheville nowadays.
The outdoor scene in Black Mountain is vibrant with a walkable downtown area, a beautiful lake nearby where you can view the Seven Sister Mountains, and a park that has a nice area for the pups, and a short walking trail with birdhouses lining the path, In addition to that, Montreat NC is right up the road and that town is all outdoors and features many hiking trails.
