Relax and Unwind in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Escape life’s hectic pace with a getaway to Hendersonville in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Visitors love the beauty and southern hospitality of this vibrant town (and surrounding area) that welcomes all with possibilities as wide as its Main Street sidewalks.

Hendersonville stands out with a pedestrian-friendly downtown, distinctive hiking trails, outdoor adventure, family activities, a thriving culinary scene, and a collection of wineries, breweries, and cideries that comprise the popular Cheers! Trail.

The arts are celebrated at studios and galleries on three Blue Ridge Crafts Trails and with Broadway-style shows at the renowned Flat Rock Playhouse. Agritourism plays a key role, especially from early August through the middle of October when dozens of apple orchards invite visitors to pick apples, sample fresh cider and baked goods, and enjoy activities like wagon rides, corn mazes, pumpkin patches and apple cannons. Fall is a popular time to visit Hendersonville, but in this “City of 4 Seasons,” you are sure to find activities to fill your day in winter and even on rainy days.
