Moments That Matter

Lake Lure and the Blue Ridge Foothills is an ideal destination all year long. Four distinct seasons offer visitors an abundance of opportunities to create unique experiences each time they visit. Visit in the spring as nature comes to life in their greenways, parks and trails or spend your summer by the lake enjoying the cool water on a hot summer day. Relish in the peace and quiet as you meander down scenic country roads surrounded by the brilliant colors of fall that blanket the mountains, or spend the holidays entranced by a magical display of over a million Christmas lights and downtown carriage rides.

Chimney Rock & Flowering Bridge

Thousands of visitors come each year to take in the panoramic 75-mile view from high atop the granite monolith that is Chimney Rock. You can also walk across one of the most beautiful highway bridges that you’ll ever find! The Lake Lure Flowering Bridge opened in October 2013, transforming a former highway bridge into a gorgeous garden.
