Venture Out and Explore communities in the Southeast Mountains

Venture Out Communities in the Southeast Mountains - ideal-LIVING MagazineImagine the perfect spring road trip. Then think of the enchanting mountain town of Asheville, North Carolina, as your base camp, the hub from which unique, glorious and memorable travels are found right in town, or an hour up country roads in North Carolina, down to the Greenville, South Carolina, area and over to the north Georgia mountains, all of which wind through the highest elevations in the eastern United States. That’d be a good spring exploration!

Maybe you’ll head northeast on Highway 19 to discover Mount Mitchell and the Penland School of Crafts. Head a little further northeast on Highway 221 to reach Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls, Blowing Rock, or Boone, even into Tennessee. Or turn back southwest toward Georgia along U.S. Route 23 to Cherokee and Highlands. Then turn back east toward Greenville, South Carolina, along Hwy 123. All the while traveling roads framed by blooming wild azaleas, dazzling dogwoods, broad stands of rhododendron, and streams and waterfalls flush from spring rains.
