Grandfather Mountain is a great way to see the area without having to expend too much energy. It is the highest mountain in the area and you can pretty much drive to the top. There is a little zoo and bridge at the top which is a mile above sea level. You can also take the more strenuous route…

Point of Interest
“Linville Caverns are privately owned active limestone caverns located in northern McDowell County, North Carolina, just south of the village of Linville Falls, on U.S. Highway 221. The caverns are open to the public year-round for guided tours. Linville Caverns have been open for tours since the late 1930s and remain the only show caverns in North Carolina. The caverns were discovered in 1822 by local fishermen and since that time have been of interest to locals and travelers alike. Half hour guided tours escort visitors through the caverns with information about cavern history, resident creatures, and the formations viewed along the way. Formed in a deposit of Shady Dolomite at the base of Humpback Mountain, Linville Caverns offer an environment for the public to explore the subterranean world of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Visitors hear the lore surrounding the caverns, including the tale of the Civil War deserters who used the caverns as a hideout, as well as the geology of the stalactites, stalagmites, and other formations found on the tour route. In the fall and winter months, caverns visitors may be able to view the caverns' most popular residents, the tricolored bats and little brown bats. These insect-eating creatures hibernate in the caverns from late fall until early spring.”

“This is a great place to go tubing if you are with people who don't ski or are sick of skiing. It is an old ski resort they turned into a tubing hill so it has multiple lifts and slopes. It is a fun time all around. ”

Park
“This is a bit of a drive, but it is the highest point in Watauga County. The hike is 2 miles up, but there are lots of switchbacks so that it doesn't feel so steep.”
