Black Mountain, North Carolina

  • The town of Black Mountain is very cute with some great restaurants and shops. Plus, it’s immersed in the mountains!
  • Lake Tomahawk is also located in Black Mountain which has a great walking trail that looks out on the mountains and water. This lake also has tennis courts, a public pool, and picnic tables. I had a great time playing tennis with my grandpa and brother while looking out on the mountains.
  • Black Mountain is only a 15 minute drive from Asheville so it’s a great place to say because you can experience a small cute mountain town but if you want to go into the city, you absolutely can! 
  • Overall, if you want a mountain getaway while still having things to do, this is the place!
