Upcoming Family Vacation


My family and I will be coming to Highlands area soon and would love some good ideas for our toddler… things to do and restaurants!! Any good family friendly spots? Hitting the Dillard House Restaurant, Andy’s Trout Farm and Jackson Hole Gem Mining… other tips would be much appreciated!

There are many restaurants in the downtown area of Highlands. Walking around and using this website to look at reviews should help you find what is best for your family.

We don't know your interests or toddler's age. My kids loved the unique City indoor pool. Touring the botanical garden was a good activity. A reasonable hike or two .. Sunset Mountain overlooking the city was interesting. Skiing or tubing at Sapphire or Scaly Mountain can be fun.

It’s a little bit of a drive ( 45 minutes or so) but Brevard NC has a wonderful downtown with a fabulous toy store ( OP Taylor’s) and a old school soda shop ( Rocky’s) with the best malt milkshakes on the planet. Also , Square Root restaurant is excellent for lunch or dinner. While in the area visit Looking Glass Falls , beautiful waterfall you can see from the car.. very little walking . Enjoy !
