Wonderful little town! We highly recommend a trip to Chimney Rock if you want to stay away from the commercialization of other mountain cities. Lovely downtown area with very friendly shopkeepers to help you with anything! Fun little restaurants with homemade desserts, meals. Beautiful creek running throughout town, fun to watch kayakers! Close to Lake Lure which is another must see in the area! Don't miss out on a visit to "chimney rock" rock! Fantastic trip, great people, wonderful prices...very, very family friendly!
