Highlands, NC
Highlands North Carolina has an aura about it. It’s in the air and is palpable as soon as you ascend the mountain arriving in a town that’s 4118 feet above sea level and 20 degrees cooler than anywhere else in the Southern plains. Some say “it’s just healthier in Highlands”. It’s sweater-weather every day. Families move here to breathe it all in. The beauty and climate of a temperate rainforest brings out the best in people whether you’re here to do nothing more than enjoy a good and a cup of coffee, or become one with the great outdoors during a long hike, or a day of fly fishing on a gin-clear mountain stream.
