Welcome To

Banner Elk, North Carolina!

Within 25 minutes (or less) of Banner Elk’s lone stoplight visitors can enjoy attractions, outdoor adventure, family fun, winter sports, shopping, museums, wineries & breweries, spas and much more. In spring and summer, visitors come to Banner Elk to enjoy beautiful scenery and pleasant temperatures. The town is located at 3,701 feet above sea level, making it a cool getaway as warm weather becomes pervasive in the South. Warmer months bring opportunities for hiking, biking, rafting, tubing, horseback riding, antiquing, festivals and gallery tours. Edge of the World outfitters in downtown Banner Elk serves up exhilarating whitewater and river adventures, as well as rock climbing excursions. A more relaxing outdoor experience is available at Wildcat Lake, a free public lake in town complete with a white sand beach, swimming area, fishing pier, canoe rentals and a park. North Carolina’s first alpine roller coaster, Wilderness Run Alpine Coaster, offers year-round excitement for folks of all ages. Downhill mountain biking provides a different kind of thrill ride at Beech Mountain Bike Park. Meanwhile, famed mountain attractions like Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Tweetsie Railroad and The Blowing Rock are just a short drive away. www.bannerelk.com/things-to-do
