Little Switzerland area Attractions
The Orchard at Alta Pass is an Appalachian cultural and historical center celebrating the people, music, art, and natural beauty of the Blue Ridge mountains. Over 100 years old, the Orchard sits right on the Blue Ridge Parkway providing some of the most amazing scenery in North Carolina. Enjoy live music, dancing, storytelling and more Wednesday through Sunday during the season. Located off the Parkway at Milepost 328.3 between Spruce Pine and Little Switzerland.
Mount Mitchell State Park -  There are a few places in the world that still stand apart from the ordinary. Rising more than a mile high, surrounded by the gentle mist of low-hanging clouds, Mount Mitchell State Park is one of these extraordinary places. In the crest of the timeworn Black Mountains lies the summit of Mount Mitchell, the highest point east of the Mississippi. For those who ascend this mighty peak, what looms in the horizon is a feast for the eyes—breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, rolling ridges and fertile valleys. Forested and forever misty, 1,855-acre Mount Mitchell State Park will provide you with some of the most tranquil moments you'll ever experience. 
Crabtree Falls - Located at milepost 339, Crabtree Meadows snack bar, campgrounds and Falls is a versatile recreation area. The two trails to the Falls are moderate to strenuous but the natural beauty is more than sufficient reward. This is a truly peaceful and pristine setting.
