North Carolina is a beautiful state offering beaches on the east coast and mountain ranges in the west. Just driving here is a scenic drive itself but there is also more to see with wildlife, natural wonders such as waterfalls and the beautiful colors of the seasons. The Great Smoky Mountains, Nantahala National Forest, the Appalachian Mountains, the Fontana Dam and more points of interest are available when driving on the miles of highways throughout Maggie Valley and nearby areas. You will find many great photo opportunities along the way and during your stops. For more information such as specific locations and directions, visit Maggie Valley Scenic Drives.
