If you are looking to discover the beauty and excitement of North Carolina’s South Mountains, Morganton is where to start. There is no better way to experience the outdoors than camping, kayaking and ziplining, but you’ll find even more in town!
Stay with Choice Hotels and it will be hard to miss the best local activities and attractions, including:
Great American wine doesn’t come from just California. The mountains of Western North Carolina produce some of the region’s finest grapes, and the folks at Silver Fork Winery surely make the case by sharing its vineyards’ finest. Get your first sips in the tasting room then step outside onto the open-door patio to enjoy the rest of your glass as you stare at the South Mountains in the immediate horizon.
Continue enjoying the outside in a more extreme setting at The Beanstalk Journey Zipline. Strap on your gear and start flying from one tree house to another, but make sure you wear something comfortable – you will be burning off some energy but the views from the air are well worth it.
Be one with the North Carolina outdoors! Roll up your sleeves and set up camp at Steele Creek Park & Campground. On top of the traditional picnics and bonfires, everyone can enjoy swimming, fishing, hiking and miniature golf. Make sure to go down the water slide before you leave!
Dust off your driver and tee off at the Silver Creek Golf Course. Enjoy a full 18 holes of fresh air and mountain views, then settle down for a good meal or drink at the clubhouse. Golfers who are still working on their swing need not to worry – a driving range and practice green are also available.
No trip to Morganton is complete without experiencing the calm, rolling waters of the Catawba River. The Outpost is where to get everything you need for your journey. Opt for a tube if you want to lay back and watch the blue skies and trees above as you drift. Otherwise, grab an oar and start rowing to wherever your heart desires on your kayak or canoe – just don’t get lost!
If the children are too young to fully enjoy the outdoors, take them to Bouncin’ Kids for some safe indoor fun. With open spaces to run around and enormous inflatables to explore, do not be surprised if they tire out soon after you leave. The one rule to remember is that socks are required!
