What To Do in Summer: The Beech Mountain area offers plenty for Summer Travelers. Buckeye Recreation Center has cool playgrounds for the kids, a state of the art work out facility, nature preserve, walking track and fishing. A lap around the track feels like you are walking in the clouds!

Beech Mountain Golf Course is a short drive away. Whitewater rafting on the French Broad, or tubing in nearby Todd.

Nearby Grandfather Mountain offers wonderful hiking and many outdoor adventures.

What To Do in the Winter: SKI, SKI, and more SKI (or snowboard)!! Being the highest town in the Eastern United States, Beech Mountain has plenty of trails for the snow enthusiast. From black diamonds to the bunny slope (with plenty of instructors) Ski Beech has something for everyone. If skiing isn't your thing, check out the ice skating rink or just sip hot chocolate from any of the restaurants in the ski village and watch the fun!

Separate slopes for sledding (ages 12 and under) and tubing are located at the town center.
