Chimney Rock’s iconic 315-foot rocky spire provides panoramic views of Hickory Nut Gorge and Lake Lure. Chimney Rock became an official NC State Park in 2006 after being under the care of Dr. Lucius B. Morse of Missouri and his family since 1902. #VacationNC #chimneyrockNC https://t.co/ONpqeDPpnL

Let’s go fishing! #VacationNC Croatan Sound is one of the smaller sounds in the Outer Banks but also one of the deepest. It began as a swamp but formed into a larger body of water as the Roanoke Inlet naturally shifted and closed.

Today for #VacationNC we take in the views at Lake Junaluska, N.C. in Haywood Co. The lake has strong ties to the Methodist church going back to 1913 when the Second General Missionary Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South visited before the lake was even filled. https://t.co/wPyDYEHOBD

This week’s #VacationNC takes us to some local watering holes.

First stop, Lake Susan at Montreat, NC. This lake was a popular locale for visitors especially in the early 1900s. Stunt Day brought visitors from all around to this man made lake each year.
