Welcome to Black Mountain & the Swannanoa Valley
828-669-2300201 E. State Street Black Mountain, NC 28711
Spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains surround our beautiful town and valley. If you are seeking a community to relocate your business, begin a new adventure, retire, or even begin a family – Black Mountain and the Swannanoa Valley will be a perfect choice for you.
SafeWise has named Black Mountain “one of the 50 safest towns in North Carolina,” and the Asheville Citizen-Times newspaper voted us “Best Small Town in Western North Carolina”. We are nationally recognized for our arts, handmade crafts, furniture, local food markets, and music. The town and chamber has worked together for many years to also create our “Entrepreneurial Friendly Community” as well.
More than 30 area restaurants offer a wide variety of menus, including everything from hearty soup and sandwiches to BBQ and ribs, mountain trout, and authentic ethnic cuisine. Relax in a historic inn, B & B, remote mountain cabin, or a modern hotel.
Our community and valley offers walking, hiking, biking trails, greenways, camping areas, trout fishing, area lakes and waterfalls. Enjoy the crisp, clear running mountain streams and natural flora.
Make your first stop our Visitor’s Center, located at 201 East State Street, and one of our friendly volunteers will enthusiastically assist you with any questions you may have about our area. We hope to see you soon!
