Continuing my tour of Famous North Carolina Mountains to visit we come to the second most famous Mountain of North Carolina but the the most visited one, Grandfather Mountain. Located near the town of Linville, NC, the mountain gets it`s name from the shape it makes, looking like the profile of an old man`s face. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs right along side it and one of its most spectacular views from that road is right next to Grandfather Mountain. Its main attraction though is its famous "Mile High Swinging Bridge" that connects two of its most rugged peaks. The mountain is also home to the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games which celebrate the rich Scottish history of the Scottish people who 1st settled in the area. It`s also home to an 18 hole Golf course and many tails, ranger stations, museums, visitor centers, picnic areas, overlooks, campgrounds, and several more attractions. So if you`re driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway you can`t miss having a stop at Grandfather Mountain. It`ll be one of your most memorable moments in your life!
