Lake Lure and neighboring Chimney Rock are big on small town charm and hospitality. They are quintessential small mountain towns located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The Rocky Broad River flows through the Hickory Nut Gorge and feeds Lake Lure. From boating, kayaking, hiking, biking, rock climbing, zip-lining, horseback riding, fishing, and golfing, there are outdoor activities to thrill all levels of enthusiasts. After a day full of play it is a picturesque place to sit back, relax, and enjoy the fresh mountain air from a number of outdoor restaurants with views of the lake, river and Chimney Rock State Park.
