Dirty Dancing sights

We will be in the area the week of the fourth of July. I'm a huge Dirty Dancing fan and wanted to see if anyone had information on where to go to see movie film locations or anything else the area has to offer. We'll probably just drive down for the day.

Thank you!

It's a shame you are not coming for the Dirty Dancing Festival in August - it's fabulous. Anyway, here are some websites to look at. (Mountain Lake Hotel).. Also, I hope you know that some scenes were not filmed there..

Thanks, Sophie. I know, I am bummed that we won't be there during that time. I think maybe that's a trip with my sister someday. Hubby seems less than thrilled. :) I mainly wanted to see the lake, but wasn't sure what else was around.

Thank you!

Ah, yes, I remember that the hotel was in Virginia. I'm not sure if we'll make the drive down for just the lake or not. Thank you!

I grew up going to Lake Lure, and when I saw the movie, I immediately recognized the scenes that were filmed there. It made me so happy!

We got to see 3 of the locations of the Dirty Dancing movie location. 16th. hole on the golf course at the Rumbling Bald Mountain Resort, and the place where they had to shoot the lift. On the Scenic Tour of Lake Lure, they showed you the steps where Baby carried the watermelon.
