We are now planning a trip in Oct from the NC coast ( Calabash ), that we originally planned for June.
My husband has since lost his job, so would like suggestions for CLEAN reasonable lodging.
We'd like to spend 4 nights and include:
Grandfather Mtn / Blowing Rock
Linville & nearby waterfalls
Gorges State Park & nearby waterfalls
Sunset boat tour on Lake Lure ??? not sure
We are not big hikers, but like to take LOTS of photos.
Would we be better off staying in Asheville and doing day trips from there, or splitting our trip into different segments with a hotel in each area ?
If you think the second option is the best....please suggest some division of sights and hotels/restaurants in the area. Also, has anyone gone to see the elk near Cove Creek ? Is it worth the trip ???
Any and all help and suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks so much.
