Family Month

June is Family Fun Month on Beech Mtn

June is “Family Fun Month” with 30 days of family activities (see calendar below), plus discount lodging specials like buy three nights, get a fourth night free. When was the last time your family enjoyed a hike together, played in a creek, rode mountain bikes, or watched a movie under the stars? On Beech Mountain, the pace is slower, the air is cooler, the locals are friendlier, and families are welcome to relax and take a real break from the outside world. All this and more awaits you this June in Eastern America’s Highest Town. Arranging visits is easy. Check the calendar below, pick your dates, then select your preferred Family Fun Month lodging special. Beech Mountain offers everthing from condos and cabins to chalets and rental homes. There’s also a nice selection of quaint mountain inns. Tours of the old Land of Oz theme park are offered throughout the day each Thursday and Friday in June, plust the last Wednesday in June, but get your tickets in advance at www.landofoznc.com since they sell out early.
