Spend a day, a weekend, Christmas vacation, or the whole winter in Maggie Valley, North Carolina. You’ll never run out of exciting winter activities.
Christmas lights in Waynesville, here in Haywood County, are beautiful. The whole town is lit up, with all its quaint shops, street musicians and restaurants. Biltmore Estate in nearby Asheville (about 30 miles from Maggie Valley) offers a truly spectacular presentation at Christmas, with the estate lit up with thousands of twinkling lights and special tours.
Tube World and the Cataloochee Ski Area are popular during the winter with locals and tourists alike. If you’re hunting ‘real’ winter snow, you’re likely to find it in Maggie Valley during the winter, but if you don’t, take the scenic drive up to Newfound Gap and you will usually find it at this highest mountain peak.
