Take a step back in time with a visit to the quaint Chimney Rock Village. This friendly community sits in a 14-mile, 1,800-feet deep pristine gorge, is a hikers’ and birdwatchers’ paradise, and attracts outdoor adventurers and nature enthusiasts from around the world. The Village is known for some of the most spectacular mountain and river views in the Eastern United States.
Chimney Rock has a bustling downtown where nature and commerce converge. Stop in for a meal at several of the independently-owned, one-of-a-kind restaurants, many of which offer outdoor seating with stunning views overlooking the river and are pet friendly.
A river walk path adjacent to Main Street winds along the banks of the beautiful Rocky Broad River and is a favorite place for peaceful strolls. The shopping is equally gratifying. Independent shops are stocked with handcrafted and unique gifts ranging from the whimsical to the practical.
The Village boasts award-winning lodging that includes rustic cabin hideaways, mountain motels, and charming B&Bs. Plan your visit around a music event or outdoor movie night at the Gathering Place with cool breathtaking views of the Chimney and Hickory Nut Falls.
Chimney Rock Park features outdoor concerts throughout the year.
