Welcome to Black Mountain & Swannanoa Valley

Welcome to Black Mountain
The Little Town That Rocks!

 

Sponsor

Previously called the Front Porch of Western North Carolina, spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains surround our beautiful town and valley… If you are seeking a community to relocate your business, begin a new adventure, retire, or even begin a family – Black Mountain and the Swannanoa Valley will be a perfect choice for you…

SafeWise has named Black Mountain “one of the 50 safest towns in North Carolina,” and the Asheville Citizen-Times newspaper voted us “Best Small Town in Western North Carolina…” We are nationally recognized for our arts, handmade crafts, furniture, local food markets, and music… The town and chamber has worked together for many years to also create our “Entrepreneurial Friendly Community” as well…

More than 30 area restaurants offer a wide variety of menus, including everything from hearty soup and sandwiches to BBQ and ribs, mountain trout, and authentic ethnic cuisine… Relax in a historic inn, B&B, remote mountain cabin, or a modern hotel

Our community and valley offers walking, hiking, biking trails, green ways, camping areas, trout fishing, area lakes and waterfalls… Enjoy the crisp, clear running mountain streams and natural flora… “The Valley” is also home to six major Conference Centers, two colleges, and over a several ¬†widely recognized camps

Check out the Chamber’s community calendar of events. Here you will find important dates about festivals, seasonal and yearly celebrations, marathons, and other fun activities offered throughout the year…

Make your first stop our Visitor’s Center, located at 201 East State Street, and one of our friendly volunteers will enthusiastically assist you with any questions you may have about our area… We hope to see you soon!
