If you’re ready for a one-of-a-kind getaway in the western North Carolina mountains, Jackson County is the place to start.

From epic hikes and mountain biking to whitewater rafting and top-rated fishing, Jackson County has a well-earned reputation as a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. But there’s even more to explore in our beautiful mountain towns of Cashiers, Cherokee, Dillsboro, and Sylva—like handmade pottery, unique Native American heritage, and award-winning dining experiences.

Jackson County also offers a range of adventures that only exist here! Catch the natural phenomenon of “Shadow of the Bear” around sunset in spring and fall. Stop by the eclectic American Museum of the House Cat. Or take a tour of locations where the Academy Award-winning Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri was filmed.

Plus, our year-round events calendar features experiences you simply can’t find anywhere else, like the hilarious Outhouse Races or annual Greening Up the Mountains Festival. From fall foliage to summer splashes, every change of season means new reasons to come back.
