The view from Chimney Rock is one of the best views in Western North Carolina. The more adventurous of us climbed 499 steps up to Chimney Rock, while the rest of us enjoyed a 32 second elevator ride. After enjoying the breath-taking view (and some ice cream) we headed to the Great Woodland Adventure to see some mountain critters and walk an educational trail. When asked what her favorite part of the day was, my 9-year-old niece replied “the heights.” This Asheville Area Attraction is located just 17 miles from The Cove at Fairview.
