The Blue Ridge Mountains, named because of their blue colour when looked at from afar, are one of the defining features of the North Carolina landscape. These mountains will provide you with all you need for a true mountain getaway, and in the bloom of summer, they will really come alive. Watch the explosion of colour in the wildflower meadows; see the greenery of the forests come alive; enjoy the balmy waters of the waterfalls and waterways; and hike trails to clear viewpoints lit up by the sun. With two national parks contained in these mountains: Great Smoky Mountain National Park and Shenandoah National Park, there are miles of fun and adventure to be had. Complete a great trip with these Memorial Day cabins in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and let nature do the rest.
