My wife and I are going to Sapphire Valley Resort in N.C. in a few weeks to explore the area and I was wondering if anyone here could suggest some places of interest to visit while we're there. Sometimes your better off going by word of mouth than listening to chambers of commerce or travel guides. We're hoping to do some hiking and hit alot of back roads so we can see what only the locals see. Any suggestions you could send our way will be greatly appreciated. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
