Blessed with glorious Blue Ridge Mountain views in every direction, Black Mountain is rather like a scaled-down version of Asheville, its larger sibling some 15 miles to the west—meaning that it has a thriving arts scene, a downtown shopping district chockablock with art galleries, antique shops, bookstores and artist studios, and loads of recreational opportunities centered around scenic Lake Tomahawk. A favored summer activity is strolling along the shoreline in Lake Tomahawk Park while feeding ducks and admiring views of the Seven Sisters, a lineup of mountain peaks that do seem somehow related.
The Lake Eden Arts Festival, or LEAF, celebrates music, dance and performing arts in mid-May and again in mid-October at Camp Rockmont, 377 Lake Eden Rd. This multicultural festival offers a little bit of everything: poetry slams, healing arts, handicrafts, water recreation on Lake Eden, a kids' village and last but not least, music that ranges from gospel, Cajun and blues to reggae, bluegrass and New Orleans-style jazz. For schedule information phone (828) 686-8742.
