Highlands, North Carolina

Highlands, North Carolina has served as a showcase for the change of seasons for many families in the Southeastern United States for well over a century. A caravan of cars drives through the historic Main Street district during the summer months to enjoy the mild temperatures of the high elevations, and during the fall months to gaze in awe at the show of colors as the leaves change on the hardwood trees that line the mountain range. Downtown Highlands is a collection of quaint inns, upscale shops and renowned eateries that serve as a draw for vacationers from nearby South Carolina and Georgia.

The collection of country clubs in the Highlands is as widely varied as the collection of lush foliage. Thoughtfully designed golf courses abound, coexisting beautifully with the natural splendor that is synonymous with the area. Many of the luxury cottages and mountain estates in the area complement the natural setting on which they are constructed, featuring heavy timber and stone accents and offering awe-inspiring views of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Year round residents of Highlands live at an easier pace – they know when to pause and take a gander at a beautiful sunset or to stop and smell the wildflowers. We invite you to slow down long enough to experience the Highlands way of life.
