Activities & Interests
Heritage Tours and Group Receptive Services
The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area Partnership wants you to explore our beautiful region--the mountains and foothills of Western North Carolina. We've got the experience and first-hand knowledge of the region to make your trip rewarding and memorable!
We work with tour operators, colleges, museums and other organizations to design itineraries. Our customized trips will get you off the beaten path and into some amazing small towns and less visited places. Some are natural attractions, others man-made. There is the opportunity for musical performances, craft lessons, Cherokee exploration and more! Let us plan your trip for senior adults, church groups, student groups, bank travel, and others. Contact Amy Hollifield, 828-298-5330, ext. 303, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
