VIDEO: An Afternoon in Black Mountain, NC

Black Mountain Hey Hey Cupcake

It's less than a 20-minute drive from downtown Asheville to Black Mountain, recently named the Prettiest Small Town in America by readers of TripAdvisor. Black Mountain is known for its charm and its hospitality. With its top-notch restaurants, unique shops, and stunning mountain scenery, it's no wonder "The Little Town that Rocks" is a favorite destination for visitors and locals alike.

We recently spent the day in Black Mountain, strolling the shops, restaurants, galleries, and parks. Along the way, we created a photo/video Instagram story for the Visit Asheville Instagram account to give you a quick tour of this beautiful town.
