Local Communities

Watauga County, and other neighboring counties and communities across the North Carolina High Country, is not only comprised of a diverse physical landscape but the communities and people who live in them represent an even greater element of diversity.

Community pride and loyalty to family traditions like Christmas Tree Farming runs deep in certain areas while part-time seasonal residents help form the character of other communities.

First-time visitors and returning folks alike will always find events and major attractions in the area from the exciting peaks of Grandfather Mountainto the bustling valley of Boone and Appalachian State University.

We invite you to take the time to get to know each of our local communities throughout Watauga County and beyond with their own unique qualities and characteristics.
