|Maggie Valley is blessed with the ideal year-round climate,
beautiful mountain scenery and warm Southern hospitality. Proud of our
southern mountain heritage, we are building the future with a concern
for preserving the past. We are far enough south that spring comes pretty
early, bringing a fantastic display of natural blooming beauty to the
mountainsides as Dogwood, Redbud Trees and an amazing number of
wildflowers put on their show. Our summer heat is tempered by our cool
mountain elevations and evening temperatures drop to create some of the
most relaxing evening environments. In the fall our hardwood forests put
on a spectacular fall foliage color display attracting more visitors
than other time of the year. The winter brings a quiet, slower season
while providing us with some of the best skiing in the south.
