Activities include a little something for everyone like guided hikes, photography workshops, Land of Oz tours, parent-child golf outings, mountain biking, running races, concerts on the lawn, and movies under the stars in Eastern America's highest town.
"Modern life often pulls families in multiple directions. This is a great opportunity to gather everyone together and be a family again," says Brian Barnes, chairperson of the Beech Mountain Tourism Board.
A daily schedule of events and a Family Fun Month Participation card are available at www.FamilyFunMonth.com. Parents can go to the site, select the dates with their favorite activities, then book one of two special lodging packages.
The first package adds a complimentary third night to any two-night stay, while the second provides twenty five percent off a stay of at least five nights. Many of the activities are complimentary, such as the photography workshops, guided hikes, movies under the stars and swimming at Beech Mountain Club. Other activities have a nominal charge.
Beech Mountain is an ideal summer getaway for families. It blends the amenities and lodging of a ski resort town with miles of town-maintained hiking and biking trails. And it is within driving distance of Atlanta!
On weekends (Friday through Sunday) Beech Mountain Resort operates its downhill mountain biking park, complete with lift access for both riders and their bikes. The resort also offers disc golf and scenic chairlift rides to the summit, where a pub and observation deck await.
