    Little Switzerland embodies what western North Carolina is all about.  Sweeping mountain fews, abundant foliage, pleasant temperatures, numerous natural attractions, plus the Blue Ridge Parkway!

    Little Switzerland, began as a summer resort in 1910, was named because of its sweeping panoramas of deep valleys and distant ranges resembling those of the foothills of the Swiss Alps. Ride along Highway 226A along the 3,500-ft. ridge to see some of these vistas.
