Families Flock to Beech Mountain for June Family Fun Month
Lodging specials include free nights and discounts of 20-25% off
Four years ago, Beech Mountain designated June as Family Fun Month with the idea of bringing families closer together via a daily schedule of activities and adventures.
The idea caught on. Parents, kids and grandparents now flock to Beech Mountain each June, where they choose from a long list of activities, as well as lodging specials.
There are activities available every day of the month, including: family hikes, scenic chairlift rides, mountain biking lessons, pickleball, disc golf, ride-along ATV tours, cookouts, movies under the stars and trips to nearby Grandfather Mountain and Tweetsie Railroad.
Month-long lodging specials make it even more enticing. Families who stay two nights in June receive a third night absolutely free, or they can opt for a 20% discount on two-night stays or a 25% discount on visits of five nights or more.
Many adventures are a short distance from lodging accommodations, such as hiking on town trails, biking in the Emerald Outback at the top of the mountain, canoeing and fishing at Buckeye Lake, parent/child golf outings, swimming at Beech Mountain Club, BOGO mini golf, and sunset concerts on the lawn.
“Family Fun Month is perfect for families who all too often postpone ‘together time,’” says Kate Gavenus, tourism director for the town of Beech Mountain. “We only get 18 summers with our children, so take time with the family while you can.”
Fitness-oriented families gravitate to the Cool 5 Race Weekend, June 16-18, which includes a challenging five-mile run, a shorter fun run, a and 1.5-mile “walk and wag” event for four-legged family members.
It’s easy to enjoy the cool outdoors of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Beech Mountain. As the highest town in eastern America, the average high temperature in June is just over 70 degrees.
