Sunset Mountain in Asheville, North Carolina
The Blue Ridge Mountains beckon with alluring scenery, sure, but you’ll really be blown away when the dramatic landscapes are illuminated by bursts of Independence Day color. To earn this reward, hike a 1.5 mile trail to the peak of Sunset Mountain starting at 6:00pm, departing from the Swannanoa Valley Museum. After a traditional watermelon-cutting and sunset viewing, take in the fireworks that cascade over the town of Black Mountain, North Carolina. The group outing runs $50 for non-members and $35 for members of the museum, and is led by individuals who will share the history and vintage photographs of the valley. BYO picnic, water, and folding chairs and let mother nature take care of the rest.
