This week, Travel & Leisure magazine published an article on Little Switzerland, NC, a mere 40 minutes north of The Enclave.
The article traces the town’s history to 1910, when a state Supreme Court justice saw the spot and started a resort.
At 3,500 feet elevation (The Enclave is ~1,200), the article reports, “Little Switzerland overlooks the region’s breathtaking valleys and mountains — including Mount Mitchell and the Black Mountains. Said to resemble the foothills of the Swiss Alps, these sweeping vistas are just one of the reasons travelers make the journey to experience the self-proclaimed “jewel of the Blue Ridge Parkway.”
