From Mountains to Beaches

After three months of solid school days, day after day after day, we finally had our spring break last week.  I had the opportunity to visit both the High Hampton Inn and Country Club in the mountains of Cashiers, North Carolina and then we headed to the beach and stayed at the Holiday Inn Club Vacations South Beach Resort in Myrtle Beach.

Whiteside Mountain – North Carolina

Highlands, North Carolina is known for its beautiful hiking. There are hikes of all lengths and levels. We traveled to the Cashiers area and spent four amazing days relaxing, hiking to waterfalls, and touring the Biltmore grounds. One of my favorite parts of the trip was our Whiteside Mountain hike. If you love to get out in nature and go hiking with your kids, Whiteside Mountain is perfect. We did not have kids yet, but we were traveling with friends who had a 3yo and an infant. Whiteside Mountain is a 2 mile hike that the website lists as moderate. If you are an avid hiker, this will be a nice and easy walk for you. Some spots might be challenging for those who do not hike often. The 3yo that we were hiking with walked almost the entire hike on his own. Our friends carried their infant in a front carrier.

The kids will love the many waterfalls that are found all over Cashiers and Highlands as well. Dry Falls is a great waterfall to see because it is easily accessible for families and part of the path goes behind the waterfall. The children will also like riding in the car as you drive under Bridal Veil Falls.
