The United States is full of stunning mountain ranges. What better way to explore them than spending time in one of these charming mountain towns?


Asheville, North Carolina
Asheville is nestled between several mountains, including the Great Smokey Mountains and Mount Mitchell. The location is ideal for hiking, mountain biking and plenty of other outdoor activities. The city is also known for its thriving beer scene and vibrant cultural offerings.


Lake Placid, New York
Lake Placid is located near the lake of the same name in New York’s Adirondack Mountains. The village played host to the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games. Naturally, the village is a great spot for winter sport enthusiasts. To learn more about the Olympic host, stop by the Lake Placid Olympic Museum during your visit.


Park City, Utah
Located east of the equally popular winter sport destination of Salt Lake City, Park City is a must-visit spot in Utah. The Utah Olympic Park Track used during the 2002 Winter Olympic Games is located in Park City. The city is also home to the Sundance Film Festival, the largest independent film festival in the United States.


Telluride, Colorado
There is no shortage of spectacular mountain towns in Colorado. Telluride offers something for everyone. Take part in activities like skiing during the colder months and golfing in the warmer months. The charming Old Town is perfect for a casual stroll with the mountains in the background. Get an even closer look by riding a gondola up the mountain.
