Maggie Valley is situated in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina.
At the valley floor the elevation is 3200 feet, making the valley a true four season destination. The climate is more closely associated with Northern New England than the south, making the valley a great place to vacation. The surrounding peaks rise to above 5000 feet offering great senic views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. The higher you go the cooler it gets, losing on average 8 degrees per 1000 feet. While areas like Gatlinburg and Asheville endure the summers heat of the south, the valley is often a much cooler place to be. The altitude also provides a great place for winter sports like snow skiing and snow tubing at Cataloochee Ski Area. Cataloochee is known for its ability to make snow as the temperatures drop and for being one of the first ski resorts to open each year on the east coast.
Wheels Through Time is open year round with one of the largest collections of antique motorcycles in the country and most of them run.
Maggie Valley is also a great place to find a second home for those wishing to escape the heat of the south. Our Real Estate Agents can help find that perfect place in the Great Smoky Mountains.
