Banner Elk is the Culinary Hot Spot You Should Visit This Weekend

You’ve got to eat on your leaf-peeping adventure, right?

This is the time of year to go see the leaves. Do it. Go. In the mountains, the trees are illuminated with so many vibrant reds, yellows and everything in between that you’ll work up an appetite from all the “oooh’ing” and “aaaah’ing.”

That’s good because the Town of Banner Elk has a front row seat to Mother Nature’s annual explosion of color, plus some of the best restaurants you’ll find anywhere in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Banner Elk holds the title of “Culinary Hot Spot of the High Country” and they’re proud of it.

You can take the family to a cozy mom & pop like Banner Elk Café or get dressed up for an elegant evening at Artisanal. Foodies and families are welcome.

We think the options are almost as impressive as the views.
