Last weekend to enjoy Dollar Days at Grandfather Mountain

Saturday’s forecast is calling for sunshine in the High Country. Take the family to Grandfather Mountain. December is Dollar Days for local residents in and around the High Country. Through December 31, anyone who lives or works in Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Mitchell, Watauga or Wilkes counties will be admitted to the mountain for only $3 per person, with proof of local employment or residency.

In lieu of cash, Grandfather Mountain also will accept three cans of food from local residents for distribution to local food pantries. Christmas tree discounts may not be combined with Dollar Days discounts.

Park Hours: 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
