Not only was it a good place to enjoy some cool mountain air, but also a great place to celebrate Independence Day.
This is one of the High Country’s premier Independence Day celebrations, and is a joint effort from the Chamber of Commerce, Town of Beech Mountain and Beech Mountain Volunteer Firemen.

The evening concluded with a spectacular professional fireworks display.
