In our modern era of social media, video games, cell phones and 24-7 television, finding a way to take a break from it all and relax is getting difficult. Family vacations should be a time to unplug and reconnect with the people we love. Finding the right location to make our escape isn't always easy or affordable, but I've found a mountain resort designed with families in mind.
Fontana Village Resort in Western North Carolina is situated in the Nantahala National Forest at the gateway of the Smoky Mountains. With its breath taking views and unspoiled beauty, it's no wonder the resort has been a perennial favorite year-round vacation destination.
The mountain-top retreat features an array of activities and accommodations attracting travelers from all over the country and around the world. Visitors to the resort include; hikers, anglers, car enthusiasts, business people, cyclists and nature lovers. But its rustic setting and laid-back locale gives the resort a special charm and appeal to families looking to get away from it all.
