“Just outside the entrance of Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park is Chimney Rock Village. A quaint, quirky community full of friendly folks, the Village offers an eclectic array of shops and eateries, as well as campgrounds, motels and the historic Esmeralda Inn. Be sure to take time to meander down the Rocky Broad RiverWalk, a beautiful path that winds around the Rocky Broad River.” Quote from Chimney Rock Park.
Downtown Chimney Rock Village…
A quote from Chimney Rock Village
“Our quaint and quirky village welcomes you with its delightful assortment of hostelries, eateries, attractions, shops and services; the friendliness of the Villagers; the permanence of the mountains; and a state park with an entrance right on Main Street. Come linger awhile with us.”
A few photos from my walk through the village…
There is a Riverwalk. A short walk along the river. Photos coming soon.
If you find yourself in the Chimney Rock/Lake Lure area, I suggest you visit Chimney Rock Village. You could walk the one road through the center of town. Be sure and visit Chimney Rock State Park and walk the 500 plus stairs to the top. It is beautiful.
