Beech Mountain, North Carolina 

The town of Beech Mountain NC, originally begun as a private resort development in the mid 1960's and incorporated in 1981, is today known for its world-famous ski resort, Beech Mountain Resort, as well as its cool summer weather where temperatures rarely get above 72 degrees.   Located in the northeast section of the Western North Carolina mountains, upscale Beech Mountain is the highest in elevation of all towns in the northeastern United States at 5,506 feet above sea level. Offering a nice selection of  stores and restaurants, as well as a large choice of outdoor sports, Beech Mountain is a year-round destination. When October rolls around,  Beech Mountain magically transform into the Land of Oz  in their annual Autumn at Oz Festival, complete with all your favorite people and places from Frank Baumís silver screen classic.
