Top Outdoor Activities in Murphy

A trip to North Carolina will take your family onto a journey of outdoor adventure and historic appeal. For families staying in Western Carolina, there are a ton of activities around and in Murphy NC, whether you want to get out in nature or just see it from the comfort of your own vehicle. Here are our top three outdoor activities for your next mountain vacation.

1. Take a drive through the mountains.

Tucked away in the mountains, one of the best things to do in Murphy is hop in the car, roll down your windows and take a back road. Only a short drive from from the Blue Ridge Parkway, any family can enjoy nature with a long drive through the prettiest area in the country.

2. Take a nature walk.

The Murphy River Walk is often described as a small town oasis, with its bridges and elevated walkways. During the spring and summer months, the well-maintained paths have colorful foliage, making it the perfect spot for a quick family photo.

3. Take a train ride.

With 53 miles of track, the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad is a tribute to times gone by. The Railroad offers scenic excursions that range from 3.5 hours to a full day of adventure. Though you’ll be safely tucked away in a car, your family can enjoy some of the most amazing mountain and valley views around.
