The Lake Lure Flowering Bridge, once a bustling thoroughfare, is home to an eclectic variety of flowers and plants that pays homage to western North Carolina’s natural flora. This historic bridge built in 1925 was reclassified as a pedestrian walkway in 2011 when a new bridge was opened to traffic.

The Lake Lure Inn was built in 1927 after the river nearby was dammed, creating a lake in the Hickory Nut Gorge. Famous writers and actors, presidents, and WWII soldiers have all graced the halls of this enormous 90-year old hotel, creating a long-lasting legacy of comfort. It remains a time capsule of the 1920’s and 1930’s.
