*What Voters Said:

Lewisburg, WV
"Autumn in Lewisburg is picturesque as the vibrant colors explode across the mountains! And the people are down-home quaint and full of hospitality! I fall in love every time we visit!" – Suesan Humphreys; Winchester, VA

"I really don't know why, but the minute I pull into this beautiful little historic town I am immediately happy. It is my favorite place ever." – Susie Albright; Charlotte, NC

Blowing Rock, NC
"Blowing Rock is a portal to another time. When you go there, it's like stepping back to 1930 - no one's in a hurry, you stop and enjoy an ice cream on a park bench, there's not a stranger to be found." – Sheri Moretz; Boone, NC

"Our favorite place to visit. We go there 2-3 times per year and just recently purchased a vacation/retirement place there. Truly a hidden gem in the mountains." – Deborah Summey; Folly Beach, SC

Floyd, VA
"Everyone you meet in Floyd acts like they are cousins from way back - there are no strangers! It's a real delight to be treated like family, even if it's only for a day." – Lorraine Covington; Clemmons, NC

"Floyd is a magical place. Where else can you enjoy a music festival as hip as Floydfest and enjoy a sweet treat at the local country store known for its live bluegrass shows all in the same day?" – Jennifer Bonds; Riner, VA
