Mountain Play Lodge

Reviewed By RAM525 - Hend

Well, I can no longer fully recommend this place. It is a great play place for children. But why would you sell alcohol in a little children's place??? Why? It isn't the place for that whether you drink or not, that is just wrong!!!!!!
Why would you sell something you can't sell to the children this place was built for????

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Tours & Tastings

We brewed our first batch of beer in 1980 in Chico, California, the lush forests of North Carolina far from our mind. Over three decades, folks tried our bold beers and deemed them fit for friends across the country. In time a second brewery became the wisest, most sustainable way to send fresh beer to the farthest reaches. Today you can venture inside our Mills River brewery to trace our history as a craft beer pioneer and see first-hand our drive to make flavorful beer the status quo. Cruise up our wooded driveway, park under a solar-panel canopy, and head behind the scenes with us. Our tours fill up quickly! You must make reservations online for all tours except the Guided Tasting and the self-guided Visitor Corridor. Click below to check availability and book your tour. Please feel free to contact our Tour Desk before your visit if you have any questions about our tour programs or policies.

Blue Ghost Brewing Company

Reviewed By Madeit2Ireland - North Carolina Mountains, North Carolina

This is an update on my first review of Blue Ghost. Everything I said still pretty much stands but I am agreeing with some of the other reviewers about children sometimes overrunning the place. I have mixed feelings on this issue. After living in Ireland where people often bring their kids to the pubs FOR A MEAL, I think it is fine this is allowed. However, in Ireland the children are very well-behaved and most definitely are not allowed to run loose in the pub. Here, that doesn't seem to be the case with some families. And I always wonder if there's a designated driver. There's just something about seeing people drinking while their children run around, babies crying when the hour is beyond when they should be home in bed, that doesn't feel right and is uncomfortable for me. I think limiting hours/days when children can be present would be a huge improvement. Seems it would be better if those who wish to party with their kids would confine it to home. (Nothing against kids - or those adults who have A beer with kids in tow - just a general observation/opinion.)

Launch is a family friendly activity that lets everyone create memories together. The whole family can come jump, play dodge-ball, or even complete the obstacle course!

The kids had a great time. Well kept and clean. I just don't understand why grown men are allowed to jump with the kids with shoes on. I mean really. It's supposed to be fun for the kids not some strange competition with grown men.

WNC Agricultural Center

Reviewed By Rod L

Very nice opening day. Not quite 100 percent yet, but there was not over crowding and the the people were super friendly. Clean, easy to get around and good food. Lots of rides and the animals appeared content. Worth a trip any year. Handicapped parking is extremely limited and the courtesy golf carts we're really not paying close attention but most worked just great.
