Mountain Region of North Carolina
The Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina
The 828 Area Code region contains the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains, one of the most beautiful regions in the world. It is home to Mount Mitchell, which at an elevation of 6,684 ft, is the highest peak in the eastern part of the United States. The Western North Carolina landscape is jam packed with waterfalls. In fact, Whitewater Falls, located about 6 miles outside Asheville, is the highest waterfall east of the Rockies, falling 811 ft. There are waterfalls you can walk under and even drive under.
The mountain communities of the 828 area code are very popular destinations for year round activities like skiing, hunting, hiking, boating, fishing, and many other outdoor activities.
