Little Switzerland is an unincorporated community in McDowell and Mitchell counties of North Carolina, United States. Shop till you drop at Mast General Store and Birkdale Village. Birthplace of Country Music Museum and Linville Falls Winery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Sierra Nevada Brewing Company (in Mills River), Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site (in Flat Rock) and Christa's Country Corner (in Pineola). Spend the 29th (Sat) exploring nature at Kings Mountain National Military Park. Spend the 31st (Mon) exploring nature at Andrew Johnson National Historic Site. And it doesn't end there: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, look for gifts at My Best Friend's Barkery, explore and take pictures at Emerald Village, and learn about winemaking at Grandfather Vineyard & Winery.

For other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Little Switzerland sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airports are Asheville Regional Airport, Tri Cities Regional Tn Va Airport and Greenville Spartanburg International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 18°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
