Black Mountain's "off season" is typically the months of January - April when tourist traffic is down and business is slow. Creative Mountain Food Tours; in its first year of business, decided to challenge the "off season" by offering tours during this time to help stimulate the economy. The result: 8 tours; 100 guests representing 15 states and 11 cities in NC! 100% of our guests loved Black Mountain, shopped and ate during their stay and ensured us that they will return.
A new business is opening in Black Mountain that’s geared to foodies and history buffs of both the local and tourist variety: Creative Mountain Food Tours, owned by McDowell County residents Len and Sandi Eskew, will offer three themed tours that allow participants to do small-plate tastings at at least five restaurants, pubs and breweries while burning off those calories strolling through Black Mountain’s picturesque downtown.
There’s a new company in Black Mountain that will help locals and tourists alike discover the drinks, dishes, and culture that local restaurants have to offer.
