North Carolina is truly a great place to get away from it all. Whether you choose to stay in a big city such as Charlotte or the low country near the beach, you can treat your family to a fun vacation. One place you can consider is staying is Sapphire, which has the nickname of Little Switzerland. This name comes from the tiny cottages and historic structures in the area that look like they came from Europe. If you are on the hunt for a place to stay that will make you feel vacation home comfortable, you'll want to search for a Sapphire timeshare.
What to do in Sapphire
The perfect Sapphire timeshare might be near the Sapphire Valley Resort, which offers fun activities such as footgolf where you kick a soccer ball around the green and to the hole. The resort also offers tubing, snowboarding and skiing in the winter. Gorges State Park is popular with visitors who like fishing because the park has both quiet and more active places where you can catch lunch or dinner.
Golfers will love both the Sapphire National Golf Club and Red Birds Golf Links. Both courses are open to the public and let you reserve a tee time online. There's also O.P. Taylor's, which is one of the largest and most unique toy stores in the country. Some of the other places you can visit from your Sapphire timeshare include Whitewater Falls, the Biltmore Estate, Great Smoky Mountains Park and Sliding Rock.
When to Visit
As Sapphire offers plenty of things to do during the cold and warm seasons, you may want to decide when to visit based on what you want to do and the weather that you like. Spring temperatures include average highs of 65 degrees Fahrenheit and average lows of 41 degrees Fahrenheit. Summer temperatures range from the mid-70s to the high 50s. During winters, temperatures in the city can drop to the low 20s and climb to the low 40s. Though fall temperatures can hit 60 degrees Fahrenheit or more, you'll still want to bring a jacket to stay warm.
