Your family probably doesn’t need much coaching to come up with fun outdoor activities in the winter, but there is one that never fails to excite everyone: searching for the perfect Christmas tree! It is even more exciting when you head to a place where you can choose and cut your own. A hands-on approach like this has multiple benefits, including a bit of exercise as you walk around looking for the perfect tree and having the freshest tree possible. In addition, you know you have a local tree instead of one that was transported across the country.
There are several options for family activities when you visit Lenoir & the NC foothills, including several Christmas tree farms in Watauga County, such as:
- C & J Christmas Trees– Located at 1999 Brookshire Road in Boone, this farm has Fraser fir Christmas trees that are priced by the foot from base to tip. You’ll find everything from tabletop sizes to 9-foot-tall trees! They also have wreaths available while they last.
- Circle C Tree Farms– Located at 374 Will Cook Road in Boone, this farm has trees from 3 to 11 feet tall, as well as fresh wreaths.
You can even combine other family activities with your quest for the perfect Christmas tree. Make a day of it with a scenic drive and other family fun, and perhaps even some shopping. Whether you are new to the area, just passing through, or have lived here for years, you will never run out of things to see and do in the Lenoir, North Carolina area!
