You Got to Just Love Lake Lure!

You Got to Just Love Lake Lure!

By Russ Meade

I hope that you have seen from these pages that I love the Town of Lake Lure, NC!

This tiny town tucked into the Blue Ridge Mountains is truly unique in all the world.

I was asked one time why I love living here so I thought I would add some reasons.

Add yours in the comment section if desired!

Only in Lake Lure, do:

We have a beautiful, safe environment where your neighbors are true friends!

We have a sparkling, clean lake that is the center of all summer activities.


We have only the second in the US of a bridge that is flowering! See:
