Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina is the charmingly rustic small town of Lansing, NC. At the turn of the century, it survived as a boomtown on the Norfolk and Western Railroad and along with Todd and West Jefferson it was a town through which the Virginia Creeper passed.
This small town has become a prime travel destination in Ashe County. No matter the season, Lansing offers unforgettable landscape and scenery, year-round festivals and incredible outdoor recreation opportunities. The quaint downtown offers a variety of interesting and unique shops filled with local arts and crafts, antiques and household goods. The shopkeepers enjoy every opportunity to welcome you to the area, and direct you to any goods and services you may seek during your stay. Lansing also offers several eateries along the way, from old fashioned country cooking to fresh hand tossed pizza.
Lansing is about 20 minutes from Jefferson and West Jefferson, and only 45 minutes from Boone, NC and is less than an hour from Abingdon, VA or Mountain City, TN.
