Mitchell County is well-known for its scenery. It is home to Roan Mountain, which has the largest naturally-occurring rhododendron gardens in the world. Bakersville is home to the North Carolina Rhododendron Festival in June, which is held at Bowman Middle School. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs along the southern sections of the county, with many places to stop off and admire the beautiful scenery of the area. Mitchell County is bounded by the highest peak east of the Mississippi River, Mount Mitchell, which is located in neighboring Yancey County and by one of the oldest mountains in the world, Grandfather Mountain, located in adjoining Avery County. The North Toe River flows through the county and joins with the South Toe at Toecane to form the Nolichucky River, one of the best whitewater rafting rivers in the eastern U.S.
Mitchell County is also known for its abundance of gems and minerals. The world-famous North Carolina Mineral and Gem Festival, one of the oldest festivals of its kind, is held in Spruce Pine each August. Rock hounds from around the world come to the region to explore the vast treasures.
