Lake Lure seems to have been left in the past. From the lakeside beach and cottages to the grand Inns, it looks probably just like it did in the 50s.
One of my favorite features was the Lake Lure Flowering Bridge. Spanning a small cut off of Lake Lure, the entire bridge has been made into a garden. And what a garden! Manned strictly by volunteers and relying solely on donations, this bridge is a walk into a fairytale garden.
Life is simply good.
