I am an NC native and visited Grandfather Mountain many times as a child but always in the summer. I just visited again for the first time in nearly 25 years with my father, husband and two kids. My husband and two children had not visited before. The attraction has been updated with a nature museum and new Top Shop at the peak. The most exciting part, by far is the drive up to the peak and the Mile High Swinging Bridge. While my husband described crossing the bridge as "terrifying" (he doesn't like heights), my 10 year old daughter and 70 year old father described it as "exciting". It was certainly more thrilling crossing in the late fall with 12 mph winds than in the summer! Definitely worth a visit.
