FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 22, 2021
‘Dollar Days’ begin April 1 at Grandfather Mountain
Grandfather Mountain will open its gates to High Country residents, employees and their guests
for only $3 each April 1-23, as the park’s “Dollar Days” promotion returns in time for spring.
The promotion allows anyone who lives or works in Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Mitchell, Watauga

Due to COVID-19, however, Dollar Days guests must book their visit online at

Days ticketholder must present verification of local residence or employment. If the ticketholder

The Dollar Days rate cannot be combined with other discounts or offers. Due to state occupancy

organization that owns and operates the Linville, N.C., nature park.
