Summer Activities at Beech Mountain Resort

The town of Beech Mountain has added a new blog, hosted by Boomer the squirrel, and his first bSUMMER-Boomer-JPEG-180x300log is all about the Top 7 Summer Activities at Beech Mountain Resort! Boomer is the nickname given to the native squirrels on Beech Mountain. Instead of a boring human blogger, the town of Beech Mountain secured Boomer the Squirrel as the blogger. He works for peanuts! Boomer’s goal is to educate humans on all of the wonderful activities and events that are available on Beech Mountain. Click here to see the blog by Boomer!
