Strolling through Downtown Belmont gives one the comforting notion of “the good old days,” yet offers restaurants, shopping, and a small arts & culture scene. Go antiquing, visit the kitschy, authentic general store, enjoy a delicious meal, and end the day with a latte and sweet treat.
Downtown isn’t the only area of Belmont worth exploring. Named in 1833, Belmont means “Beautiful Mountain,” which is spot-on considering the close proximity to Crowders Mountain, one of North Carolina’s most visited hiking destinations.
Small Town Comforts
Belmont is a glass bottle of Coca-Cola kind of town where, during warm summer months, you can find neighbors meeting on the grassy knoll, lawn chairs in-hand, to watch the train pass through town.
