The Land of Oz is a theme park nestled on the side of Beech Mountain in North Carolina. Originally opened in 1970, the park operated for ten years before closing in 1980. More recently, the park has started opening a few times a year, offering tours on Fridays in June, and the first weekend in October. Although many of the park’s original features are gone, visitors can still walk the yellow brick road, visit Dorathy’s house, meet characters from the movie, and enjoy amazing views from Beech Mountain. The park also offers private tours, parties, and overnight rentals year round.
I visited in October for the Autumn at Oz festival , and the foliage mixed with the whimsy of Land of Oz made for an amazing unique experience. Go to emeraldmtn.com to plan your own visit
