I second Lake Powatan. There is a pier and a swimming beach.

Plus then you can go to Celebrity's hot dogs down the road for lunch.

As for other things to do

day trip to Mount Mitchell, the state high point

day trip to the Pisgah Forest trout hatchery

#1 overlooked Western NC attraction in my opinion is Andrews geyser. Just a few miles from the Old Fort exit at the bottom of Black Mountain, a GREAT picnic spot! (if happen to be traveling through at the right time for a picnic.) and the kids love it if you happen to be ther when a train comes through and circles the valley.

Mount Mitchell is good! if you are tooling around on the Parkway the Gem and Mineral Museum near Spruce Pine is worth a visit.

the Folk Art Center! in entertaining even for little ones. http://www.blueridgeparkway.org/v.php?pg=235

You could take them to Salsa and let them see you get insulted by the wait staff with their bad service, bad attitude, and sometimes bad upset stomach afterwards. . Think of it as an educational experience. LOL :rolleyes:
