This is real life y’all.
Tucked away in the foothills of the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains is a lake called Lake Lure. Lake Lure was one of the film locations of the cult film Dirty Dancing. On the one edge of the lake there is a genuine beach. It’s completely bizarre to see in person. The scene of folks entering the beach is just like that at the beach at the coast, but with mountains and the beach accesses a lake and not the ocean.
I knew there was a “beach” at Lake Lure, but I need knew how legit it was. Next year I plan to go there often.
Bizzarre, but awesome.
