Going to the tail of the dragon

For our anniversary my wife and I are returning to N.C. where we spent our honeymoon ten years ago. I had never heard about the dragon before the first trip, but had a great time pushung our little civic hatch to it's limits. Well ten years later, I can hardly wait to drop the top and enjoy the ride. I am curious to know if anyone is familiar with the area that has any other roads near there that they would recommend?

My personal favorite is the skyway, but I would also checkout moon shiners run too. Diamond Back or Head I can never remember which it is is a little too far away. Where are you staying? I always stay at Fontana Lodge.

A fun thing to do besides drive while you're up there is to go zip lining. Plenty of courses around there and it's pretty inexpensive.
