    This experience was absolutely excellent! Very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. My 2 year old had a blast! It is in a beautiful downtown area and is indoor which was perfect for the cold November day! June helped us through the whole process and made it a great experience!

    Stopped here for a quick look and enjoyed it. Just a short walk from the parking lot takes you to an overlook to view the waterfall. The parking lot is at the realtor next to the neighborhood. Definitely worth the stop if you’re in the area.

    Hiked many trails on many continents and this is my favorite trail of the Appalachians. Good water access for backpacking, great views (probably the best views on the blue ridge) on the balds. Good history at Cold Mountain. Also easy access to graveyard fields.

    A cornucopia of artifacts and memorabilia from World War I and all later American wars. Displays newspaper front pages from many momentous military dates. Organized and run entirely by volunteers. Helps one better appreciate the sacrifices made by so many in the service.

    We selected Slick Rock Falls from a brochure that included waterfalls in Transylvania County. Slick Rock Falls are very nice and you can "carefully" stand behind the Falls. There is a short trail to the Falls as on our visit it was barely visible from the road. I carefully got behind the Falls a bit for a pic and enjoyed the spray of the cool water.
    Note:
    Since we took FS475B to Log Hollow Falls we thought we would continue on it to Slick Rock Falls which is also off FS475B. We do NOT recommend that unless you are going on long hikes in the area. FS475B is a one lane narrow gravel road that twists and turns through Pisgah Forest. It is a TEDIOUS drive. If we were stopping other places along the road it would be different but not just to get to Slick Rock Falls. Easiest way to Slick Rock Falls is off US276 take FS475 about 1.5 miles then turn right onto FS475B over a mile to the Falls.

    Brevard rolls up the sidewalks at night. Nothing open really after about 5-6. We were aiming to have dinner at “Square Root”, but had a 1 hour wait. Decided to walk while we waited and found Brevard Brewing Company open. Bar attendant was knowledgeable and kind! Not pushy and answered all our questions. We tried a seasonal, dark lager, and the IPA. All were great and true to what they were brewed to taste like! Nothing flashy here which we appreciated. Some in our party played chess and the others battleship while we enjoyed our brew. If we lived closer, we would return. If you’re in town, this is certainly worth a visit.

    This is a well maintained mansion given to Transylvania County by the Sliversteins a prominent family in the early 1900's. House includes a museum with period furniture. Grounds are cool, shaded, short walk from courthouse, walking trail accesible to anyone and a great playground for the kids.

    Lovely little market. The vendors were all in costume. Only wish they sold beverages to match the chilly weather but there are coffee shops nearby.

    I wanted to buy everything! Fresh baked pastries, cheeses, jellies, eggs, prepared meals. I wish everything wasn’t so expensive but I have no buyers remorse.

    This is a short hike that is easy to do but I would caution everyone to read about how to get there, where to park, and what to walk before going. It is not well marked and you will have no signal once there.

    Good place to unwind from the day shopping or paying bills. Restful and a little bit of peace in the busy city.

    Stopped at this overlook while traveling on the Blue Ridge Parkway and really thought it was beautiful. There was plenty of parking when we drove up. The views are beautiful and you can see for miles on a clear day.

    At the intersection of Main St and Broad St is an atypical but stately courthouse building. There was a metal sculpture of an elk beside the huge conifer with lovely long cones.

    This place is a fun experience for kids. Very rustic and the poles are very worn so it’s better to bring your own! Lady working there is friendly. We caught 10 lbs and had them filleted. Obviously not actually fishing, but quick fun for kids!

    This is a treat to visit with obvious love and care applied by many volunteers local to the Brevard, NC community. We went to see the aluminum Christmas tree exhibit and enjoyed a delightful trip down memory lane. Deb McConaghy, gave us a tour filled with humorous anecdotes and surprising facts about the numerous displays. A really fun experience!
