We are spending a week near downtown Highlands. We would like explore the area. Any suggestions on good places to go nearby?
I’m not sure what “nearby” means to you. Also, the first reply recommended places that were hours away. Let’s start over. Dry Falls is cool but the place is mobbed every day. There are a lot of folks here right now. Lesser known spots that are great....Silver Run Falls, Iron Bridge, Whitewater Falls, Gorges State Park, Panthertown. Within an hour are Brevard and Waynesville, nice little shops and places to eat. Also could try Blue Ridge Parkway. I wouldn’t go to Franklin ( no y) on a bet. Road down there is death defying.
