Asheville is that type of unique, special place that lingers sweetly in your mind and memories for years to come. The city's rich architectural legacy with its mix of Art Deco, Beaux Arts and Neoclassical styles is the perfect retro-urban backdrop to the edgy energy that emanates from the locally owned-shops and art galleries, distinctive restaurants and exciting entertainment venues.
A bastion of cutting-edge art and technology in the Blue Ridge, the city also prides itself on its fascinating Appalachian past and celebrates this culture with annual events such as Shindig on the Green. While many cities underwent major overhauls in past decades, Asheville's historic and architecturally diverse downtown remains beautifully preserved.
Cradled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Brevard is a cozy town filled with tremendous cultural and natural opportunities. Visitors from around the globe come to partake in our many music festivals, waterfalls, and cycling trails. Which past-time will bring you to us?
We know how to throw a party. Brevard plays host to six fantastic festivals and three cycling events annually. Pick one of these events if you need an excuse to visit. Of course, we’re just as much fun every other day of the year. Either way, we know you’ll be hooked.
Some of North Carolina’s most dramatic mountain scenery is found at Chimney Rock State Park, with the signature 315-foot spire overlooking Hickory Nut Gorge and Lake Lure. Admission is charged at the principal Chimney Rock Access, though the nearby Rumbling Bald Climbing Access is admission-free and offers one of the park’s six trails. Visiting Chimney Rock Access offers opportunities for picnicking and hiking on trails that range from child-friendly nature explorations to moderately strenuous treks to the top of Chimney Rock Mountain and to the edge of Hickory Nut Falls. Concessions and gift shops are available. The Rocky Broad River is a destination for trout anglers. Other access areas into the park—now encompassing more than 5,700 acres—are to be developed.
