Transylvania County, NC, The Land of Waterfalls
"Where the water falls and falls and falls"
This is a very lush and beautiful place for the sightseer and hiker. There are 2 National Forests, 2 state parks and the Blue Ridge Parkway, a National Park. Picnicing, hiking, tubing down rivers, fishing, camping are all part of it. Over 250 major waterfalls. The only downside is that it can be rainy from time to time so come equipped for that. The other side of this area is all the arts, historic preservation, and the Brevard Music Center and Brevard College. There is something for everyone. For such a small area, there is an amazing number of restaurants, some are excellent. Lodging is everything from beds & breakfasts, to small cabins and campsites, 2 chain hotels and 3 privately owned ones. Take you pick.. I live here; I love it.
