Travel Tips for Sylva

This picture should describe to you what Sylva and the surroundings are like. It's a regular house, just like 80% of the residents of Sylva live in. Out is the mountains on large pieces of land, just like me. There are a lot of mountain folk up here, so watch out for 3 things, The occasional drunk (although they drink so much, they get used to it and are normally not noticeably drunk!),
The wandering horses or cows on the mountain roads, and winter storms.
In the winter time, Sylva can range from a day like today, where it was 70F in winter, or two days ago when there was 3 inches of snow on the ground, the sun never came out, and it was 25F. So, in the winter be prepared for cold and snow, but summer and fall are beautiful, mildly dry, and warm.

Get out and hike some of the wonderful trails that wind through the Great Smoky Mountain National Park (only 5 min from Sylva). These next sets of photos are of some flowers in the mountains my home sits on.

There is a city called Cherokee that is about 15 minutes from Sylva where you can see all sorts of old indian things. It's a really touristy city, but there is quite a good amount of fishing spots in the Cherokee Reservation. Fishing liceses are $7 a day and you can fish on a ton of stocked streams, creeks, and rivers. Here's a shot of me and the rainbrow brook I caught on day 1.

The whole place is off the tracks, but there is a lot to do around the place. If you are old enough, you can get to the Cherokee Harrah's Casino, only 25 minutes away, or for the sports nut, take the Great Smoky Mtn. Railway departing from Dillsboro (100 yards west of Sylva) into the Fontana Lake region. From there you can get a bus and be dropped off near the Natahala Outdoor Center. There are many options here. You can cut into the Appalacian Trail which heads from Georgia to Maine, you can white water raft, kayak, canoe, rent mountain bikes and bike around Fontana Lake (Beautiful!!), and more! Up the road the other direction from Dillsboro, hit up the Cullasaja River Gorge, shown here. Great waterfalls and gorges to look at!
