The Nantahala Outdoor Center hosts a variety of things to do in the Bryson City area, and is pretty much considered the hub of activities for the Nantahala Gorge.
guided raft trips
raft and duckie rentals
Appalachian trail goes through here
there is also a Hostel there for thru-hikers or anyone else who wants to visit
flat water paddling
a few restaurants
The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad also stops here for lunch
And if you just want to watch, you can walk up to "Nantahala Falls" and watch rafters fall out of their watercraft. Tons of fun to watch and laugh at people.

The secret is out! Anthony's has a new chef and I was totally blown away by the fresh appitizers, chicken, pasta and special Italian dinners not to mention the mouth-watering homemade desserts. My kids love Anthony's because they can get a slice of pizza just the way they want it!

There may not be much in the way of ambience, but the food and service more than make up for that. The waitresses are always prompt, happy, and keep that ice tea glass FULL! The food is not just pizza, but all sorts of Italian food, and all made from fresh ingredients, not prepacked or premade.
They don't complain when all I want is a glassof hot water to go with my meal, nor do they charge for it!
Favorite Dish: Where to start???? The fresh veggie pizza, with added pepperoni, the white pizza with three cheeses, the spinach/feta pizza, or the calzone? Spaghetti freshly prepared with many kinds of sauces. Who can choose?
And for those who like wine and beers, there are both old favorites and some new surprises.

Bryson City night life leaves alot to be desired. If you do decide to go out for a drink make sure you have a designated driver or risk losing your license due to the over population of cops in town.
Dress Code: Overalls acceptable! LOL!

The night life in Bryson leaves alot to be desired. If you do decide to go out for a drink make sure you have a designated driver, Bryson City just happens to be the county seat and has more cops than residents.

When people say "y'ouns" (pronounced yuns) to you, such as "y'ouns might want to catch the music happenin' t'night", understand that they mean "you", or "you-all", and keep the blank look from your face. That way they'll know you are a 'visitor', not a 'tourist'.

Favorite thing: Find a teenager there and talk to them....YES, they can do more than skateboard and listen to their music on headphones! The younger set in Bryson are interested in what goes on around them, and how things affect their town and their lives. They research and develop ways to help combat teen pregnancy and obesity, are interested in maintaining the ecological feaetures that make their area unique, while keeping Bryson what it is, a great place to live! All this and doing the things regular teens do, dance, work, hang with friends. You may find them training for the next Olympic tryouts in kayaking while maintaining a high grade average. Or playing team sports, going all the way to state champs, AND keeping their eye on college. They are the most unprejudiced and open young folks I have ever met in all my travels, and are the jewels of Bryson City.
Fondest memory: Hearing the train and owls hoot at night whenever I am somewhere else. Missing the fresh donuts from Aunt B's Donut shop, and the coffee club talk there in the mornings.
The streams and rivers everywhere. How the clouds change constantly. Anthony's PIZZA!
