|Tucked away in a corner of western North Carolina, Brevard and
Transylvania County is a scenic wonderland.
|The name itself, meaning "across the woods," is very
apt. Over 80% of the county's 379 square miles is lush, green forest
land, with sparkling waterfalls scattered throughout. |
|It is said that there are some 250 falls, though some are on
private property and some are (almost) inaccessible. But there are
enough beautiful, shining falls to take your breath away.|
|Besides waterfalls, you'll also discover other mountain vistas of
rare natural beauty.
|In this area of the Appalachians where northern and southern
vegetation mingle, the variety is infinite -- oak, poplar, balsam fir,
spruce, laurel and rhododendron. |
|In their season, azaleas flame yellow, orange and red against
the evergreens; rhododendrons bloom lushly in the "pink beds,"
as well as lavender and deep purple. |
|In fall, rich reds and golds light up the majestic mountains.|
|If you enjoy hiking, follow some of the many picturesque trails --
easy to strenuous, depending upon your capability.
|You may also enjoy the unlimited possibilities for camping.|
|There are more than 200 miles of clear streams and lakes for
fishing and boating. |
|You can take advantage of fine golf courses, and a score or
more of excellent private summer camps. |
|An outstanding and unique attraction in the summer is the Brevard
Music Center and Camp.|
|Brevard offers quaint antique shops plus interesting places to eat
and browse, all set in a charming, tree-lined downtown center.|
