Dear Traveler,
Have you been outside recently? It is beautiful. Flowers! Leaves! Rushing waterfalls! Bright sunlight! Brevard and Transylvania County are spectacular at any season, but there’s something extra special about the time when spring is in full-bloom, and it starts to feel like summer. Big things are coming soon — summer camps, Sliding Rock, loads of sunshine — and you can get a jump on the good times with some of our favorite events this May. Whether it’s toe-tapping music, a fabulous street festival, or maybe a moment to celebrate our veterans, you can have fun in any flavor, at any speed this month in Brevard and Transylvania County. So, if I May, let me invite you to get out there and join us for a great time.
See you in the sunny days ahead,
