Dear Traveler,
I love Brevard in June. How about you? There’s campers and canoes, waterfalls and woodwinds, and an Arts and Culture Celebration that stretches straight into July (oh my)! The level of excitement among the white squirrel trendsetters is literally off the charts.  And we haven’t even discussed either Sliding Rock or Opening Weekend at Brevard Music Center, yet.

I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that summertime in Brevard is a truly magical time of year. You could pick one thrilling thing do every day and only hit a fraction of what’s out there. But I’ve put together a few places to start, no matter what your style of adventure looks like.

Don’t forget the sunscreen!

The Adventurist
Appalachian Nocturne

Blue Ridge Sunset Tour
Pisgah Field School
Thursdays, June 6- July 25

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that just about the only thing that makes a sunset more spectacular is when you can see it over a stunning mountain vista. This two-mile hike will wind up with a perfect 360-degree view of an unforgettable twilight experience. Then, after nightfall, learn a little about the Blue Ridge Parkway and Pisgah National Forest from your naturalist guide.  Isn’t it romantic?
