Dear Traveler,

As Spring 2021 has sauntered sunnily into Summer, I’m hearing the laughter, music and joy that comes with people stepping back out into the world again.  While Transylvania County’s abundant natural resources have been a source of adventure and respite for folks throughout a lot of last year, it’s only been recently that many of Brevard’s and Transylvania County’s beloved events and activities have twinkled back to life.  And we’re very excited to report it is indeed lively out there.
We warmly invite you to get out and experience all that this extraordinary place offers in this most glorious summer season. There are lots of wonderful things to discover, no matter your pleasure.
The fun is back and I can’t wait to see you at one of these excellent events!
