Dear Traveler,
Have you been outside recently? It is exceptionally beautiful. The flowers are blooming. The birds are singing. And what’s that? Could that be a tree budding out? The white squirrels say yes, and who am I to argue? 

Even with the occasional shower (I hear they bring May flowers), April is pretty dreamy up in Transylvania County. You’d have to be a fool not to enjoy all the many things to do this month, whether music, art, adventure, or, literally, just stopping to smell the flowers. They’re springing up everywhere, just waiting for you to drop by. 

Catch you on the path, 
The Adventurist

PS: Don’t miss your chance to enter the Spring Into Brevard Sweepstakes, April 1-15, and win a magical escape to North Carolina’s Land of Waterfalls.
