Dear Traveler:

Happy New Year! I hope you had a fantastic holiday. We certainly let the good times roll up here at Adventurist HQ, and by “roll” mean “took the mountain bike for a spin and stopped in for a cup of holiday cheer.” It was an exciting 2017. 2018 promises even more thrills, chills and spectacular scenery up in Transylvania County, and that’s just the waterfalls.
Tis the season of resolutions. If yours include making more adventure, seeing remarkable performances, finding great new art, learning about the natural world and taking a little time to get lost in your thoughts in a truly unforgettable place, consider adding “Visit Transylvania County” to your list. It won’t disappoint.
See you on the trail, 
The Adventurist
