Mornings in January can offer a perfect opportunity to reflect
Dear Traveler,
Mornings in January can offer a perfect opportunity to reflect on New Year’s Resolutions, especially from a scenic vista overlooking a forest or gorgeous waterfall. And if you’re looking for an idea past “read more books” or “get some exercise,” I’d offer that spending more time in Transylvania County is a delightful new direction. Now is a great time to start making plans. You might even want to drive up for an exploratory visit, and see just how much fun winter can be in our mountains. There are still plenty of one-of-a-kind events and adventures to whet your whistle for what’s yet to come throughout 2023 and beyond.
Have a Happy New Year!
