Dear Traveler:

It’s September, one of our favorite months of the year up in Transylvania County. The days are warm. The nights are a little cool. It’s not quite full-on fall yet, but at a high enough elevation, you can see it from here.  While you’re wiling away those last few hazy, lazy days before sweater weather hits, you’ll find a fair amount to occupy yourself in and around Brevard. There’s some really great music happening around here, fantastic vistas, unforgettable art and a little bit of everything great about this most magical time of year.

Autumnally yours, 
The Adventurist
