Dear Traveler, 

Happy New Year! Our jingle bells have been fully rocked, jingled, and rolled down a couple single tracks, courtesy of some adventurous elves. It’s been quite the holiday, and our winter season is just heating up. Winter means great views and plenty of opportunities to explore our frosty, uncrowded forests, as well as great music, art, and places to get comfortable and celebrate your adventure by a roaring fire. It is the season of resolutions. There’s no better time to consider adding “visit Transylvania County” to your list. 

Have a wonderful 2024, 

The Adventurist
