Dear Traveler,
Everyone has their seasonal sweet spot. For me, there’s always been something extra special about early June in Brevard. It’s almost, but not quite summer yet. The days are long and warm. The sun is super bright. Depending on where you are in Brevard and Transylvania County, you might be able to hear the splashing at Sliding Rock, the laughter of early campers, and the sound of instruments tuning up for outdoor performances at Brevard Music Center and beyond. At this time of year, it feels like everything is happening, which can be a little daunting if you’re trying to cool down and summer up. So, clear your calendar and prepare to point your compass due Fun. It’s going to be an amazing season.
See you out there,
