Nestled away in the heart of Transylvania County, Land of the Waterfalls, the small town of Brevard has taken after her protected forests and sunk roots deep into the mountains of Western North Carolina.
It has always been easy for me to get swept away in the current demands of our modern society. The weight of life itself seems to build upon our shoulders day after day, yet the purpose of it all has a tendency to remain hidden from our eyes. In a situation such as this, it is easy to feel from time to time that you are drowning.
That is why I make it a point to travel to Brevard, North Carolina once a year. There is a beauty to be found there in that town. A precious piece of life, a breath of fresh air, a certain something that one can only discover for their self.

Brevard is a great little town with a ton of life during the day and then very calm at night. During the day in Brevard you are always able to see tons of tourist walking around enjoying the little town, checking out all the shops, or just going hiking. Now that is a lot of fun but then at night time it gets even better, local pubs and restaurants like the phoenix lounge and the moose lodge with either have live music or just a bunch of very friendly people there enjoying there time and always willing to make new friends. I know that sounds like a lot of fun but there is more, if you decide to come down during one of our festivals you will be seeing a bunch of festive booths and a bunch of people walking around enjoying the booths or sitting down and enjoying the live music all day long. I know that when you come to this beautiful town then you are going to be having a great time.

The community is nice in the neighborhood, however it isn't very pet friendly.
