Get To The Heart of It
Don’t be deceived by the easy pace and iconic small-town America ambiance of Transylvania County’s charming, historic county seat. There is probably something awesome going on right now in downtown Brevard. It might be as simple as a new exhibit at one of its many small galleries, a beer tasting at a local pub, or a truly spectacular day-capping combo of toy shop visits and a chocolate milkshake. Or it could be live music (which occurs with near-daily frequency in the warmer months) a bike or running race or one of Brevard’s many beloved, family-friendly street festivals.
A shortlist of things to do in Downtown Brevard might not stretch all the way down Main Street, but it would certainly wander through the one-of-a-kind inventories of local boutiques, grab a delicious meal or three at a wide variety of mouth-watering local eateries (of both casual and upscale orientations), drop by for a little bluegrass on the front porch of the Silvermont Mansion, get a tip or two about a mostly secret swimming hole from a chatty local and end up on a romantic, moonlit stroll past the courthouse gazebo.
Downtown Brevard offers fine, relaxed accompaniment to wilderness exploration and a whole new sort of adventure for any and all inclined to follow their senses through one of America’s Coolest Small Towns.
