Christmas Trees – Inspiration for your
The world’s only vintage Aluminum Tree and Ornament Museum, ATOM is a quirky blast from the past featuring a wacky retro display of dozens of shiny trees, vintage ornaments, and whimsical themes.

The museum is open from November 11 through January 20, on Thursdays through Saturdays, from noon until 4 PM.
Shopping – Make Your List (Check It Twice)
When it comes to holiday gift-giving, even Santa himself would be hard pressed to outdo our festive assortment of boutiques, outfitters, galleries, studios, and shops in storybook settings throughout Transylvania from the heart of downtown Brevard to Toxaway, and from Rosman to Cedar Mountain.
Santa’s helpers can add a little bonus cheer with the Shop Local Holiday Giveaway, through December 15th, sponsored by the Brevard Transylvania Chamber of Commerce, at a variety of participating businesses. And while you’re making your list (and checking it twice), you can also check out the festive storefronts of Brevard Shops vying for top honors in the 2023 Holiday Windows Competition.

Stay – Sweet Dreams!
Even if the weather outside is delightful, a cozy spot is critical for chilling out, warming up, hanging your stocking, and settling in for a long winter’s nap. Brevard and Transylvania County’s many accommodations options offer ample opportunity for visions of sugarplums, from a luxury suite with a fireplace to a fire pit under the stars.
