Five Cool Things to Do

Five Cool Things to Do in Rosman, Sapphire and Toxaway Travel southwest on Highway 64 from downtown Brevard and you’ll see a beautiful world unfolding before you. A temperate rainforest. The headwaters of the French Broad – one of the oldest rivers in the world. Spectacular, edge-the-world views from the Blue Ridge Escarpment, waterfalls and starry skies aplenty. These treasures and more are woven into the communities of Toxaway and Rosman, which offer visitors extraordinary opportunities for fun and unforgettable adventure. 1 1 HEADWATERS OUTFITTERS For more than 25 years, this family-owned outfitter has served as an outpost for all things French Broad River-related from paddling, tubing, and fishing to gearing up for your adventure or just hanging out after a good long float at their onsite Forks of the River taproom. Headwaters also plays host to live music, food trucks and special events, so it’s always a good idea to keep an eye on their goings-on when you plan your trip. Learn more about Headwaters Outfitters. 2 2 PARI This 200-acre Space Age Educational Center in Rosman was once a NASA relay station and a Department of Defense tracking station. These days, PARI hosts programs and events that welcome guests of all ages to explore the universe via their telescopes, museum, gallery, and Certified Dark Sky Park. With cabins on premises and special overnight packages on weekends, would-be astronomers can have a celestial experience at a truly out-of-this-world place. Learn more about PARI. 3 3 GORGES STATE PARK With...

Something’s Brewing

Something’s Brewing What’s on tap at Brevard’s local breweries The clean, clear and chilly water that runs down the mountains and fills Transylvania County’s streams, rivers and lakes has long been one of our greatest local resources. Water is also a critical component of excellent beer, which you can find on tap at all five of Brevard’s local breweries. These run the gamut in size, shape, and flavor profile, but all are must-stops for fans of a delicious pint, a welcoming atmosphere, and anyone curious to get a taste of what Brevard’s storied waters can do. 1 1 BREVARD BREWING Opened in 2012, this family-owned local brewery is Brevard’s oldest. Brewmaster Kyle Williams specializes in handcrafted lagers and pilsners, which are rare among North Carolina’s microbreweries. Using imported German barley, hops, yeast, and Brevard’s soft brewing water, he creates delicious beers. Brevard Brewing is in the heart of downtown on East Main Street. Truly a business with deep roots in the community, the brewery is located in the former Trantham’s Department store building, which was owned and operated by the family and their predecessors for three generations. Learn more about Brevard Brewing. 2 2 ECUSTA BREWING The Cherokee word “Ecusta” is what Transylvania County’s indigenous population called the Davidson River, which flows through Pisgah National Forest. Technically, the word means “Get Distant,” which Ecusta Brewing hopes will spur many adventurers to take the trail less traveled and drop by for one for their excellent lagers, ales, sours, porters and...

Through teaching slow, gentle (though not always easy), & intentional classes, Katie hopes to create a space where her students can have a more deliberate conversation with their bodies, therefore feeling more connected with their bodies when they take their practice back out into the world. Katie comes to teaching yoga with 20 years of personal practice and has been teaching throughout Brevard for the past 3 years. She is a small business owner here in town, heading up Green Heart Juice for the past 7+ years & you can find her at Transylvania Farmers Market Saturday mornings.
