10 Things To Do In Brevard North Carolina This Summer

There are many things that make Brevard, North Carolina an ideal destination for a summer visit. The higher elevation means cool mountain air, but it's also the kind of place where you can do as much...or as little as you choose because sometimes, just being here can be enough. As the saying goes, if you're lucky enough to be in the mountains...you're lucky enough.

So if you're looking for a way to escape the summer heat, check out our Top Ten list of things to do in Brevard, North Carolina

1. Rent a mountain bike (or bring your own) and discover Dupont State Forest on two wheels. It is considered by many to be ground zero for some of the best mountain biking in the southeast.

2. Take in a performance at the Brevard Music Center. Every summer, 400 of the worlds's most talented music students join professional musicians for a rigourus schedule of instruction and collaboration. This years "class" will present more than 80 public performances between June 27 and August 10. 

3. Cool off and have a blast at Sliding Rock a 60 ft natural rock waterslide.

4. Go canoeing or kayaking on the French Broad River.

5. Learn to fly fish. This part of NC offers up some of the best fly fishing you're going to find in western North Carolina.

6. Shop...eat...shop some more...stop for a gelato or a piece of fresh made local chocolate...shop...then finish the day with a bite to eat at any of our great downtown eateries.

7. Go hiking. With Dupont State Forest, Pisgah National Forest, and Gorges State Park all nearby, you'll have plenty of choices. 

8. Learn something new at the Cradle of Forestry. The story of the birth of forestry in America is told here through exhibits, guided tours along historic sites, and interpretive programs. Or stop off at the Pisgah Center of Wildlife Education and take in one of their programs or events.
