Bryson City

Travel: Bryson City, NC


Although I’d been to the area before (one of my sisters went to Western Carolina University in Cullowhee), Bryson City ¬†was new to me. And what a cute little town it is! We did not choose Bryson City for the attractions it offered, but rather the lack of. We went based off a good looking, pet friendly cabin with a secluded feel. I knew from the descriptions on the website that there would be a steep driveway, but not to the point where it probably should have recommended a four wheel drive. It helps, though, to know how to maneuver on hills- knowing you need a little speed and driving slightly off center of the driveway so you didn’t drive where others drove and spun into the ground. My husband is from SC, where it’s flat. Let’s say he learned something new.

Top Ten: September Finds

So, I know this post is a little late, what with it being called “September Finds” and all, but the monthly round ups are one of my favorite series. I couldn’t let this one go.

Temperatures might be plummeting this month, but it’s not quite cool enough to bring myself to get my faux fur throw out of the closet. However, what I have brought myself to do is book a cabin in the mountains for a weekend. I still have a little bit of time in front of me to do some research for things to do, specifically in Bryson City, NC. If you’ve been, let me know what you enjoyed. Cherokee might be nearby, but I can’t be bothered with the casinos as I never win anything. The year I turned 18, I bought lottery tickers every other week or so and never won a thing. I realized from that point on that it’s just not where my luck’s at, so I quit wasting my money on it. Who knows, though? Maybe in 20 years, I’ll feel super lucky enough one day to give it another try.
