Have you read this month’s issue of the magazine? If you have, you’ll know that Bryson City, N.C., won our Top Towns contest. When we found out the results over here at the office, we were psyched. We love Bryson City, and what’s more, we love to play hooky (if we can get away with it). From riding the trails at Tsali Recreation Area to checking out the waterfalls at Deep Creek and throwing back a few brews at Nantahala Brewing Co., Dusty from the Asheville BRO office gave me the micro-tour de B.C. in four hours flat.

I’ll be back for more though. Beers, bikes, and mountain bliss – Bryson City has it all!
