Most of Our Attractions Are Perfectly Natural
If you value the rugged beauty and history of the Southern Appalachians, you be richly rewarded with a visit to the North Carolina Smokies. Bryson City is a quiet country town surrounded by scenic mountains, rushing creeks and rivers, a placid lake — and none of the carnival atmosphere associated with our Tennessee neighbors.
Bryson City is centrally located in the middle of Western North Carolina's vast outdoor playground, a great spot for dozens of fabulous day trips. Area attractions.
