Fletcher may be a small town, but its location makes enjoying the area anything but small. One of the stops along the Blue Ridge Parkway, Fletcher awaits to shower you with hospitality; from here, you can explore a host of fabulous activities including:
The unlikely combination of buying garden tools and experiencing live entertainment is offered at Fletcher’s famous Feed and Seed, where you will hear some of the best bluegrass, gospelgrass and mountain music anywhere. There is no cover charge, though donations are accepted, and the refreshments run to soda and moon pies as the venue is church-affiliated.
If exercise appeals to you more than music, then stop by the Broadmoor Golf Links, a championship golf course designed by one of golf’s “fab four” designers, Karl Litten. Planned to provide four hours of golfing fun, the course features tees ranging from 5,600 to 7,000 yards.
For those interested in more nature than just on a golf course, the North Carolina Arboretum takes its cue from the botanically diverse area and offers a stroll through 65 acres of cultivated gardens. It is more than just pretty flowers: there are special exhibits and classes on everything from pottery to photography, from the mushroom club’s well-named FungiFest to LEGO brick sculptures.
Chimney Rock State Park awaits those who want their nature even wilder. Five different hiking trails will give you some of the best views in North Carolina, along with unusual geological formations, native wildlife and rare indigenous plants. One of the trails features discovery stations for children, and educational opportunities.
It is a place, it is a festival, it is a summer institute, it is the Brevard Music Center, a wooded 180-acre venue that is one of the country’s premier summer training programs and music festivals. For seven weeks, you will have the opportunity to hear consistently high levels of public performance, as students and faculty present over 80 orchestra, chamber and opera performances.
The Biltmore Estate was George Vanderbilt’s 8,000-acre escape from everyday life. You, too, can escape into a lost time of elegance and excess as you tour the Biltmore House and gardens, then visit the Antler Hill Village connecting past and present through educational and outdoor activities, live entertainment, shopping, dining and even a winery.
