Dear Traveler:

Recently, the world has taken on a kind of shimmer. The light seems brighter. The colors richer. There’s a song in my heart and a spring in my step. I find myself asking, could it be love

It is, after all, the season for sweethearts, and Brevard is an awfully sweet place to take yours. Flowers and candy are all fine and dandy, but what’s more romantic than a winter stroll to a waterfall, followed by a delicious meal, a little night music, and a cozy spot beside a fireplace? So, get to work on your love letters and spiff up those serenades, because it’s time to fall in love with Brevard and Transylvania County. 

Won’t you be my Valentine?
