Dear Traveler,

They call these the dog days of summer, but having checked in with a couple of very enthusiastic canines at the Brevard Dog Park, I think they’d agree that’s nothing to lose your cool about in Brevard and Transylvania County. No matter whether you’re looking for a shady trail, a brisk splash, a great excuse to chill out and check out some great music, or maybe just a refreshing beverage at the end of another fabulous day, Brevard has plenty to offer up this August. Why not sneak in a couple more summer adventures?

Don’t forget the sunscreen!

 

Catch you on the trail,
