SMITHSONIAN NAMES BRYSON CITY ONE OF 20 BEST SMALL TOWNS TO VISIT IN 2016

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, the Smithsonian has named Bryson City as one of the “20 Best Small Towns to Visit in 2016.” The top picks this year are all towns under 20,000 population that are close to National Parks. Eighteen states and the Virgin Islands are represented in this year’s list.

“It is always gratifying when a prestigious publication like the Smithsonian confirms what we have known all along – that Bryson City is the quintessential small town vacation destination, ” said Karen Wilmot, Executive Director, Swain County Chamber of Commerce. “Our strong relationship with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is mutually beneficial. Together we deliver the complete vacation experience with the combination of natural beauty and small town hospitality.”

Highlights of the Bryson City feature include the “Road to Nowhere,” the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad, Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours, the Nantahala National Forest, whitewater rafting, tubing, hiking, horseback riding, beautiful waterfalls, the Fryemont Inn, and the Heritage Museum.
