Known for its laid-back lifestyle and bounty of natural beauty, you can also enjoy the area's bustling arts scene _ it's just a short drive from the funky shops and eclectic eateries of nearby Asheville.

Things to do

Waynesville _ not just blowing smoke in the Smokies

Sure, Waynesville's got plenty of killer forests to choose from, but you'd be missing out if you didn't lose at least a few hours amid the scenic splendor of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Here, you'll find more than half a million acres of old growth forests, rocky peaks, and more hiking trails than you can shake a stick at. Back in town, check out the Museum of North Carolina Handicrafts, where you can get up close and personal with local craftwork in a historic 1875 farmhouse.


Waynesville _ a charming town all year round

A true mecca for outdoorsy types, Waynesville really has it all. Summer visitors flock to the area for its lakes, rivers, and streams, and Lake Junaluska is a major destination for canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. The bounty of national parks in the area means you'll never run out of new trails to explore, and the famed Appalachian Trail can be found just an hour's drive from town. During the colder months, skiing is a popular pastime, and you'll find 18 runs for skiers of all skill levels at the Cataloochee Ski Area.
