Bryson City NC

by | Aug 15, 2017

While we camped in Deep Creek, NC we stopped in Bryson City. If you’re camping around Deep Creek or just inside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Bryson City is a few minutes away and is your stop for groceries, fuel, shops and, a number of good fast food and local restaurants.

Bryson City, NC is not the typical town you find near the Smoky Mountains. Don’t get me wrong, Joan and I thoroughly enjoy our trips to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. As a matter of fact, we plan to go to Gatlinburg in December and return to Pigeon Forge late January as we start our winter trip. The difference that Bryson City, NC offers is has retained much of the small city charm not found in the larger mountain tourist areas.

What you’ll find in Bryson City is a somewhat slower, more laid back environment. For activities, you have the beautiful Deep Creek, tubing, hiking, mountain biking and photo opportunities galore. The main town offers a number of restaurants, several craft breweries, quaint shops and a very nice museum located in the old court house. Capping off a visit to Bryson City, you’ll find a fun day on a scenic railroad excursion, white water rafting at nearby Nantahala River and you’re just minutes from Cherokee, NC.

We enjoyed our Bryson City visit and stay at Smoky Mountain Campgrounds. Great get-away to experience nature and a simpler way of life.
