Small-town America. That’s so much of what we love when touring, that’s so much of what we love here at Discovery Map. Most of our destinations, in fact, feature picture-postcard small towns that could make for perfect stage sets for movies such as It’s a Wonderful Life or TV shows like Mayberry R.F.D. These towns embody the heart and soul of America. And fortunately they are appreciated more than ever these days.
Brevard, North Carolina, a town of less than ten thousand inhabitants, is featured prominently on the hit list of happy American havens and it comes as no surprise that it’s a popular place for visitors, second home owners and retirees. Why, there’s even a Mayberry’s restaurant in the heart of town that serves up comfort food that Andy, Aunt Bee, Opie and company would likely gobble up with great glee.
The natural beauty of Brevard, North Carolina and the surrounding area astounds one and all, whether you are viewing it from the slim seat of your road bike or the comfort of your air conditioned car. Either way, the hilly routes afford enjoyable rides and the panoramas of the Blue Ridge Mountains delight whether you’re pedaling along a windy road or cruising along a scenic parkway. Best of all, you’ll find an abundance of places to stop to enjoy the views up close and personal or to sit and sip a brew or specialty coffee after a long day out on the trail.
