WNC: A PERFECT LITTLE CORNER OF THE WORLD
The Western North Carolina (WNC) region is one of the real treasures in North America. The majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, mild year-round climate, scenic beauty, and proliferation of charming mountain towns, such as Asheville, Hendersonville, and Brevard, have made this area one of the most popular destinations for tour- ists, visitors, and “permanent vacationers.” Perhaps what separates WNC from other mountain regions is the combination of natural wonders evident along the Blue Ridge Parkway, combined with the culture, cuisine, and entertainment options often associated with bigger cities. It’s a match made in heaven – and right in our members’ back yard.
