Bryson City — A Small Town in the Heart of The North Carolina Smokies
Bryson City is a peaceful mountain town with unique shops, galleries and restaurants. We're located on the southern border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the mountains of Western North Carolina — an hour west of Asheville, just three hours from Atlanta and Charlotte, and two hours from Greenville, Knoxville and Chattanooga.
Surrounding our small town, there’s a rich vacation paradise — rafting and kayaking on the Nantahala River, boating and fishing on Fontana Lake, scenic railroad excursions, world class trout streams and mountain biking on the famous Tsali trails. We have creeks for tubing, trails for hiking and horseback riding, and beautiful waterfalls. We’re home to the Cherokee Indian Reservation and the North Carolina half of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The Everett Hotel overlooks the Town Square at the intersection of Main (US-19) and Everett Streets.
