Brevard vs Highlands, NC

Jump to last reply

For a summer trip to the Western NC mountains , I'm debating on either going to Brevard or Highlands. I've already been to the Smoky Mountains ( Gatlinburg), been to the North Georgia Mountains, been to Asheville, and been up to the Blowing Rock area, and have already seen most of the sites along the Blue Ridge Parkway between Asheville and the Boone/Blowing Rock area. I wanna go some place new. I've never been to highlands or brevard or that area around there. I have also not really traveled the Blue Ridge Parkway south of Asheville. I def want to visit the Highlands area even I don't stay there. I haven't seen Chimney Rock or the Cataloochee section of the Smoky Mountains NP. Whiteside Mountain, Gorges SP, and Caesars Head and Table Rock nearby in SC also look interesting. We do some hiking but not a lot. And just like to see the sights. My only concern about Highlands is the restaurants. They sound high dollar. We don't goto a sandwich shop for dinner but not into high dollar places either. Highlands sounds more tourist oriented though than Brevard. Plus, i like the fact it is high elevation, it probably does not get that hot in the summer. Another thing to consider is convenience to the sights I'm interested in seeing. Any suggestions?
Thanks
