The location of an old Cherokee village, Bryson City embraces a quiet side of the Great Smoky Mountains.
Popular historic sites such as Mingus Mill and Little Greenbrier School are in your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to River Rafting & Tubing and Chimney Tops Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Bryson City: Santeetlah Lake (in Robbinsville), Highlands (The Bascom, Sunset Rock and Ravenel Park, &more) and Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Porters Creek Trail, Chimneys Picnic Area, &more). Next up on the itinerary: stop by Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual, experience rural life at Darnell Farms, hike along Tom Branch Falls, and get engrossed in the history at Swain County Heritage Museum.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Bryson City travel site.

Columbia to Bryson City is an approximately 4-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of bus and car; or fly. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Columbia in August: high temperatures in Bryson City hover around °F and lows are around °F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) early enough to go by car back home.
