Brevard’s nickname is “The Land of Waterfalls” as the area boasts over 250 of them, ranging from the 125-foot (38-meter) Triple Falls in DuPont State Recreational Forest to the powerful and popular roadside Looking Glass Falls. Brevard is also home to a natural water slide, Sliding Rock, a favorite among kids and families. Beyond the fun of splashing and jumping into these mountain water attractions, Brevard also butts up to Pisgah National Forest, a 500,000-acre mass that spans 12 counties. The city also has three breweries, including the East Coast operations for one of the 10 largest craft breweries, Oskar Blues. Bike riding is also popular, with The Hub providing rentals and other outdoor gear as well as a cool place to have a beer after a day of exploring.
