Waynesville offers the vibrant, bustling small town feel that is only sweetened by its location in the Great Smoky Mountains with breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The historic, tree-lined town center features fine shops, a vintage movie theater, cafes and restaurants—all within walking distance of cozy B&B’s and the Museum of North Carolina Handicrafts. An ideal year around climate marked by mild winters, lush summers and legendary southern hospitality make Waynesville worth putting on your list.

The heart of this amazing city beats within the walk-able Downtown which is complete with top-notch restaurants, shopping, and art galleries, but you’ll also find the HART Performing Arts Center, Haywood Community College, and Medwest Haywood Hospital here. Most any retail shopping need can be satisfied in Waynesville, from a brand new Super Wal Mart, to Best Buy and Lowes.

Nearly 40% of Haywood County is occupied by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Pisgah National Forest and the Harmon Den Wildlife Refuge, where the Blue Ridge Parkway meets the Great Smoky Mountains.
