- Waynesville

Waynesville is the type of town that once discovered, you want to keep it for yourself.
The 500,000 acre Pisgah National Forest does a lot of that for you. By restricting building and limiting expansion, the beauty is locked in perpetuity for all of us. It's the seat of Haywood County; the county with the most peaks over 6000ft east of the Mississippi. That natural envelope of beauty matches a friendly homeliness the LA Times recently called 'a bustling combination of mountain charm and sophistication.' As you search the web for Waynesville entries the word 'authentic' is used more often than most. For once it's not a slogan, when you visit you'll know it's the truth.
