Few People Know There’s A North Carolina Island You Can Walk To
Not many people realize that just a few city blocks from the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad in downtown Bryson City, lies an unspoiled island in the middle of the Tuckasegee River – and the only way you can there is on foot.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
