Nantahala Outdoor Center has recently been mentioned in a number of blogs. We wanted to say thanks for these great recommendations, and let you know what folks are saying about NOC. Here are four blogs of note that we're so excited to be in. (You can click the image to read the full blog post.)
Daily Candy Atlanta recently visit the Nantahala Gorge, where they were pampered at the rustic-chic Spa at Lakeview, and stayed in one of the luxurious Watershed Cabins. Daily Candy recommended NOC's Relia's Garden Restaurant as a top-notch place to dine. We agree!
Away.com recently posted a story on their "Where Next?" blog entitled "Top 10 Whitewater Rivers for Tubing & Duckies". Three rivers that NOC rafts were nominated in this list—the Nantahala, Nolichucky and Chattooga!
The famous Saturday Evening Post mentioned NOC in their story on "America's Hidden Treasures", a feature on lesser-known areas of scenic beauty in America. The Nantahala area was included among such locales as Waimoku Falls, Hawaii and the Northern Cascades in Washington. We know this area is a treasure, and we're glad The Post thinks so too!
Here's the most recent article, from Outside magazine's July 2009 issue. Selected in their "Summer Road Trips" story, the Cherohala Skyway near Robbinsville got high marks as a 'motorist's dream'. The Skyway is popular with road bikers, too, with intense climbs and pitched curves. The Cherohala Skyway connects Cherokee National Forest in Tennessee with Nantahala National Forest in North Carolina, and is close to the Ocoee, Cheoah and Nantahala Rivers.
Thanks again to these bloggers for their great recommendations! We hope you'll visit NOC soon and find out for yourself what makes NOC so memorable.
