Enter to win a grand holiday or winter getaway to Brevard, one of our Top Christmas Small Towns. Known for its famous white squirrels, find plenty of festive cheer on its scenic Main Street (like those seen in the sappy Hallmark Movies!). Stroll through the galleries and find some outstanding restaurants. Plus, unwind at a glass of wine or some local beers. Don't miss our personal favorite, the Aluminum Christmas Tree Museum.
During the winter months, find some of the top winter hiking locations and scenic drives in the Land of the Waterfalls. Explore Pisgah National Forest, DuPont State Forest and Gorges State Park. Since Brevard is in a valley protected by the lofty Blue Ridge Mountains, they only see snow a few times a year. During colder weather, it's the place to go to see amazing frozen waterfalls.
The White (Squirrel) Christmas Sweepstakes is valued at $1,200 and includes
- Two nights of accommodations at Bromfield Inn. This restored, historic bed and breakfast is walking distance to downtown. Stay in style with many modern amenities, luxurious furnishings and unique treasures from their international travels. Gourmet breakfasts and evening refreshments are included each day.
- $75 gift certificate to The Square Root Restaurant
- $75 gift certificate to Magpie Meat & Three Restaurant
- $40 lunch gift card to Pisgah Fish Camp
- $500 Visa gift card for shopping at local shops and galleries
