Welcome to WeSpeakWNC

There is magic in these mountains

They call you, draw you in, mesmerize you. They are beautiful in more ways than one.

Through every season, our mountains remain strong. Steady. A living history.

But without the people who dedicate their lives to this place – the ones who make it matter, who live and breathe it – these mountains wouldn’t be home.

Those who dedicate their time and love to make WNC special, know what the mountains hold.

The richness in culture, in heritage, in knowledge. The businesses that build us. The resources that guide us. The support. The sense that you are not alone even when you’re hiking a trail and no one is around.

The magnetic nature of this place will pull you in. But the people will make you want to come back and stay a while.

They are the story that we tell, they are the reason we speak

We speak local. Handmade, artisan, craft.
We speak expertise. In everything we do.
We speak experience and adventure that leave you wanting more.
We speak discovery of new places and ideas.
We speak passion for the region and the future.

We speak community. Together, we thrive.

Our home, our voice. Our mountains. We Speak WNC
