SEE THE LEAVES

Our annual fall program this year will be centered around the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad. 

The “See the Leaves” experience will begin with a matinee at the playhouse “Little Shop of Horrors” One of the longest running off Broadway hits of all time. A musical comedy about a boy and his bloodthirsty plant. Featuring a sensational score reminiscent of early 1960’s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown. Thursday we will start our adventure with a trip to Byrson city where we will board the train for the Tuckasegee River Excursion. This 4 hour trip travels 32 miles to Dillsboro and back to Bryson City Depot. Our day will end with dinner back at Bonclarken. 

On Friday, after breakfast you will have an opportunity to tour the Heidelberg House at Bonclarken, which will  conclude our event.
