Hi, I’m local explorer Matt Bateman, and I have lived on the Quieter Side of the Smokies, in and around the mountains of Western North Carolina, for decades, and I want to provide you with unique advice and insights to make your trip planning a breeze.
In this blog, you’ll learn about all of the nooks and crannies that western North Carolina has to offer. ¬†From remote hiking trails and waterfalls, to the most popular events and festivals, I’m here to help.
Please feel free to connect with me & my StayPlaySmokies brand anytime:
