Ehh - 8/1/2018
I’ve lived here for three years. I love the beautiful mountains but it rains all the time. Fifty six inches a year, the second highest in America. Summers are the worst season. It’s also Trump country, if that’s important to Read More

Brevard is cool - 9/6/2014
I love Brevard. I was raised there, moved away for college for about 15 years after that. I had the opportunity to live there again for about 2 years before my husband was transferred and I miss it so much. Brevard is a slower pace of living. You can walk down the main street and come across friend after friend. Locals don't like the tourism industry and the changes, but the the big employers of Dupont and Ecusta are gone and the tourists help keep the town going. Brevard is small and quaint. When they talk about how bad the traffic is, that's a joke - I live in Atlanta - I can talk about traffic. I lived on a mountain top with an amazing view and 12 minutes to downtown for my job - and that was during morning rush hour!!. No, jobs aren't in full supply, but there are only so jobs in a town that size anyway. I run across so many people in Atlanta who know and love Brevard. They love it for the quaint downtown area (which really isn't touristy like some might say), outdoor Read More

Not so little and cute - 10/11/2013
The days of small town comfort is gone .Brevard is a traffic nightmare, so many stoplights, one every block. The traffic pattern has been changed more times than the locals can count. We have a huge amount of Florida retires here, they bring money but usually spend it elsewhere.There are hardly any jobs in town, most have to either drive to somewhere else for work or have seasonal or domestic, or self employed. The downtown is nice looking but only has street parking, stores are touristy. We do have the forest, most enjoy the hiking, bike riding. We have no bike lanes for bikes so that is a consideration for Read More

clarrification - 3/30/2008
Brevard's mild climate and mountain views have turned it into a summer home and tourist mecca. Housing prices have soared. Unfortunately, over the last 4 years, the 2 main industiral plants have closed leaving 1,000 locals out of jobs. The preview here says jobs are good, but it is a false statistic. Many of the locals are working 2 or 3 jobs to keep their homes and cars. Property values are now so high that the locals cannot afford land or a house if they didn't already own one. They are resentful and suspicious of the money-hungry developers and their clients. It's a sad situation.
The only redemption is that nearly 1/2 the county (Transylvania) is in National Forest, State Forest, or State Park.
Brevard city limits is only about 8,000, not the 16,000 listed. That is merely the number of people receiving mail out of the Brevard Post Read More

Brevard NC - 12/14/2007
Brevard is a great place to live. I just wish that it stayed small. It has gotten to big for my liking. Dont get me wrong it is still a great place, I just remimber when it was smaller and I think I liked it more then. I feel that people are coming from out of town and wanting the town to turn in to a city. They are doing a good job of it. I have to say that I wish out of towners would love the place for what it was and not trying to make it like the place they Read More
