Way’s To Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions Alive


Well, we are officially in our second month of 2022. Some of you may still be sticking with your New Year’s resolution’s while others may have let them slip through the cracks a bit. If you’re the latter, no worries! We’ve got a few recommendations for getting back in the groove of making 2022 your best year yet. Or if you’re still going strong, consider adding a little pizazz to your goals.


When it comes to making resolutions each year, it’s no secret that exercise is one of the most common. While a trip to the gym is a good way to get in shape, we’d like to suggest a new setting—Nature! Get out and work up a sweat in that fresh mountain air with a hike through the NC Smokies. You choose your route and level of difficulty for the trail that “fits” you! Nothing beats a good workout with a view.


Eating healthy is a big part of taking care of yourself and can make you feel good inside and out. Lucky for you, Waynesville is home to several farm-to-table restaurant offerings. Have peace of mind knowing your food is fresh from local farmers and tastes great too. The only way to find out is to come and see what our culinary masterminds are cooking up. Say goodbye to the guilt!


Maybe learning a new hobby or diving into a new interest was on your 2022 to-do list? Waynesville’s art and culture scene is the perfect place to spark some creativity in your life. Grab some inspiration from our fine art galleries, pottery shops, and more. For spectacular plays and performances, immerse yourself in the theatrics of HART Theatre. You never know what new creative outlet will become your favorite pastime.


Now that travel is becoming more common, set your GPS destination to Waynesville for open-air adventures that everyone can enjoy. Experience the breathtaking offerings of Western North Carolina. There is so much to explore right here in Waynesville, but if you’re craving more adventure, we are conveniently located close to nearby towns that are perfect for day trips. Enjoy an itinerary full of mountain explorations without having to spend a lot of time traveling in the car.


Time spent together is time well spent. Waynesville is home to activities and attractions for the whole family to enjoy. Participate in adorable animal encounters with llamas, goats, and more. Take a spin around a roller rink and fun zone. Or enjoy a shopping trip through Waynesville’s neighborhoods. The options are endless, so pack up your crew and enjoy a weekend of thrills together.

No matter what your New Year’s resolutions are (or were) there’s still time to make some positive goals for 2022. Consider Waynesville your destination to help you achieve yours, with the added bonus of a mountain vacation of course!
