Hey y’all! I’m officially back in Dallas and to the grind. I’d been away for a week or so, and one of the places I visited was Highlands, North Carolina. I went with my family and fully embraced vacation and this beautiful town. Highlands is a popular summer spot – especially for people from Atlanta and Louisiana – and a welcomed break from the Texas heat. Like, refreshing to be outside?! Where am I?? Mmm, bring me back! It’s a fairly small town, but blows up in the summer as a lot people…

Bridal Veil Falls This is the only waterfall in North Carolina that you can drive under! The 60-foot Bridal Veil Falls doesn't have a large volume of water. But it's along the highway, so it's convenient. Bridal Veil is easy to find. Just look for the sign on U.S. 64, 2.5 miles west of Highlands in the Cullasaja River Gorge.
