Cashiers, North Carolina: "The heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains"

Like a page out of history, Cashiers offers itself as a romantic memoir of the past. Few mountain towns are as endearing. The name hearkens back to the horse-and-buggy days, when miners were paid cash for exquisite gemstones unearthed from ancient riverbeds. Cashiers itself is a rare jewel: quaint and friendly, with charming coffee houses, cafes, and curio shops. For a town with just one intersection its capacity to woo and impress is infinite. And the smiles from locals, ever-present. It is less that two miles square, yet stretches upward for nearly 3,500 feet. Cashiers is at once the ultimate destination, as well as a launching point for discovery. This is a town where dreams are born—and your heart belongs.
