Don't be frightened though. It's all in good fun. The characters are from the Asheville Community Theater, and they involve us in analyzing the clues and solving the case. We get dinner too -- call now for reservations (tonight and Halloween) for the Murder Mystery Dinner Train.
If you're dying, instead, for mountain scenery on a peak color weekend, book yourself on the Tuckasegee River ride. This Great Smoky Mountains Railway trip departs Dillsboro both morning and afternoon for over three hours of Kodak moments.
One of the coaches is even called the Kodak car -- it's open-air with seats facing outward for prime viewing. Other coaches offer different types of seating, including a for-adults-only Club Car, with plushy couches. The 34-mile round trip crosses river trestles and curves through mountain tunnels, with a stop at Bryson City for lunch. Reservations are needed for these trips too, so call now.
Dillsboro is a charming town that invites strolling and staying, before or after the train ride. The downtown Jarrett House is one of the oldest inns in western North Carolina, offering lodging and food since 1884. There are many B&B's, nice restaurants, and more than 70 stores along the small-town streets. See you there.
