Birds and Clays, Inc. equips 12 forested stations with automatic traps that shoot sporting-clay targets high in the air, where they attempt to evade hunters’ bullets with swift, aerial maneuvers. Sporting clay professionals acquaint visiting duos with their weapons and equipment before waving them on to solve vendettas against clay in a manner that doesn’t terrorize local pottery shops. Trappers man the stations and load six to eight disks at each as guests take aim, hoping to shatter as many proxy pigeons as possible before heading through the woods to the next station. A limited number of golf carts swiftly shuttle patrons between stations when available, and cartless dischargers can trek the woodsy paths via foot or off-roading skateboards.
On re-created sets complete with lights and sound, Hollywood Star Cars Museum unveils a collection of iconic autos from movies and television, including many built and modified by famed four-wheeled star-maker George Barris. Law-flaunting jaywalkers freeze at the sight of the 1966 Batmobile, a $250,000 1955 Ford Lincoln Futura concept car reimagined into a crime-fighting super machine complete with a foreboding front modified to look like the black winged animal. Famous 1969 heartthrob Herbie the Love Bug also makes the scene with sidekick Little Herbie, while the famed DeLorean from Back to the Future hangs out with a futuristic motorcycle from the far-off year 2015. Meanwhile, a Corvette Grand Sport driven by Vin Diesel in the 2011 film Fast Five inspires mouth-simulated explosions and improvised catchphrases.
Tucked in North Carolina's southwest corner, the small town of Bryson City sits amid the woodsy slopes of the North Carolina Smoky Mountains. The bisecting Little Tennessee and Nantahala Rivers create picturesque waterfalls that cascade through the mountainous terrain, a natural setting for outdoor recreation throughout the year. On clear days, one can catch a 360-degree view of the entire range from Clingmans Dome, the highest point in the national park at more than 6,500 feet. In winter, lodgers can take a scenic half-hour drive from the cabins to Cataloochee Ski Area, a challenging downhill course with 16 illuminated trails and slopes. Once all the snow thaws or is exported as ice cubes for Hawaii, whitewater rafting and kayaking become popular attractions at nearby Nantahala Gorge. And Bryson City itself charms tourists with antique stores, handcrafted pottery, and homemade chocolate amid the fetching natural landscape.
