Kayak Ranch

Like the Cadillac Ranch with its half-buried cars, Kayak Ranch is for western North Carolina kayakers. The colorful array of kayaks is at the edge of the Southwestern Community College campus in Bryson City, on the side of US Highway 19/74. You don't have to go off the beaten path to find this festive display.
