Flat Rock is a nice small town, I've lived here for 8 years now. There is a decent amount of things to do, the scenery is the best part since it's located in the mountains.
Mountains and the country side that can not be found anywhere else! From the Blue Ridge mountain range to the apple orchards it is one of the most beautiful places in America.
