WNC Newcomers: Subscription Service

Juniper Explore is a monthly subscription service to help WNC newcomers (or anyone, really) have well-planned & personalized monthly exploration days to get to know the very best of their new community. You absolutely don’t have to be a newcomer to us the service! This service is for individuals, couples, or families*. 

Monthly Exploration Day

  • Personalized & customized planned exploration day for up to six hours (typically once a month, but can be more often!)
  • Reservations booked (if necessary)
  • Mobile-friendly itinerary emailed ahead of time with links,  juniper tips, parking suggestions, etc.
  • Perks may be included some months


  • $199 – 3 exploration day punch card – must be used within 6 months*
  • $359 – 6 exploration day punch card – must be used within 6 months (10% savings)*

*Additional cost for families greater than 6 individuals.

Here’s how it works:

  • To get started, we’ll send a ‘get to know you’ questionnaire that takes 10 minutes to complete.
  • At the beginning of each month, subscribers will receive an email with a link to a short questionnaire where they’ll provide information (interests & budget) about the following month’s exploration date.
  • Receive a custom itinerary in your inbox 2-3 weeks prior to your scheduled exploration.
  • Connect, have fun, & get to know your new community!


  • Enroll at any time
  • Allow one month for onboarding

My wife and I recently moved to the area and were looking for unique and fun ways to explore the area. Summer with Juniper Explore nailed it! We were able to provide some background on what type of experience we were looking for and Summer and her team did the rest. They booked the reservations, set up the itinerary – all we had to do was show up! Overall a great experience and got us to explore Asheville in ways that were both super fun and outside our comfort zone. Would definitely recommend Juniper Explore to visitors, recent transplants, and long-time locals.

How will you get to know us as an individual, couple, or family?
Initially, you will receive a ‘get to know you’ questionnaire, so we can learn a little bit about you, your preferences, & what you enjoy together.

How will we communicate our timing & preferences each month?
I will send a google form at the beginning of each month for the following month (i.e. February 1st for March 2023). In the form, we’ll ask you:
– Date & time-frame for the following month’s exploration

Let’s do it.

We look forward to working with you! Fill out the form below and you’ll receive an email & link for payment from us within 48 hours. If you don’t hear from us, there’s a possibility the form got lost in cyberspace. If that’s the case, just shoot us an email at: [email protected].
