Asheville is one of our absolute favorite towns to visit in North Carolina. It is the ultimate eclectic town to explore this spring. Downtown Asheville has plenty of places to eat and drink, including some of the signature breweries in the area. Walk along the streets and listen to street performers all while surrounded by mountains. For shopping take a short drive down the hill to the Asheville mall or to Biltmore park. Asheville has plenty of activities for families or couples including, the Biltmore House, Grove Park Inn, and hiking trails for days in the Blue Ridge Parkway.
What a lovely town! Just recently visited the up and coming mountain town just 30 minutes from Asheville, and I have to say Im pleasantly surprised. The brewery scene is amazing lead by none other than national brewing powerhouse Sierra Nevada. Then there’s The Riveter a huge indoor climbing gym and covered/outdoor mountain bike circuit. Then the winery scene! Some absolutely amazing wineries have opened there. Stone Ashe and Marked Tree were two that really stood out. And the downtown…just wow. Wide streets, great shops, cute art, and delicious restaurants. Consider this place for your next visit. You will be very pleased.
