    Asheville, in North Carolina and not far from the border of Tennessee is the home of the Biltmore Estate which is also not far outside the Great Smoky Mountains. Take a trip through the mountains and stop for the day in Asheville.

    A small city nestled in the mountains only an hour and 15 minutes from Bryson City. Enjoy the beauty, shopping, restaurants, history, and culture of this wonderful place.

    Asheville is the artist's colony of NC. There are so many things to see there, including of course, the Biltmore. But in Asheville, you are at the hub of all that is Appalachia in North Carolina. You are close to so many things that it's the place to be.

    The Biltmore House is a must see while you are in Asheville!! Spend the day wandering the grounds, at Antler Hill Village or the winery. Great concerts and a MUST SEE during Candlelight Christmas Evenings running from November 9th through December 31st.

    The downtown is very alive and great for day or evening. It is a walkable city with so much to see.

    Aesthetically and culturally, Asheville is my second favorite city in the US (FYI, my favorite is Seattle). How can one city be home to that many artists and yummy restaurants? You can visit the Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Estate and eat the best fried green tomatoes in NC.

    Absolutely one of my favorite U.S. cities! Small, accessible, friendly and very easy to navigate. Also one of the healthiest cities - has been offering "specialty" foods like vegan and gluten free long before it became popular. Terrific live music scene and just an oh-so-funky vibe that only Asheville has captured in such an authentic way.

    Ashville is bit too Bohemian for my taste, but I still have enjoyed my visits over the years. There is just so much to do, to see, to taste, and feel!

    First to Review

    Asheville is in the mountains of Western NC, The Biltmore Estate is the big tourist attraction, but there's so much more. Wonderful restaurants, many opportunities for hiking, whitewater rafting and skiing, Great shopping and proximity to Mt. Mitchell, highest mountain east of the Mississippi!

    As an artist, Asheville was wonderful. So much beauty, both man-made & natural, I was inspired for weeks after my trip. I make jewelry, and the selection of bead shops was fantastic. Of course, any trip to that area is not complete without seeing Biltmore House.

    This mountain town offers great breweries, shopping, food & outdoor activities! Rented a cabin just outside of town & found it easy to navigate downtown. The scenery is gorgeous and the overall city is bustling with outdoorsy people. Skiing in winter & mountain biking & hiking are great things to do while there.

    Asheville is the Hippy Hipster capitol of the United States. But those aren't the only people there... Many places can be called diverse in race (LA, NYC, SF), but what about in TYPES of people. Asheville has a unique mix of: Straight up REAL Hippies, Mountain Adventurers, Subaru Drivers, Appalachian Mountain Folk, Bikers, Hicks in Pick-ups, Florida Vacationers, Rich Retirees, Christian Conservatives, Liberals, New Agers, Artists, and more. Beyond all the CRAZY people, Asheville has sweet things to offer, including lots and lots of waterfalls, rivers, trails, and views, The Biltmore House, The Grove Park Inn, Billy Graham Training Center, Blue Ridge Park Way, Downtown Dining, Music, Festivals and even a Drum Circle! Kick back, relax, and wear some flannel whilst you visit A-Town.

Description

Just try to visit Asheville without falling madly, passionately in love with the Appalachian city of culture. Unlike anywhere else in the United States, Asheville is a blend of outdoor activities (the Blue Ridge Parkway passes right by), shopping and dining galore (think sustainably caught cornmeal-encrusted catfish and two organic bedding stores) and cultural pursuits like the Biltmore Estate, the second largest concentration of Art Deco buildings (just behind Miami), and a bevy of artists and craftspeople.
