Asheville is a picturesque North Carolina mountain getaway as well as an adventure of its own. In addition to the many festivals and expositions which are planned, the streets are alive with spontaneous outpourings of music and dance. A walk through the downtown area will find much to interest you with its unique galleries and shops. You may want to spend some time perusing the menus posted outside the restaurants in order to make the difficult choice of where to eat. A visit to the Biltmore Estate is essential, and the nearby Biltmore Village offers attractions of its own with its half-timbered buildings and up-market shops.
A short drive away, the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains rise in front of you, and the views and vistas are unparalleled whether you view them from your car or from one of the many hiking trails available. However you choose to spend your time, there is an adventure around every corner in Asheville!
