There's something special about Asheville, North Carolina, and the world is just beginning to discover it. This thriving mountain city features a funky and eclectic downtown, 30+ art galleries downtown alone, a world-class culinary and craft beer scene, a thriving live music scene and, of course, the awe-inspiring scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
This is the ultimate playground, with a wide diversity of outdoor adventures and the ideal destination for an active and healthy getaway. It's an area steeped in history, from the grand splendor of the Biltmore Estate to uniquely Applalachian traditions in music and craft. And Asheville takes fall up a notch with some of the most colorful foliage in the nation and one of America's favorite ways to take it in—the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Fodors.com named Asheville one of the "Places We're Going in 2011," and TripAdvisor.com just named Asheville a winner of the Traveler's Choice Awards for top food and wine destinations in the U.S. And that's just the beginning.
