Recently listed by Fodor's as one of the top must-see cities in the world for 2011, Asheville is often first recognized as the site of one of our nation's historical and architectural treasures-America's Largest Home, Biltmore. Recognition for Asheville's diverse culture continues to grow as AmericanStyle's number one small-city arts destination, the reigning "Beer City USA" micro-brew capital, and home to one of Rolling Stone's top five rock clubs in the country, The Orange Peel. This is good news for Atlantans, as Asheville is only 3.5 hours away.
