On-Track & Off-the-Beaten-Path
Spoiler Alert: There is contest info at the end of this post.
Let's see a show of hands? How many of you made some New Year's resolutions last week? Now keep your hands up if you are still on track. Good.
Although when you made said resolutions you may not have considered planning a vacation to help you keep them, it turns out that Asheville is the perfect place to do just that, and we want to share some of those tips with you during the next week or so.
Resolution # 1: Lose Weight; Get Healthy; Etc.
Many people avoid the scales when they return from vacation, fearful of the pounds that hitched a ride on the way home. But in Asheville, you can stay active and still indulge in healthy, farm-grown food:
- Burn calories while shopping, laughing, diving into waterfalls, or doing some other more traditional types of exercise, like mountain biking.
- Pull up a seat at one of Asheville's farm-to-table restaurants, where the freshness and flavors will make you want to eat your veggies, or your pastured beef.
- Take in the neighborhood after your meal with a pleasant stroll through the area or a nearby park.
- Pour a glass of heart-healthy vino, or find a new favorite at America's Most Visited Winery--which is also adjacent to some beautiful walking trails.
