I stopped by just to check it out. I found the Asheville Visitor Center to be very nice. They have a lot of great information and the gift shop has a nice variety.

Printed material galore, great service, beautiful building, plenty of parking, and comfortable AC. This was my 3rd or 4th visit to this Visitor Center and I've been welcomed and amazed every time. I don't know how Asheville does it, but they do it better than anyplace else I've ever visited.

Amazing amount of information and resources available. Very informative and friendly staff. Tons of resources for anything you could imagine. They even helped us find a really great parking place downtown on a very busy Sunday!

The ladies at this Visitor Center were extremely helpful! The Center itself is a little tricky to find, but when you do, there is plenty of free parking! Get a map and a little advice and tour downtown Asheville.
