In the area so decided to check this out. It was the first enclosed mall in the country. Fantastic architecture; great for photographs. Shops on first floor only were quite unique and interesting. Worth a visit if you are in the vicinity. Easy walk to other attractions and places to eat.

We wanted to see some local artists' work and this was a great place to see a lot of it in one place - also indoor so the AC was nice on a warm afternoon. Interesting historical building too.

If you are already in the centre of Asheville, it is a very worthwhile visit to see the architecture.

Very nice looking shopping and dining area, but shops were ridiculously overpriced. Did not eat here, but looks like many good dining choices.

This was an amazing old building that had been restored. It's a small shopping mall and a small market place. I love architecture building and this was just beautiful. We visited this place as we were walking the Urban Trail. A great place to stop and cool off or get a cold drink or ice cream.

Our guide told us about this building on our Gray Line Tour Trolley. To our surprise, we discovered a wonderful building with lots of local shops, an exceptional clean bathroom, air conditioning and indoors.(HOT outside) and best of all refreshing tasty ice cream cones. Take a chance, go inside, and discover another side of Asheville!

Nice little shopping area. A number of the areas were closed. Beautiful architecture for those interested in that aspect. Lots of little restaurants and locals shops.

We stopped in the Grove Arcade to kill some time on a rainy afternoon. Inside is a mix of various shops. Outside are restaurants and the bookstore entrance. If you visit the Grove Arcade, take in the beauty of the building itself. That is more interesting overall than the shops are. The bookstore and gem store are worth a stop.

The Grove Arcade is a nice walk through another time. The architecture is beautiful. I love the line of phone booths and the circular staircases that float from the second floor. Worth the look!

If you like antiques and crafts this is the place for you. The building inside is magnificent with marble floors and beautiful staircases. They have places to eat inside as well as a barber, a hair dresser and an eye center. Even if you are not buying the building deserves a look.
