Beautiful building and stores. Thought there would be more to it for all the hype. Some storefronts were empty.
This place is not what I thought it was going to be based upon reviews and websites. It was definitely outside my budget. We thought it would be local crafts and wares but it wasn't.
After walking all over town, this was a cool place to stop for a break. There are some nice shops and restaurants and the architecture of the building is very nice.
This is a really cool place to shop! The mix of shops is very good. Parking was a little crazy but worth it. There are some good restaurants there as well and you can walk around downtown after you park. Everything is close.

There are usually many more entries than they have space for so many of those that did not place in the top ten are on... More
The Grove Arcade is a must-see in Asheville. Stop by the Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar first and have a coffee or glass of champagne, and then stroll through the shops at the Arcade. This time of year there are gingerbread houses on display, and there are many restaurants to eat. There are also street artists outside selling... More
