Not my cup of tea. I suppose it is fun for families, but it is noisy and crowed. On Saturday's they have a flee market of vendors.

Asheville is alive with people walking all around the downtown area and Pack Square is one of the hubs. The weekend we were there they had a festival going on with entertainment and lots of booths and then another day it was the culmination point for a race. Nice to have this open area right downtown.

You never know what you will see in Asheville. Everything from topless day to protests. Today was lots of dreadlocked dudes and chicks dancing and playing music.

It is a good place for you (adults) to relax and let the little ones play in the water. The Square is equipped with visitor information and public restrooms. Nice place to eat and some historical buildings.

As many other reviewers have noted, there's always something going on at this busy spot that serves as the hub of downtown Asheville. Street preachers, performers, and protesters all gather at Pack Square. Some of Asheville's best eating establishments look out on it. Be sure and make it a part of your visit, but don't worry. As the old cliche... More

Downtown Asheville is a hopping place these days. Pack Square, restaurants, nightlife - it's all there. Quite a change from the sleepy little town of old, Asheville is vibrant and entertaining. We enjoyed a few evenings there and will happily return!

A wonderful place to play in the water, listen to a concert, walk, ride a segway, meet friends after dinner. The city buildings are beautiful with the mountains in the background.
