Exciting Asheville and surrounding area. Many activities for adults and kids to explore. We visited during the summer and enjoyed the sights and sounds immensly.
If you go, you must watch the Drum Circle on Friday nights and hit the great restaurants and bars...a must...Barley's Taproom and Pizzeria. If possible, go in July for the Bele Chere Festival for great food, music, and people watching.
Many side trips are available into the Appalacian Mts. and if you've never tried water water rafting, try it. Many trips leaving from Hot Springs (many companies to choose from).
