This is pretty much the centre of town and a good place to work from as it has a Visito Centre and toilets and futhermore it was a pretty little park.

So many shops. Mostly artsy. Lots of galleries and restaurants. A one time visit is enough. Should add a touristy store.

I loved the mix of sculpture/walls and open space. We were there in the evening, and enjoyed sitting on the benches while we watched everyone walk by.

A must see for travelers visiting Asheville. Many Karmic based stores, museums, great restaurants and art galleries. On a warm October afternoon also a great place to people watch. Many buskers and entertainers as well. Several large parking garages are in the area and make the experience easy on the weary driver.

Only went there at night on our way back to the parking deck. Large and lovely square with a splash attraction for kids, a lovely amphitheater, and a Veteran's Memorial.

Pack Square is great for the walking tour and to look at some of the great art deco architecture of the Court House. Close to downtown and easily accessible.

Located close to several office and government buildings, this square adds a festive aspect to the area. There are some interesting art/sculptures within the square. Numeroous restaurants and cafes line the square. There are plenty of benches and shaded area that are great for people-watching.

We stopped while visiting downtown and our son loved the splashville area. He didn't have a swim suit, but we didn't stop him from playing in the water fountains anyway. Your only a kid once!! He totally had a blast. According to the guest center, its only open April till October and has set times, but if your down there... More
