There is something about walking casually through a city, looking up and around, rather than being focused on where you are going or what you have to do. You see more and, if you do that with Asheville by Foot, you learn more. I've lived...More

The walk was through the city and included a great deal about history and architecture. Maybe not something kids that age would find interesting.

Good morning and thanks for your message. The tour is scooter friendly. There is one set of outdoor stairs but there is an elevator a few feet away that the guide can get you to.
