    Haywood Park Hotel, Asheville

    Stay here - Downtown location is close to all the local shops and restaurants. Huge rooms and bathrooms. Very clean, great service and ambiance. If you travel between now and the end of April on a Sunday thru Thursday night you can stay for $99 if you mention the Southern Living article.

  • 2. Flying Frog Cafe

    As good as any restaurant I've ever been to in NYC. The filet is the best I've had. Great wine list and desserts. Try the salad with pears, walnuts and gorgonzola. Great service. Wonderful for a special event - anniverary etc..

  • 3. The Chocolate Fetish

    Located downstairs in the Haywood Park Hotel, this chocolate shop is known all the way the LA as the best truffle shop. Stop in for a box of assorted truffles and check out the huge strawberries. They ship nationwide. I guarantee that once you try them, you will have them shipped to your home.
