Park and walk down this lovely small town's main street.  There are interesting shops: pottery, art, wine, outdoor, floral, antiques and several others. Several good selections for lunch or dinner from great local pizza to a neat pub and the bakery/cafeshop is wonderful!  It is only a few miles north of Asheville and maybe 8 miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you want to stay over there are a couple of B&B's in the area. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
