Bonnie’s Buzzing About Asheville, North Carolina

Asheville, North Carolina! One of the sweetest Southern cities I’ve had the pleasure of visiting. Here’s everything you need to know for your next visit. 

One of your first stops in Asheville should be the Biltmore. This beautiful and historic Vanderbilt estate boasts its own winery, gardens and a 4 star inn. Tour the grounds and get a bite to eat while you’re there. If you’re still hungry, take a bite out of Southern Cuisine with the Eating Asheville food tour! Learn more about the history of the area, learn about up and coming restaurants and food trends, and more.

Biltmore Estate
 
Asheville has a bustling art scene, so be sure to explore the River Arts District. Every second Saturday, there are open sessions, classes, and art activities. It certainly won’t be hard to find musical entertainment in Asheville! You can check their music calendar for weekly events, and there’s even a guide on where to go dancing

The second most popular destination after the Biltmore is the famous Appalachian Trail. Stretching from Georgia to Maine, many of the trail’s miles are right in North Carolina. If you’re not much for wooded trails, explore Asheville’s Urban Trail! This self-guided trail is not even two miles, and weaves you through the cultural and architectural history of the city.
