Visit Asheville

AskAVL220Asheville is nestled into the misty Blue Ridge Mountains like a twinkling Never-land, and it is the heart and center of Western North Carolina. With a population approaching 85,000 in July 2011, Asheville is the largest city in WNC, and 11th largest in the state, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Named for 18th century governor Samuel Ashe, the city lies at the juncture of the Swannanoa and French Broad rivers, offering beautiful walking trails and a storied history. Attractions include monuments to Civil War era governor Zebulon Vance; America’s largest private home at Biltmore Estates; elegant gothic and art deco architecture; studios in the River Arts District, and the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. Residents vow the traditional, gracious Southern city with a decidedly west coast vibe, “Foodie” culture, and a bohemian heart somehow embodies the best of all worlds. Certainly, it dances to the beat of its own drums during open jam sessions Fridays in downtown’s Pritchard Park. The music in Asheville is as varied as the local microbrew selection – something to everyone’s taste.

Famous for inspiring Thomas Wolfe’s 20th century literary masterpiece, Look Homeward Angel; today Asheville emerges as a leader in community building, collaborative work environments, alternative energy development, sustainability and green living, entrepreneurial economy, organic farm-to-table agriculture, and natural and integrative health care.

    The Biltmore Estate is Asheville’s main attraction. With 250 rooms in this mansion, it is definitely a must see when you are visiting the area. In addition to the home; there are the gardens, winery, lakes and so much more to see. We took a tour there and got to experience a wonderful time filled with history, architecture, art, nature, royalty and beauty.
