Asheville is on its way to being one of the trendiest spots in the country and for good reason. With stunning landscapes, great food and an amazing art and music scene, Asheville makes the perfect destination because it has a bit of everything.


This North Carolina city enjoys a stunning backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains with its lush green forests and mysterious blue mist that favors the mountain peaks and valleys. The city is a less than a two-hour drive from the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, making it a great destination if you love exploring nature.


In the last few decades Asheville gained prominence as a cultural hotbed, attracting a young and creative breed of chefs, artists and musicians that want a place to hone their crafts amid a progressive yet laid-back atmosphere.


The best way to get to know Asheville is by exploring its various neighborhoods, most walkable to meet the needs of this eco-friendly city. For the best restaurant and bar scene where local chefs craft amazing dishes from local, seasonal ingredients, head to the downtown district.


Head northwest of the downtown area into the Montford neighborhood where the well-preserved homes of the early 1900s demonstrate some of the defining architecture of Asheville.


Check out the River Arts District to delve into the city’s artistic side. This neighborhood was once a declining industrial center that has been revamped into a bustling art scene on the banks of the French Broad River.


Exploring Asheville you will find surprises at every turn but wherever you go and whatever you do you will find yourself welcomed by warm and friendly locals who are happy to share the bit of paradise they call home.
