Under $100 / North America

Asheville, North Carolina, is jam-packed with incredible things to do, but if you’re worried about fitting it into your budget, check out the following single-day itinerary to have a fantastic day in town without breaking your budget.


Start your day with breakfast at the Over Easy café, where you can get a half order of French toast and a glass of orange juice for $11.


Spend your morning exploring some of Asheville’s unique neighborhoods, such as Montfort. This part of town is a great place to get some fresh air while you walk along the tree-lined streets to see the beautiful homes that date back to the late 1800s. Victorian-style homes, Queen Anne homes and even homes designed to look like miniature castles have been beautifully restored and are now a tourist attraction in their own right.


The RAD, or River Arts District, is a great way to experience the arts culture of the city. Art galleries, artist workshops and plenty of street art make it a fascinating neighborhood to explore.


For lunch, stop at Tupelo Honey café, where you can enjoy a Southern Chicken BLT made with apple cider bacon on a potato bun for just less than $17.


Spend your afternoon southwest of town at North Carolina Arboretum. Walking through the beautifully landscaped grounds and hiking trails helps you realize how connected Asheville is with nature. Admission to the arboretum is free; however, single vehicles will be charged a $14 parking fee.


For dinner, head to Rhubarb for a farm-to-table feast. Enjoy a wood-roasted whole trout or a grilled leg of lamb along with local brew on tap for around $35.
