Asheville is one of the most welcoming, vibrant cities in America. The city's rich architectural legacy is the perfect retro-urban backdrop to the edgy energy that emanates from the locally owned-shops and art galleries, distinctive restaurants and exciting entertainment venues.
Surrounded by one million acres of forest, Asheville is heaven on earth for outdoor aficionados. Blaze along hundreds of miles of trail through unfragmented wilderness in national forests, summit one of 40 peaks above 6,000 feet, cast for trout on a blue-ribbon stream or cruise the Blue Ridge Parkway, the nation’s preeminent scenic byway.
It is no secret that Asheville has grown into the eastern U.S. craft beer destination. Boasting more breweries per capita than any U.S. city, hundreds of local beers can be enjoyed in Asheville on any given day.
