Asheville, NC

Asheville, NC, United States
30 Kudos
I love visiting Asheville. The city has different areas that provide a totally different experience. Like many great cities, the downtown area has several great restaurants and shops. If you enjoy people watching, I am not sure it gets any better that roaming around the streets here. I have walked by ladies wearing fairy wings and men dressed as nuns and this does not even turn many heads. The nice part is everyone is accepted.For a totally different experience, head to the Biltmore Village area which has beautiful architecture and more great restaurants and shops.If you want to pretend that you are in Europe for the afternoon, you can head to the Biltmore Estate and tour the mansion, gardens, and winery.West Asheville is like a town of its own and is worth a visit as well.Asheville is a popular destination and is often crowded, but do not let this discourage you from visiting. If you like amazing food, beer, and coffee, Asheville is the place to be.
