Things to do in Asheville.
Asheville is known for its beautiful scenery, arts, culture, and breweries! There is such a variety when it comes to choosing an activity for a considerably unique area. We have listed out some of our favorite local spots (The Looking Glass Creamery in Fairview is a must) and popular tourist attractions.
Hop in the car and head to the Blue Ridge Parkway for an impressive view of the Black Mountains (Milepost 342.2), one of the prettiest drives in western North Carolina. The Black Mountains contain Mount Mitchell (located in Yancey County, North Carolina), which is the highest point east of the Mississippi River. If you’re feeling adventurous, you’re in good company. Asheville is home to some of the best hiking in North Carolina. The hiking in Asheville attracts visitors to North Carolina from all over.
Whether you are chasing or waterfalls (pun intended), a foodie looking to find award-wining cuisine, or just plan to bar hop through some of the best breweries in Asheville (be sure to stop by Sierra Nevada – Asheville location), there is a place for you. Don’t worry if your Vacation Rental home is further away than your intended destination. We have “things to do” listed by area so you don’t stray so far from your Home. See our Asheville homes here.
