Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville is known for being an ideal place to enjoy the outdoors. Some activities we suggest are hiking, mountain biking, or rafting through the plethora of national forests and parks the area has to offer. Or take a scenic drive along the curvy mountain roads, stopping along the way to check out waterfalls and other gorgeous Western North Carolina views. If the outdoors aren’t your thing, book a tour of the Historic Biltmore Estates. Built by George Vanderbilt in the late 1800s, Biltmore Estates offers wine tasting, 75 acres of lush gardens, farm to table dining, an extensive collection of art, books, architecture, sculpture and other treasures.
