If you are into mountains, beer, and nice people, Asheville is worth a visit. There are creameries and breweries along with plenty of shopping. The Biltmore is worth a visit and the scenery is superb.

Definitely hit Wicked Weeds and the Biltmore Mansion. The gardens at the Biltmore are worth the fee alone!

Asheville is a simply beautiful city. It is populated by the most open minded, outgoing citizens. There is so much to do in the beautiful surrounding mountains, as well as in the thriving downtown streets. Hiking, kayaking, and zip lining are popular for the average adrenaline junkie. However, I enjoy the more artistic, human element of Asheville. In the spring, there are musicians that perform on the streets in downtown. There is a drum circle that anyone who enjoys playing or dancing would love. There is also many quaint romantic restaurants and bakeries where I and my Fiance have enjoyed many a quiet evening.

My favorite place is downtown. There are several bakeries and restaurants there that are romantic. There is a music hall that doubles as a small bar. There are also many good museums.
