• The Blue Ridge Parkway and the Biltmore House.
  • No but I have always wanted to see Biltmore Estates.
  • I have stayed at both the Biltmore Inn and Grove Park Estate and Asheville has much to see and do with lots of festivals and events throughout the year. A truly eclectic, comfy, and beautiful mountain city, Asheville is so inviting, you can explore Mother Nature and all her beauty, hike on the Appalachian Trail or along the Blue Ridge Parkway, see magnificent views and take in crisp mountain air. Art galleries, restaurants, businesses and shops of all types make up the heart of Asheville. The Vance Monument stands proudly at center stage with many great places surrounding it, including Pack Place , The Fine Arts Theatre and Cafe on the Square & the Thomas Wolfe Memorial. There's nearby Grandfather Mountain , Chimney Rock Park and Linville Cavern for outdoors while Connemara, Pack Place and Harrah's Cherokee Casino cater to indoor fun! Browse the local Farmer's Market or do Bele Chere which is one of the biggest outdoor events in the Southeast. The entire downtown area of Asheville is blocked off with stages, food vendors, & rides. Free concerts can be heard in June and July during the University of North Carolina Concerts on the Quad and the beginning of summer is celebrated with “Moonlight Over Downtown,” and “Downtown After Five” directly follows. These events consist of free live concerts, with food and drinks available
  • I have never been there, Misstarrie..but I believe it is the center of fine furniture production..If you love beautiful furniture, I think Asheville has many manufacturing companies that may provide tours. I think North Carolina also has many great golfcourses if that is your cup of tea.
  • Native American tribes.
  • Asheville is one of the most gorgeous places in the states. You will be amazed at how large it is when you pull in, because you can't see most of it from the highway due to the mountains. There are the standard "touristy" things to do, like the Biltmore, etc... I find the most joy in avoiding these things and just experiencing the "Americana"... On the South side of Highway 40 (to which you get to via tunnel from the North side) are a lot of sidewalk cafes and art galleries. Eat your dinners in the older, "Mom and Pop" diners and restaurants and avoid the chains like "outback steakhouse" and "Applebees"... You can get those in Tunica. Asheville is a wonderfully diverse mixture of cultures, art, fine cuisine and people. It is one of my favorite places in the whole world, and I wish I were going with you.
