Asheville, NC Suggestions?

I would like to let everyone know that I just love all of the blogs and great information that everyone posts. Facebook is a pasttime for me thanks to IRV2. Steve and I are headed out in a few weeks to Ashville, NC and would love to know if anyone has any suggestions on what to see while we are there.

Welcome to IRV2 forums. You have come to the right place for info and some good people. I would definately visit the Biltmore. We went and toured the Greystone Manor( I think that was the name) They had a picture history of the building of the hotel and a few shops. The Cheroke reservation and Maggie Valley are not too far from Ashville. It really depends on what you like to do. Enjoy your trip.

The Biltmore Estate for sure. Take a side trip down 26 to Hendersonville. Walk the street downtown and see the shops. Don't miss the Fresh Market on the south end of town. If you have time, take a trip over to Black Mountain. While there be sure and stop in My Father's Pizza for lunch. That alone will make the trip worthwhile. If time allows, take a drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway to see the sight. For another scenic drive, take US 65 west out of Hendersonville over to Lake Toxaway, Cashiers, Highlands into Franklin. Then take 441 north to Cherokee. US 19 east will take you through Maggie Valley and to I-40 back to Asheville. Lots to do in Asheville and surrounding area.

I just got back from Asheville last week. My SO's lifelong ambition was to putz around downtown Asheville. Well I won't have to hear about that anymore. Anyway (remember I'm Scots/irish) we heard that the Biltmore event is $40 per head and that the colorful tour trolley in Asheville is $20 per head. I agree with everyone else about Cherokee and Hendersonville but would add that the area is a concentration of waterfalls (Transylvania county) and quaint little towns (Brevard with it's unique white squirells). What I liked best was camping on the French Broad River. And the choices from a lot of campgrounds. Have fun.
