The City of Asheville is a vibrant, eclectic community which has been called both the "Paris of the South" and the "place to live in the Eastern US". Every week guests come to town to participate in the “Asheville experience”…and after two or three fun-filled days, they realize that they have barely scratched the surface.
However you describe it, this beautiful and festive city surprises virtually everyone with its vibrant energy, weekly festivals, and dynamic culture celebrating music, food, art, and the outdoors.
Surrounded by picturesque mountains, streams and lakes, it provides the perfect environment for a quiet vacation getaway, a romantic honeymoon, or anniversary celebration.
In 2007, Asheville was named one of the top seven places to live in the U.S. by Frommer's “Cities Ranked and Rated”. The area provides a colorful palette of activities ranging from Asheville's signature attraction, the Biltmore Estate and Gardens, to an impressive list of appealing experiences.
