Last week we spent 4 days and 3 nights in Asheville. Asheville is one of our favorite weekend getaways since it’s only about 2 hours from Charlotte and Mike and I go often. This trip, we were joined by Mike’s mom and dad and his brother William. We had an awesome time and went to lots of great spots so I’m sharing a recap of our trip and some recommendations below!
We stayed in a loft on College Street this time – it was the PERFECT location for anyone interested in this property! We did not drive our car once at night because we could walk to all the restaurants and bars. Several of you asked for the link to the rental site on InstaStories, so here it is.
The first night we ate at Cúrate which is hands-down my favorite restaurant in Asheville and would top my list of all-time favorites anywhere, as well. As you can probably tell from the name, it’s Spanish so there are wonderful tapas as well as spanish wines.
The next day we headed over to see The Biltmore Estate. At 175,000 square feet, 34 bedrooms and 65 fireplaces, the Biltmore is the largest private house in the US. You can tour most of it!
The really stunning part of the Biltmore to me is the gardens – there are a few miles of manicured gardens and a huge greenhouse which are all so pretty!
There is also an extensive network of hiking trails on the property, which I wish we’d had more time for…
But we had to get to the breweries! Next up was Sierra Nevada which is located not far outside of Asheville and is worth the drive!
That night we went to dinner at Table which I’d also highly recommend!
The next day we did a family hike up to Craggy’s Pinnacle – everyone including Bishop, William’s dog!
After the hike we headed to lunch at Wicked Weed Brewing. Both Wicked Weed and Sierra Nevada have really good food, if you want to find beer and food in one spot!
The rooftop bar at the AC Marriott is a great spot to grab a drink for happy hour or after dinner.
This is just a fraction of the places I’d recommend in Asheville, but I’m sure you’ll continue to see more posts from me on this location! 😀
For those of you who have been, where do you like to go and do there? I’d love to know!
