Land of the Sky

Asheville nestles between two major mountain ranges in the scenic western section of North Carolina.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Clingmans Dome, Tom's Creek Falls and The North Carolina Arboretum. Bring the kids along to Titanic Museum Attraction and Dollywood. Get some historical perspective at Noah Bud Ogle Cabin and Riverside Cemetery. Venture out of the city with trips to Gatlinburg (Fowler's Clay Works, Sugarlands Distilling Company, &more), Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Little Greenbrier School, Walker Sisters' Cabin, &more) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Hartford). Spend the 13th (Thu) exploring nature at Kings Mountain National Military Park. And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica of Saint Lawrence, view the masterpieces at Lexington Glassworks, and get a taste of the local shopping with New Morning Gallery.
