Asheville nestles between two major mountain ranges in the scenic western section of North Carolina.
You've now added Amazing Pubcycle to your itinerary. Discover out-of-the-way places like Basilica of Saint Lawrence and Mount LeConte.

The adventure continues: take in the exciting artwork at Grovewood Village, whizz through the canopy at Asheville Zipline Canopy Adventures, shop like a local with Lexington Glassworks, and look for gifts at Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar.

The Tar Heel State
A top destination for a holiday in nature, North Carolina provides a seemingly endless variety of outdoor activities, including hiking, mountain climbing, and skiing. While the state's rural regions offer a taste of traditional Appalachian music and culture, its increasingly diverse big cities feature modern skyscrapers, renowned museums, and historical neighborhoods perfect for sightseeing tours. The coastal region, famous for its year-round temperate climate, attracts millions of annual visitors, making North Carolina the sixth most-visited state in the country. Though it's hard to find a quiet time of year in coastal North Carolina, the state's inland areas retain many secluded corners where you can experience the laid-back Old South atmosphere.
