Asheville

— 6 nights

Land of the Sky

Asheville nestles between two major mountain ranges in the scenic western section of North Carolina.
Change things up with these side-trips from Asheville: Hendersonville (Slick Rock Country Emporium, Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards, &more), Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park (in Chimney Rock) and Lake Lure (Lake Lure & Zipline). There's still lots to do: sample some tasty brews at BREW-ed, explore the striking landscape of The North Carolina Arboretum, examine the collection at Asheville Pinball Museum, and get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour.

To see reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, read Asheville trip itinerary planner.

Traveling by car from Morganton to Asheville takes an hour. Expect a daytime high around 58°F in March, and nighttime lows around 36°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) to allow time to fly back home.
