Asheville nestles between two major mountain ranges in the scenic western section of North Carolina.
Venture out of the city with trips to DuPont State Recreational Forest (in Cedar Mountain), Miller's Land of Waterfall Tours (in Rosman) and Marshall (French Broad Adventures & Horseback Riding Tours). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Biltmore, shop like a local with New Morning Gallery, learn the secrets of beer at BREW-ed, and sample the tasty concoctions at Bold Rock Hard Cider.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Asheville travel route planner.
