As one of the largest cities on the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Asheville is rich in natural beauty and urban amenities. Having more than 250 rooms, the Biltmore Estate is arguably Asheville's most iconic landmark and one of the largest mansions in the United States. After exploring the Châteauesque architecture of the Biltmore Estate, you can look at the Queen Anne facade of the Thomas Wolfe House, the birthplace of a prominent American novelist.
Once you land at Asheville Regional Airport (AVL), make arrangements to drive northbound on Interstate 26 and reach Asheville. When you book a room near Pack Square downtown, you'll wake up to the sight of the Jackson Building, North Carolina's first skyscraper. If you prefer waterfront lodging in some of the quiet parts of Asheville, consider staying in a hotel along the French Broad River. A fun way to explore the outskirts of the city is to cruise along the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway and follow the signs to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Situated at an elevation of more than 2,100 feet, Asheville experiences cold winters that bring plenty of snowfall. During the warm summers in the Land of the Sky, you could enjoy a stroll past ferns and mosses that grow in the Botanical Gardens at Asheville. Asheville has played a key role in the development of Bluegrass music, so expect to hear the sounds of fiddles and banjos in local bars and lounges.
