Around the Area

Once you’ve finished the Park, check out these things to do in Asheville and beyond.



Let’s assume it’s even possible you’ve hiked all the Chimney Rock trails you could, seen all the autumn leaves, and all the North Carolina mountain vistas your eyes can hold. And now you’re ready for more. But more driving? Drag. So don’t go. Well, far at least. Our nearby neighbors are full of Hollywood stars, intriguing craftspeople, artists from the strange to the standard, and lots more. We hate to see you go, but if you must, go to our local friends.
