Asheville, North Carolina in one day!

by ashamar18

Me and 3 other adults are going to Asheville, NC August 2007.
We are staying in South Carolina Upcountry for a week.
We want to visit Asheville one day out of our stay.
We want to see "Biltmore Estate" on that day but would like to venture out to " Downtown Asheville" for dinner. Any suggestions? No tourist traps pls.
Also since we have just have one day to vist Biltmore- is anybody out there who could tell me how to do it in that amt of time. What shd I really see and not waste my time seeing!
Any and all suggestions will be helpful. I would like to hear from people who live there or who have visited there. Thank you.

Biltmore itself has a small collections of nice shops and a great Art Gallery/Shop that you can walk to from the car park at the entrance of the Estate.

Dwontown has grown and changed a lot in the last 5-6 years. It is also walkable and you may just want to wander around to find a good restaurant.

The big restaurants (chains) are mostly on Tunnel Rd.

Have a great time!

The Estate will take the better part of the day. The main house is the thing to see. You'll enjoy it. When you head downtown, there are a number of great places. One place that most tourist enjoy it Tupelo Honey. You can't go wrong there. You'll have a number of great choices. Almost all of the places are worthwhile. They cater to tourists. I know you'll enjoy your time downtown, it's a special place.

Travel Tips for Asheville

Biltmore House. This was...

by Beachdave

Biltmore House. This was build in the early 1900s. It was built by a member of the Vanderbilt family. You can view the house, grounds and a winery. There is good shopping, great mountain views and festivals during the year that are very entertaining. They have, I forgot the name, which is held near the end of June that is celebrated all around downtown. It is outstanding entertainment, food, drink and shopping. They have on the Friday after Thanksgiving a event which they call 'First Light'. It is located in downtown Asheville in the government plaza. All the Christmas lights are lit uptown while fireworks are bursting behind the tall buildings. It is a sight that will take your breath away.

all that bluegrass...

by americanwildchild

While you stroll about downtown, you will hear talented musicians picking mandolins, ukeleles, banjos, guitars...whatever they can! The fiddle is always nice, and this girl sounded great. Some cities don't have the best street musicians. Ours are pretty good and worth tipping a dollar!!!

Blacksmith at work

by matcrazy1

I saw a demenstration of blacksmith's work in the Historic Horse Barn in the Biltmore Farm Village. It included forging and shaping iron with a hammer and anvil. The metal was heated until it glowed orange as part of the forging process. The blacksmith created small decorative element used for stair railing.

The forge, hammers, anvils and other blacksmithery tools were original from the turn of the 19th and 20th century. Some of them were originally used in Biltmore Estate Industries establish by the Vanderbilts in nearby Biltmore Village. I was surprised that this skilled blacksmith could make a good looking product that showed skill and ingenuity with the minimum amount of work and energy. it really was not that hard work. Well, air-condition would make work by a forge easier for sure.

Something very American?

by matcrazy1

Strolling around Asheville downtown I easily found a few blocks of red-brick houses with well preserved old commercial writings and names of various companies written on them. Some of these houses are a bit neglected and don't look to be inhabited but some are pretty renovated. Whenever I see something like this I think that these houses are very American (or maybe English as well?) remains of the industrial era and were built for workers, mainly poor farmers and immigrants who came and settled in Asheville in search for job, money and better life. Boring? Well, not for me as we don't have it in Poland.

While Asheville prospered in the 1910's and 1920's, the Great Depression of 1930's hit Asheville quite hard. Most of Asheville's banks closed. The "per capita" debt held by the city (through municipal bonds) was the highest of any city in the nation. Rather than default, the city paid those debts over a period of 50 years.

Biltmore flowers to buy

by matcrazy1 about A Gardener's Place

This place, left to the entrance to the Conservatory is full of potted plants and flowers cultivated by Biltmore gardeners. There are also various accesories, tools, and seeds for your garden.

Well, if you are not from the USA, keep in mind that you are not allowed to import any living plants to most of the countries unless you obtain special permission which often is difficult. I liked some beautiful orchids in bloom. Well, they are the largest and most diverse of the flowering plant families, with over 800 described genera and 25,000 species! Did you know?

I found potted plants much more expensive than in my homecountry, Poland. But I don't know whether it's typical for the USA or just Biltmore.
