Fall Trip Questions

by MHBacker

My wife and I are planning a trip to the Asheville area in October and spending approximately 8 days. Is there a best time to see fall colors? Considering the many things to do and see we are wondering whether we should base our whole time in Asheville and take day trips or split it between Boone or someplace else? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also any recommendations for restaurants. We are foodies and enjoy new experiences.

Hi - there's currently a "North Carolina" thread from Friday going that you might want to check out as it discusses some of this.

I'd definitely recommend heading to the high country - Boone and that area. Grandfather Mountain is a must see and peak fall color is Oct 5-25. I just returned last weekend and have been hard at work on my tips if you'd like to take a look. Have a great trip!

Definitely see the Biltmore estate.

There is also the little town of Cherokee that has a nice living history museum done by the Cherokee Indians. It is near the national park entrance. Biltmore Estate is wonderful and you should plan an entire day to just wander around it. The Blue Ridge Parkway is very pretty but can be annoying if you get behind a really slow vehicle as there are few places to pass. Another interesting place to visit is Carl Sandburg's home. There are also some darling pygmy goats on his estate that will keep you entertained with their antics.

Here are a few restaurants that I have enjoyed. They are all local establishments and delicious.

Salsa's - Mex Caribe food. Very unique combinations that I wouldn't have thought of but are delicious. This tiny restaurant is on Patton Ave. just near the intersection of Patton and Biltmore, right downtown.

Jerusalem Garden - Mediterranean (sp?) food. Actually, this is my favorite. I am an absolute sucker for lamb. Some evenings, they feature belly dancing. This restaurant is also on Patton Ave. but is further west than Salsa's. It is also fairly small.

Early Girl Eatery - they feature local and fresh produce when they can, and serve authentic southern dishes with an updated twist. Lots of vegetarian options as well, but not solely vegetarian. They are located on Wall Street, which is in a delightful area to stroll around and enjoy the street musicians.

Hope you have a great trip and enjoy our wonderful mountain area!

Travel Tips for Asheville

469 miles through the Appalachians

by KaiM

The Blue Ridge Parkway has 22 million visitors each year. That is more than any other park of the US National Park system. The first part of the Parkway opened more than 60 years ago. Today the scenic road is 469 miles long from Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to Great Smoky Mountains National in North Carolina.

One of the most beautiful parts of the Blue Ridge Parkway is in the Asheville region. Forest-covered mountains, a curvy road, rocks and rivers. The elevation varys from 650 to nearly 6,050 feet. Roadside are more than 300 miles of hiking trails.

To get more information, brochures and maps you should enter one of the twelve visitor centers along the Parkway. I went to the visitor center northeast of Asheville. Another good source for information is the website www.blueridgeparkway.org

by americanwildchild

There is this cute little street garden on Lexington Avenue that is nice to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee and chat with a friend...

I especially like this location in the fall, when it is windy, chilly and colored leaves are blowing around the tables...Something you would only find in the east....or maybe Oregon?

Sadly, Vincents Ear is no longer there...A great place for punk and metal, a PBR and an extra strong cup of coffee. It is sorely missed in our town.

by acemj

The culture in Asheville is a mix of friendly southern hospitality and funky, rebellious and artistic. It's where a mellow, nature-loving, hip hippie would live (yes, I wrote 'hip hippie').

Here's a picture of me takin' it easy at the Biltmore Estate.

Biltmore Estate 'What the locals know!'

by bobblefrog

We found that if you are the first to arrive in the mornings - say around 9 or 10, if you go to the gardens first you can have them practically to yourself. Most tourists go straight onto the house first. Since the house is pretty much just a jawdropping shuffle through state of awe it doesn't matter if you get there first, or get caught up in a line.

The rose garden though is magnificent. To have it all to yourself in the morning, with just a gardener or two pruning and snipping quietly down at the far end, you can almost imagine you are a Vanderbilt yourself, wandering the grounds. Obviously having all those huge gardens empthy is good for taking photos as well!

If you venture past, and on down by the ponds though? Be sure you have mosquito spray on you. You'll be into them before you know it and it's uphill trying to get back out!

There's also a parking lot behind the nursery which you will pass as you leave the estate. You can buy plants and then load them up on the way out. As locals we buy the year round pass and when we feel so inclined but we often go in past the parking lots and straight through to park at the nursery. But it's limited spots - don't do that if you are going to be doing the house tour.

If you are budget minded and you like picnics, consider bringing your own. If you can squeeze in the estate and gardens before lunch - head back to you car. As the drive takes you on to the winery (and later out of the estate) it passes by a lovely quiet picnic area by the river. You may have to share it with some geese and ducks, but the estate people don't mind you doing a picnic hamper.

Biltmore Estate has alot to offer. If you are going to be in town a few days? Buy one of those year passes (they aren't expensive) and plan on coming severaldays in row, but just for a few hours. The house one day, the gardens the next, the winery and all the other things after that.

Finally - consider the behind the scene's tour if you have time and extra money for a little extra off-the-beaten-path punch.

Christmas year round

by matcrazy1 about A Christmas Past

I love all these American colorful Christmas shops which are to my surprise usually open year round. They always make me feel like at family home. This one in the Stable area next to the Biltmore House is quite large and offers ubelievable choice of Christmas ornaments and music. I thought about CDs with classical American Christmas songs. There are also numerous charming old-fashionable Christmas ornaments. Well, these CDs cost a lot in my opinion: over $15 for about 30 min. CD. Generally all Christmas ornaments are much more expensive in the USA than in Poland :-(.
