Asheville Hotels

The mid-size city of Asheville, based at the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains in Buncombe County, North Carolina, is a chilled-out urban haven full of stellar architecture, art galleries, and booming live music bars. This green city is surrounded by deep forests and hilly parks - perfect for hiking - creating a lush, eden-like backdrop. Asheville also has a strong local tradition of fairs, festivals, and performing arts events, often taking place throughout the golden summer season.

Things to see

Begin your peaceful Asheville morning by taking in some of the city’s proud independent art galleries. There are plenty to choose from, but the Southern Highland Craft Guild Folk Art Center is a perfect and popular place to start. This specialty museum showcases traditional and contemporary Appalachian folk art, from centuries-old crafts to surreal modern sculptures. Serious art-fiends may want to visit the River Arts District afterwards - an off-beat collection of local studios and galleries. Later in the day, architecture-appreciators will want to see the opulent Biltmore Estate, a huge Chateauesque complex built in 1889. Today, you can tour this palace-like manor, and its vast flower-flecked grounds - there are even wine tasting activities onsite. If you’re after real outdoor adventure, visit the Blue Ridge Parkway, a stretch of mountainous forestland - stippled with lakes and lashed with waterfalls - that arcs around Asheville. The Parkway’s great for a scenic drive, and there’s plenty of hiking opportunities too.

Where to stay

Stay in the small but buzzing Downtown area of Asheville to get an all-round quintessential experience of the city’s artsy atmosphere. Here, hip cafes line up beside live-music bars, and quaint local restaurants compliment bijou boutiques. There are also a few small but idyllic public parks that take the edge of the electrifying urban vibe. For a more residential area, stay in West Asheville. This neighborhood is still flush with restaurants and bars, but with less touristy crowds. Those who want a taste of traditional southern living should stay in the Montford Area, a quiet historic neighborhood rich with old-fashioned B&Bs and inns.

How to get to Asheville

The Asheville Regional Airport is based just 15 miles south of Downtown, and serves a handful of handy domestic flights from top US airports like Atlanta, Chicago, and Charlotte. If you’re flying from overseas, you’ll likely fly to Charlotte Douglas International Airport - which serves many key international destinations - and catch a quick 50 minute connecting flight to Asheville Regional. There’s excellent ground transportation at the airport - including taxis, car rentals, and public buses. Once in Asheville, you’ll find that driving is a great way of getting around, as the city provides plenty of parking.
