If you’re into eating locally and supporting sustainable agriculture, go to Asheville—and eat, eat, eat. This town of less than 100,000 people has 17 farmers’ markets, and the local restaurant scene is all about taking advantage of the seasonal produce sold there. And don’t miss the area’s microbreweries.
Asheville’s welcoming nature and friendly ways are as enticing as the surrounding natural beauty and distinctive vibe of our culture. We share our Asheville promise for life-enriching experiences through the voices of our community – from buskers and chefs to artists, brewers, and outdoor guides, and from hoteliers to musicians and boutique shop owners. Our warm and accepting community is at the heart of the spirit of Asheville.
