Galleries, arts and crafts studios, cafes, and fine restaurants--all nestled within the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains, and the recreational opportunities they have to offer--make visitors to Asheville, North Carolina, not only enjoy their vacation, but leaves them wanting to come back again and again. Begin your North Carolina road trip by heading east out of town on the gorgeous Blue Ridge Parkway, the scenic highway that crests the southern Appalachian Mountains. You'll get a true feel for the beauty of Asheville and its surroundings this way. On your way back, visit the Folk Art Center (also on the Blue Ridge Parkway) for traditional and contemporary Southern Appalachian arts and crafts. Asheville's Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa is heaven for fans of the Arts & Crafts era, while the 250-room Biltmore Estate, with its fine art, 65 fireplaces, winery, and lush gardens, is a good way to conclude this Asheville, North Carolina road trip.
