Things To Do In Asheville, North Carolina: Your Guide To The Best Outdoors
Asheville, North Carolina, is definitely known for its microbreweries, with new craft beer houses opening all the time. But the Blue Ridge Mountain town is also filled with an insane amount of outdoor adventure experiences that make for just as enticing a reason to visit. And since the two often go hand-in-hand, a visit to Asheville is a double win for anyone who enjoys a cold brew after a day playing in the great outdoors. From some of the country's highest and longest zip lines to world-class hiking along the Blue Ridge Parkway, all of which are just minutes from the downtown core, here are my seven picks for enjoying the outdoors in this fun, laid-back town.
My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
