Asheville: Sample Arty Appalachian Culture
1 of 21
Award-winning microbreweries are sprinkled throughout Asheville, North Carolina
Why Go Now: Get a taste of Asheville while it still feels local and before it goes global. On the edge of the alluring Smoky Mountains, the food and drink scene of the recently dubbed "Beer City USA" is the perfect compliment to the scenery. You'll find over 30 galleries and 20 music venues devoted to everything from folk pieces to modern mash-ups.
Where to Stay: The Inn on Biltmore Estate, a gilded-age resort set on an 800-acre Vanderbilt estate, even tempts day trippers to stay overnight. For something more modern (and compact), the Hotel Indigo opened a 100-room boutique property downtown just over a year ago. With a colorful interior and artsy details, it's also within walking distance of the new Pack Square Park.
Insider Tip: Check out Live Wire before you go to plan your nightly entertainment.
