Asheville Holidays​

Tucked away among the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina, Asheville lures visitors with its natural beauty, thriving arts scene and historic charms. Asheville is renowned for its unique culture, health-conscious vibe, eclectic food and craft beer scene and welcoming spirit. Home to just 85,000 people, Asheville has continued to grow since its founding in 1784.

Originally falling within the boundaries of the Cherokee Nation, Asheville's development can be found on the streets of its historic district and collection of Victorian style homes. Industrial barons and the nation's wealthy discovered the beauty of the region, and chose the area to establish winter residences. Today, more than 9 million visitors come and experience the area's hospitality annually. Visitors can tour America's largest privately owned home, Biltmore, which today is still run by the Vanderbilt family and features a 250-room mansion, opulent gardens, winery and numerous outdoor activities.

Named one of the best cities in America for outdoor activities and for active-lifestyle visitors, Asheville also provides a number of options to enjoy the spectacular surrounding scenery. Rafting, fly-fishing, ziplining, road cycling, hiking, trail running, mountain biking – all of these activities are available here. Explore the expansive natural beauty of Pisgah National Forest and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or drive one of the America's most scenic motor roads, the Blue Ridge Parkway.

With all that mountain air to work up an appetite, it’s not surprising that dining is serious business in Asheville, where the foodtopian society offers a culinary paradise. Here you'll find a thriving farm-to-fork mentality, a beloved community of tailgate markets, and restaurants with cuisines that range from Italian and French to New South and Caribbean. A different flavour experience awaits you on every corner. Dine al fresco, eat upscale or nosh on artisanal chocolates. Whatever you choose, you’ll have a stunning mountain backdrop.

Biltmore

A towering monument to America’s Gilded Age, Biltmore House is a sumptuous 250-room mansion set in 8,000 acres of grounds. It was built by George Washington Vanderbilt II, who fell in love with the scenery and climate of the area and decided to commission a summer house or ‘little mountain escape’ in the style of the great châteaux of France. You can take one of a number of tours here or drop in at the Biltmore Winery, the most visited winery in the United States.

Downtown

Asheville's eclectic downtown hums with art galleries and street musicians, sidewalk dining, nationally recognised independent bookstores, craft breweries and bakeries for canines. The heart of the city is a living testament to community's mountain-born spirit of independence – independent businesses, independent people, and singular beauty. Yet, for all its unique offerings, Asheville's downtown resonates with the warmth and friendly charm of a walkable Southern town.


The Blue Ridge Parkway

Frequently referred to as ‘America’s Favourite Drive’, the Blue Ridge Parkway extends 469 miles and connects the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina with Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. Along this ‘avenue of exploration’, lie snowbound peaks, wetlands, hiking trails and wonderfully abundant flora and fauna.


The Arts

Art is everywhere in Asheville. Start under Lexington Avenue Bridge where you’ll find a multi-wall mural illustrating the city’s history, then head past the artistic graffiti on N Lexington to Chicken Alley where you can discover a homage to the local poultry and honeybee culture. Wrap up any art tour with a look around the RAD (Riverside Arts District) where local artists have their galleries and free community art is on show around every corner.


Music Heritage

Asheville has a long history with music, originating with traditional songs and tunes brought to the region by Scottish and Irish settlers. Over the years, the legends of what was once called "mountain music"--people like Jimmie Rodgers and Bill Monroe, contributed their own work to Asheville's cultural scene. These traditions mean that music is alive and well in Asheville with a toe-tapping busking scene, live music venues and a great calendar of music festivals to suit all tastes.
