destination: asheville, nc

On Saturday I booked a long weekend with the husband to Asheville, NC over Memorial Day weekend.  Now that we both have reliable cars, we had to buy 2 new cars within a month of each other, we both knew we wanted Asheville to be the destination of our first 2014 road trip.  I booked our 3 night stay through Airbnb and found this place that boasts of beautiful views of the mountains from the screened in porch while swinging from hammocks and only a 10 minute drive from downtown.  That price and location was too perfect of a fit for the husband and I to pass up.  We spent a little time last night researching things to do.  We both agreed Biltmore Estates and Blue Ridge Parkway are must sees but are obviously open to suggestions.  We are pretty excited for our long weekend and to have something to look forward to.

  1. I've never been to Asheville, but a childhood book series I loved was centered there, so, I've always wanted to visit. Have a great time!

  2. I haven't been to Asheville, or even North Carolina for that matter, but both are firmly on my travel wishlist. I'm sure you'll love it! That airbnb house sounds like a dream. Lovely finding you through the Travel Tuesday linkup! xx

  3. I haven't been to Asheville since I was a kid and can't remember it well. The mountains are lovely and I am sure you'll enjoy Biltmore. Have a fun trip!


I love hearing from y'all. Comments are my favorite!
