Historic & Green in Asheville, NC
By Deborah S. Nelson, Author/Publisher VRTG
Asheville, NC draws a diverse and well-rounded group of vacationers each year. However, this North Carolina city tends to attract the lovers of history, nature, art and cuisine. Why? First, because Asheville, NC holds the keys to many legendary Civil War tales. The breathtaking nineteenth century Biltmore Estate once owned by the Vanderbilt family, is set here.
In addition, you may want to hop on and off trolleys to learn the secrets of Asheville’s most historic landmarks. Yet, you may also decide to explore the town on foot. When walking, you are able to find more of the magical places you tend to miss when whizzing by on wheels. Plus, Asheville offers scenic areas such as the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Pisgah National Forest, and the Appalachian Trail. These parks are, of course, ideal for an endless array of outdoor activities. For example, you may hike, bike, horseback ride, swim, or zip line. Or, you may even get married there!
