Asheville, NC Moments | Mountain Weekend 2018
This year for spring break some friends and I went down to Asheville, NC for a mountain weekend. Asheville is a funky, little town nestled inside the Blue Ridge Mountains. It’s known for it’s friendly people, plethora of breweries and quirky history.
Our group rented a cabin in Old Fort, which is about 30 minutes from downtown Asheville. The trip was short and sweet- the perfect getaway from my last semester. Below are a few of my favorite moments and photos from our trip!
This is the best mimosa I’ve ever had. If you’re in Asheville you have to go to Battery Park Book Exchange. This quirky book shop has it all- unique books, champagne and cheese plates. It’s the perfect spot to share a bottle with friends or start a new book alone.
While I loved this picture- this hike was not my favorite. My group went into this hike after stumbling upon it. To say we didn’t know what we were getting into is an understatement. Biggest piece of advice- Google your hike before you go. Don’t end up sweaty, miserable and in pain like I was .
This pasta along with everything else on the Eating Asheville food tour, was incredible. I love doing food tours when visiting a city. They’re such a fun way to get to know a city and it’s food! Eating Asheville was the best food tour I’ve ever been on- don’t miss out! If you can’t make the food tour at least go to Strada and get the grilled ravioli.
This was the hike I was waiting for! This easy, little hike was about 2 miles and led to this beautiful view. If you’re in the Asheville area Catawba Falls is beautiful, family friendly and has a lot to explore.
I love architecture and The Biltmore did not disappoint. However, I found it very hard to photograph inside because it was so dark. The home was stunning and I’m glad our group decided to go at the last minute.
This is one of the only plants flowering the Biltmore gardens. I would love to go back during the spring because I’m a flower fiend. The Biltmore may not be everyone’s cup of tea but it’s a great piece of American history (and the wine tasting can’t be beat!)
