Asheville, NC- what we did

We visited the Biltmore! It was nice to see, impressive, and educational! I’m not sure I could go back season after season like some people do, but I’m glad we had the experience.

Where we stayed in Asheville

Dave found the cutest little spot for us to stay. It was within walking distance of downtown, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and duck donuts (what more could you want? 🙂 ) This was the house, but you walk around the house… Follow the sign for the garden apartment… And here’s our place! Dave booked it…
