We were only in Asheville for a day so we were looking for something to do till the brewery's opened. After reading several great reviews I thought we would check it out. I found it rather boring and not very educational. The map we got...More

During our stop at the Asheville visitor center, one of the hosts gave us a brochure for the urban trail. Very happy that he did. Between the brochure and the plaques along the trail, we were able to learn about Asheville's history, while being led...More
