Since Asheville is not a long drive we try to go up a few times a year, mostly when it’s cooler and day hikes are enjoyable. Whether we go for a concert, hiking, brewery visits or just to get out of town there is always more to do than the time we have.
A lovely walk around downtown Asheville visiting the vendors at the Farmer’s Market is something we just recently started doing. We met up with a friend last time and he gave us the rundown on his usuals. I will happily be back with a cooler bag next time.
Some friends of ours have traveled with us to see shows, most notably Primus at Highland Brewing on the lawn. It was rainy, cold and totally the best show I’ve been to in a while.
Found a place that served tacos and sushi, called Takosushi, pretty much a dream come true right? While I admire the goal of having the two under one roof I think I like them separate. We also made a stop at Rocky’s Hot Chicken. It was my first time there and wow was it amazing. Then for breakfast of course, we always go to Biscuithead.
There is a plethora of craft breweries in Asheville. It is hard to visit all in one weekend but we try our hardest. Eurisko, Burial, Sierra Nevada, Zebulon, and Greenman are just a few must-do’s.
When in the mountains, you hike. Spending a few hours in the woods hiking is one of the best activities. Learning how much your body can stand while looking out at amazing views. Priceless.
