Blue Ridge Parkway. You've probably heard about the Blue Ridge Parkway the 469-mile stretch that spans from the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina to Virginia. What you might not know is that it is headquartered in Asheville. Milepost 384 is where the main visitor center of the Blue Ridge Parkway rests. The parkway allows for a 45 mph speed maximum. The parkway offers many great stops along the way in the form of pull-offs that encourage drivers to witness the beauty of the scenery that surrounds them. You'll find hiking and biking trails littered throughout, making for easy places to stretch your legs and get some exercise during the long drive. Small towns are also great stops along the way for a meal or to take in the scenery. The Blue Ridge Parkway is busiest in the fall months because of the beautiful leaves as they turn color in the fall. Mid-summer is also a good time to visit if you want a less crowded but still enriching vacation experience. Even better, mid-summer is when a lot of blooming flowers can be seen dotting the parkway, such as azaleas, rhododendrons, and laurels.

True to the free-spirited nature of Asheville, the River Arts District is made up of 22 buildings of historical or previous industrial purposes. You'll find a cotton mill, a tannery, and all sorts of other fascinating spaces by the French Broad River filling the district with an old-fashioned atmosphere, offset by the modernity of the art found. Walking through the River Arts District you can see works created by over 200 different artists, ranging from paintings to ceramics and from photography to textiles. You'll even find hand-crafted jewelry and more lovely souvenirs, and you might even get to meet some of the artists behind them.
