~Visitor Bit!~ 

The press will tell you to visit the Greater Asheville area for our wonderful amenities—from the cultural to the “natural." Here's a "Visitor Bit" as a start from the perspective of one who lives here and feels very lucky...(more to come soon!)


Hiking in the forests ranks high on my list of favorite things, especially when the wildflowers begin to peek out at this time of year. The cascades and waterfalls are “noisy” now, and so are the birds. But it’s a joyous noise. Here’s a link to the North Carolina National Forests site If you go there, this site might help you to decide where you’d like to listen first!

Maybe you are attracted to education, research, conservation, and even gardening advice and plant sciences. If so, I know a wonderful 426-acre site is nestled in one of the most beautiful natural settings in the United States. Mountain peaks bound the property's visual perimeters and 1.8 miles of the Bent Creek stream run through this place. It is the Arboretum. Here you can take a glorious nature walk. The NC Arboretum close to Asheville and great for a single person or a family to visit.

If you yearn for waterscapes and adventure, the Nantahala Outdoor Center on the way out to the French Broad rafting areas might satisfy you. You can fly down the River on exciting rafting trips, with the skilled help of guides!

If flying down the River doesn’t attract you, how about a nice leisurely drive on the amazing Blue Ridge Parkway ?
