All that separates Charlotte-area residents from Asheville is a roughly two-hour drive, but you’ll feel worlds away once you arrive in the mountain city.
Asheville’s eclectic downtown features dozens of galleries, unique locally-owned shops and a vibrant restaurant scene, all set against the backdrop of the Appalachian Mountains. The area is also home to 11 craft breweries and a thriving live music scene.
If you’re looking for a more low-key getaway, you can find it in one of Asheville’s resorts or day spas. The city’s reputation as a destination for spa treatments dates back to the 1700s, when one of the East Coast’s only natural hot spring water sources was discovered. Today, visitors can experience a variety of treatments and wellness services, as well as yoga classes and retreats.
