PLANNING YOUR TRIP
Asheville, also referred to as “the Paris of the south” is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, or Smoky Mountains, of Western North Carolina. Asheville, andthe beautiful surrounding region, offers many amenities and enjoyable activities to keep you occupied before and after your race at the Asheville Marathon & Half. There are many things to do in the area, take your pick from fantastic restaurants and micro breweries, outdoor sports and activities, terrific antique and furniture malls, fine and rustic arts and crafts museums and galleries, and much more. Asheville is a very laid back and walkable city with lovely vintage architecture to discover. Branching out, explore Biltmore Village and its elite shops, wander the Grove Park Inn with it’s iconic roof, craft gallery and Spa, and wind through the mountains on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
