The Asheville Chamber of Commerce has just published an interesting Bucket List for Asheville that has some interesting suggestions. We thought we would pass along this information to former and future guests at our Asheville Bed and Breakfast. Someone at the Chamber does have an interesting sense of humor, as they emphasize that you need to act now. According to the Mayan Calendar, life as we know it will come to an end this year. So you need to get your bucket list in order now in case “we find ourselves struggling to survive the zombie apocalypse.”
These are some of our favorite suggestions.
- Dine blind by signing up for one of Asheville’s great restaurants, where they have a special Chef’s Table. Horizons at the Grove Park Inn would be a great choice.
- Become an artist by signing up at one of Asheville’s many studios in the River Arts District. Learn to paint your own masterpiece or make beautiful pottery.
- Conquer the oldest mountains in the world. Get off-road and enjoy the Land Rover experience at The Biltmore Estate.
- Witness nature’s Majesty. Head over to Cataloochee from our Asheville Bed and Breakfast after partaking in a decadent 3-course Breakfast. You can view dozens of Elk roaming in the fields and enjoying the beautiful mountain valley.
- Go VIP this year and spring for the best seats at one of Asheville’s music venues, such as The Orange Peel. Plan to attend one or more of 15 major festivals in the area.
- Make a toast as you sample your way through Asheville, Beer City USA, with the unique Brews Cruise. Your driver will hit all of the brewery hot spots (there are 10 microbreweries now). The popular Winter Warmer Beer Festival takes place in a week.
- And Finally. Stand on top of the world as you ahead to Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi River. This is a true refuge for those wanting to get away from it all. Stay at the 1889 WhiteGate Inn and drive to Mt. Mitchell, exactly an hour drive from our Asheville Bed and Breakfast along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
