Since 1999 I wanted to visit Asheville, North Carolina. I had never been there and I’m not sure why I wanted to go. In fact when I graduated from Western State College in Gunnision, Colorado I had full intentions of packing up my 87 Tercel and driving east with my dog Summit. Destination: Asheville, North Carolina. I can’t tell you what was pulling me there but I can tell you that I never made it. I got a job as a reporter for a small paper in Denver and never looked back.
My husband and I moved to the Raleigh area about 2 years ago and visited Asheville for our 5 year wedding anniversary. It was a whirlwind weekend of hiking, eating and well….more eating. This started my love affair with the city.
Everything that you read or hear about this lovely gem is true. The food is great, the vibe is brilliant and people are fantastic. In fact I would move there tomorrow. I have lots of little stories to tell about our weekend getaway but will write up some personal reviews about our weekend in another post. In a nutshell, Asheville is a great place to go for a romantic weekend without the kids. But it’s also a fantastic family spot.
This is kind of my push to get that going. *insert* smile.
