Suggestions for Asheville, NC

by Kim H » Mon Aug 14, 2023 8:18 am

We're hitting the Biltmore as I've never been. I'd like to experience some of the Art/Craft scene I hear so much about, but not sure the best way to approach that or where to go. Also would love restaurant suggestions of course, esp for dinner (not too $$) TIA :-)

You are welcome! Please report back after your trip. Love to hear where you ended up going. Also, I forgot to address the arts/crafts part of the question but we love to walk around the River Arts District in West Asheville. Lots of studios/artists to check out. Stop by Wedge Studios for a beer if you are into that, most days they have a food truck out back as well. If you do end up down there, definitely check out Mother Bread and Wine - they are open Thurs-Sun. It's a tiny little spot with amazing bread. Grab a slab of their focaccia of the day or a sourdough pretzel. Super small, super cute. Highly recommend. I've only been once but had a slab of pistachio, ricotta and lemon focaccia that I still can't stop thinking about months later. lol

Thanks, Heather, I'll definitely try to check out Mother Bread, you have me curious. The River Arts district sounds like the type of place we're looking for there. Do you know if that is also where they hold the drum circle? A friend of mine told me about that, and I was hoping it would be in an area we were already going to be exploring since our time there is limited. Thank you again, I'll let you know how it goes!

No, the drum circle is in Pritchard Park which is downtown.
