Over the weekend, my girlfriend and I went to Asheville, Nc for a romantic getaway weekend. With only being about an hour away from where we live, we figured it was just far enough to feel like we “escaped” while at the same time not spending most of our time traveling. Once we got there, we went to see Biltmore Estates, bar hopped downtown, hiked in the mountains, and did a bike tour of the city. The one thing I must say about Asheville is this: it is absolutely gorgeous. I grew up in the Smoky Mountains, so I am used to beautiful mountain scenery, but Asheville is literally a city smack dab in the middle of the mountains. We could have not asked for a better trip. It definitely set the bar high for our future getaway trips and will definitely be returning in the future.
