Historic Marshall, NC is the very definition of the word “quaint.” Nestled between rocky cliffs and the scenic French Broad River, just 20 miles north of Asheville, it’s a unique mix of old and new. Main Street, lined with original buildings including the 100-year-old courthouse, is home to artists’ studios, galleries, music and dance venues and eclectic shops. The locals love Zuma on Main St. for it’s unbeatable coffee drinks and breakfast. Hang out a while and people watch, or swing by on a Wednesday or Thursday evening for dessert and live music. Dine in a refurbished former Gulf station at the intimate Star Diner serving upscale contemporary cuisine. A bridge takes you to Blannahassat Island, home to Marshall High Studios, which makes its home in a 1925 former high school. The studios draw area artists to showcase their wares in media such as leather, pottery, painting, and even houses a yoga studio and massage therapist. The island hosts the Marshall Farmers’ Market every Sunday as well.

Venturing further afield leads you to the vibrant city of Asheville, nestled among the Blue Ridge Mountains. Asheville is world-renowned for its diverse arts scene, eclectic restaurants and over thirty breweries (book one of the city’s many beer-centric tours that takes care of the transportation.)

The bustling downtown mixes early 20th century art deco buildings with newer hotels and apartments that creates a magical world that’s fun to explore on foot or by bicycle. Declared by locals and food critics alike a “foodtopia,” don’t be surprised to find your new favorite restaurant here. If you get overwhelmed by the choices (it’s okay, we do too!) sign up for a food tour with Asheville Food Tours, led by passionate local foodies,. Our top dining choices are Chestnut, for southern-inspired upscale creative cuisine and craft cocktails, and Curate for award-winning chef Katie Button’s take on Spanish tapas and small plates.

The expansive Biltmore Estate is also located in Asheville, so take a day to explore this beautiful French Chateau-style mansion with priceless artwork, stunning architecture, and sumptuous furnishings along with rambling gardens, miles of walking trails, and Biltmore’s own winery. Biltmore Village, located outside the entrance of the estate, consists of late 19th century homes that originally housed the artisans who built the estate. Today they are quaint shops selling everything from locally-sourced gifts at Provisions Mercantile to upscale women’s fashions at Lily Pulitzer and Chico, and restaurants, like the Corner Kitchen and Well-Bred Bakery.

Locals will tell you that nature is a huge part of the western North Carolina experience. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs along the perimeter of the city and draws nature lovers, bird watchers, and hikers.
