Asheville Offers So Much
Asheville is a great place to live and visit. Over the years, Asheville has been ranked in numerous polls including Good Morning America, Frommers, and Forbes as one of the best places to be in the country in terms of places to live, work, enjoy the arts, and “be happy”. Here are some places that enhance the quality of life in Asheville:
Asheville is synonymous with the Biltmore Estate. The Biltmore attracts visitors from near and far. It is the largest private home in the United States. The Biltmore Estate was built by George Vanderbilt II in the Châteauesque style of architecture from 1889 to 1895. Biltmore Village, which includes the Estate, is known for some of the finest architecture in the nation and has shops, restaurants, and historic buildings to explore.
The downtown area of Asheville features buildings, including the city hall, constructed in the Art Deco style. Downtown Asheville has shopping, restaurants, museums, art galleries, music, and plenty of selections for wine and chocolate enthusiasts. The Montford Area Historic District showcases examples of Victorian architecture.
Asheville is the number one small city for art in the United States. There is art from nearly every genre possible in downtown, Biltmore Village, and the other historic communities. Throughout the year, art exhibits, festivals, and shows draw residents and visitors to Asheville. In February, there is the annual Arts & Crafts Antique Show and Conference; the Downtown Asheville Art Walk is in April; Mother’s Day weekend is enhanced by Fiber Weekend, which features quilt and doll making, clothing designs, tapestry and fiber arts. The Montford Arts and Music Festival is also in May. Groverwood Gallery hosts the annual outdoor sculpture exhibit from June through December. July 4th weekend means even more art exhibits and festivals throughout Asheville. Autumn is ushered in with studio tours and street festivals, paving the way for Christmas in Asheville…a community spectacular that can’t be beat.
Asheville is also becoming known for its award-winning craft breweries. Tours and tastings are favorites for locals and visitors alike.
Those who have a penchant for adventure will enjoy rock climbing at Chimney (aptly named we think!) Rock Park, located just outside of Asheville, or white water rafting along the French Broad River. Golfers can play at private and public award-winning courses designed to challenge every handicap while providing spectacular views.
Asheville offers so much to see and do. Environmental Chimney Service wants to help you enjoy life in Asheville by keeping you safe from chimney-related health and fire hazards. Contact us today to schedule your annual inspection and maintenance!
