MLK weekend in Asheville

Snow is surely melting, the sun is shining and the roads are quite clear and passable for this MLK weekend in Asheville.  You might just see a few snowmen (snowwomen, snowpeople, snowfamilies, snowpets!) as you drive or walk around town.  Along with sledding and building snowmen, there's lots to do in Asheville this January.

The Biltmore Estate looks spectacular in the snow and it isn't crowded at all, so a wonderful time to visit the Estate.  Many lodging venues offer discounted Biltmore Tickets January through March.

The Civic Center's Thomas Wolf Auditorium has lots of fun going on this month.  Robert Plant will be playing at the Civic Center on Monday night, January 18th.  Warm up with beer at the Warmer Winter Beer Festival on January 22nd and laughter on the 23rd with a Bill Cosby Concert.  Find a cozy place to stay nearby, many delightful options are within minutes of the Civic Center and beyond.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."  MLK  We will honor his memory in particular this weekend.
