Asheville, NC Top 10 Most Beautiful Places


There are a lot of reasons to visit Asheville, NC, voted one of the top 10 most beautiful places in America, as determined by Good Morning America.  Enjoy this video for a wonderful overview.  Fun & funky downtown with an amazing art scene - be sure and visit the River Arts District (RAD) and walk right into the many artist studios - dining scene, with independently owned restaurants, many taking advantage of fresh and healthy local foods - the Biltmore Estate - hiking along the Blue Ridge Parkway - and so much more.

Because of the beauty and accessibility of the area, many movies have been made in the Asheville area, several noted in the youtube video clip here.  The Hunger Games is coming out in March of 2012 and was filmed in the area in 2011.

Asheville is also known for its abundance of Bed and Breakfast options.  Stay with us at Oakland Cottage B&B right in town and just a mile from the entrance to the Biltmore Estate, The Orange Peel Music Hall, and Historic Downtown Asheville and about 4 miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Or for more independent, longer stays and often spectacular views and scenery from a private deck, enjoy renting a Vacation Rental in the area.  Whatever your lodging needs when you visit one of the most Beautiful Cities in America, give us a call at 828 994-2627.
