To learn more about Asheville while exploring the city on foot, take a self-guided walking tour on the Urban Trail. The 1.7-mile loop starts downtown at Pack Square and features 30 stations in total with sculptural markers detailing historic moments from the city’s past.

Asheville embraced the salt cave trend, offering a variety of options in and around the city. Asheville Salt Cave & Spa, Shoji Spa & Lodge and The Salt Spa of Asheville offer salt therapies as well as massage and other spa treatments.

Archetype Brewing, located in West Asheville, hosts a weekly yoga class. Hi-Wire Brewing and One World Brewing West both offer hour-long weekly runs. All fitness levels are welcome. Highland Brewing Co. offers two weekly fitness options: hip-hop classes and a running club.

Asheville delights diners with its many award-winning restaurants specializing in farm-to-table, seasonal fare. Check out Rhubarb or The Market Place for seasonally driven, regional dishes. Vegan and vegetarian restaurants like Laughing Seed Café and Rosetta’s Kitchen prove popular among both locals and tourists.

Don’t leave Asheville without visiting the Biltmore Estate. The historic house museum opens daily for tours.
