First time to Asheville and decided on this versus a scavenger hunt to keep it self paced and low key. Visitor's center was busy but found the map and went on our way since I didn't print it at home...which is an option. As long...More

Got the newest paper map at the Visitor Center but found it so impossible to use, we just finally gave up. We didn't even make it half way through. This is a great concept and a lot of money has been invested in the corresponding...More

We forgot our map and downloaded the on line version. We walked around a bit but had a hard time finding the art and gave up after awhile. Oh well. We enjoyed our stroll through the relatively small downtown anyway.

Not as good as we were hoping. We tried to find all 30 stops but the map was pretty bad given the lack of street signs. One or two stops weren't bad.

We walked around the area and found it interesting. Unfortunately my wife and daughter were tired and many of the stores were closed. Asheville rolls up the sidewalks at 6 if you want to stroll in and out of shops. If you want to eat...More
