Step back into history and wander through this delightful shopping arcade. It was cool and light, so perfect on a hot afternoon. A nice selection of stores and places to stop for a cuppa! Definitely worth a visit.

Make it a point to stop at the Grove Arcade just to view the architecture -it's unique and beautiful. There are a variety shops on the first level. Also restrooms if you need them.

This is an absolutely gorgeous building! I loved the various shops especially Caravan, Razberry Threads and the Battery Park Bookstore. I just love independent bookstores and I really liked the concept this one offered with wine and very comfy, antiquity seating.

The Grove Arcade is a must-see place in Asheville, but once you've seen it, that might be enough. It is pretty cool that you have some really nice shops in a really nice old building. But once you've seen them, well, unless you really connect...More
