My husband, daughter, and I meandered along Rt. 81 from Dc suburbs to look at various colleges. We stopped in Asheville and fell in love with the area. Our stay was made enjoyable by the wonderful staff at the Renaissance hotel. They were able to give us suggestions for shopping & dining within walking distance of the hotel. Asheville is a charming town with artsy little shops and a wide variety of different cuisines offered in their many restaurants. For a small city, Asheville has a lot to offer. It is beautifully set at the base of the Great Smoky Mountains so outdoorsy types will find a lot of activities. It hss been gaining popularity recently as a retirement spot. Also, it is home to UNC Asheville which has a student population of around 7000. Many other colleges are within a 1-2 hour drive. It has a thriving arts community and home to yhe Biltmore Estate. Well worth the trip.
