stroll with me down the streets of Asheville, North Carolina, USA , and get a few small glimpses of what makes this town unique...
In July, my son and I visited my daughter who lives in Asheville.
The Corner Kitchen in the Biltmore Village
a garden shop in an alleyway
on Lexington Street
Early Girl Eatery (see first photo) (NOTE: interesting window display, but restaurant not recommended)
lovely blooming crepe myrtle trees line the streets
a secret respite
mime: There are always street performers displaying their talent
tile on a storefront
heavenly truffles from The Chocolate Lounge
few random suggestions from my daughter: RESTAURANTS: Rezaz-can reserve a spot at the chef's table in the kitchen while he cooks a special meal just for you; Enotecca-Italian wine bar & more, great desserts. GROVE PARK INN-has a world renowned spa, can get a day pass. GALLERIES: Blue Spiral, Front, Satellite (downtown), Flood (river arts district where there are many studios that artists will let you walk through if they are there). DRIVE on the Blue Ridge Parkway
PS I was planning on doing a post on Asheville at some point, but hearing that Athena Workman will be visiting for her wedding anniversary in October spurred me on to get it done. I will be doing another post of our hike in the mountains.
