This is the back of the Biltmore, I thought this was a nice pic :) We stayed at the Inn on the Biltmore and the Sunrises are just amazing. This is a phone pic but I just love it.. Fabulous way to spend the day :) The Biltmore House was the family home to George and Edith Vanderbilt and opened on Christmas Eve, 1895. The Cecil family opened its’ doors to the public in 1930 in an attempt to increase tourism during the Great Depression and to generate income to preserve the estate. It houses magnificent 16th century tapestries, a library with 10,000 books, 65 fireplaces, an indoor pool, and a bowling alley. This is the main Banquet Hall that has a seven story, 70 foot ceiling and tapestries from the 1500’s. It was the place for elegant dinner parties and celebrations. Built between 1889 and 1895 by George Vanderbilt II the house has 250 rooms totaling 179,926 square feet. The slate roof tiles were individually attached by wire to the attic's steel frame. The Inn on Biltmore Estate is the coolest place I have ever stayed. There are majestic views of the mountains and the Inn is all decked out for Christmas. If you're visiting Asheville, this is THE place to stay. Here's the entrance of the Biltmore Estate. There really isn't anywhere more beautiful than the Biltmore property. Morning walk in the Beaver Lake park.. Do you spot me?
I so wanna get lost here! #Green

In 2007, it was ranked eighth in America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects. Cutting corners in town The most amazing place ever, the sheer oppulance of Biltmore is just incredible, but more than that, is that one man had the foresight to lay out this incredible place for us to all enjoy. this is a must vist, and one that I would call the 8th wonder of the world. Fall season flower arrangement Massive tulip planting outside the conservatory. Back home in Asheville. First time at the sky bar. #localgem More art in the woods of unca.

This building is the epitome of #Asheville. What a stunning view you get with your meal Wandering around and found the Thomas wolf house. Lived here all my life and had never seen it.

Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar. What's not to like? There are 80 wines for sale by the glass, a barista working an amazing coffee bar with any concoction you desire and 30,000 books for sale. This shop is crammed with nooks to sit in while sipping and reading. It's a good thing I don't live here as I would spend a lot of time (and money) here. They have first editions, too. #foodanddrinks A nice terrace at Grove Park Inn. Great thing is that it is open to the outdoors but because of the heaters on the edge one barely feels any of the cold of winter other than the occasional breeze that blows inside but that breeze just makes it feel nicer. Great views of Asheville especially in evening. As well as the surrounding mountains and the sunsets. Dream meals! The Biltmore House. The mist. The breeze. This is a summer dream.#aquatrove #roadtrip #asheville #northcarolina Upon reaching the city of Asheville, my initial thoughts of the city as a whole were loosely generated from the biased opinion of my Boone peers.

I'm super new to photography, but I discovered this amazing parking lot that perfectly faces the setting sun and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Enjoy! #BVStrove Asheville is such a cool city. I was walking down the street and I came upon this really cool wall. Asheville fits into the stereotype of Appalachia in a unique way. Appalachia doesn't exactly fit into the modern, mainstream culture. Asheville fits into that non-conforming mold.
Asheville is also home to some pretty unique music. A lot of this music has roots in traditional This picture doesn't do this street justice. I love Wall Street, because it's quiet and peaceful on in the middle of a busy city. It is home to some amazing restaurants, many that have vegetarian options. Those are pretty hard to find. When I think of the Appalachian mountains, I think about being able to eat really good food. This picture also features the back of my sister because we always go to the mountains together. I know that when we go to the mountains, we will be able to spend a lot of time together. That might be shopping, exploring used bookstores, or driving all over the place to take I mean, who wouldn't stop here?
This is how one repurposes an old gas station. There's another gas station/cool eatery in Louisville,KY. PJ made up a selection of his favorite smoked and pampered meats for me and remembered my name for later pickup. He was in the back practicing smokology when I came back, but made a point of stepping out to say hi.
I also met the pig boss of Warren Wilson College working at Chop Shop as her summer job. Loved this place. Tell them I sent you. River District wall. Nothing like walking into a shop and asking for a sampler of their favorite smokey delights, then walking out later with a selection of 4 , including tasso, several sausages and some rib bones and a pig knuckle for the dogs. PJ has an amazing business that I would definitely put on my 100 mile gottagoto radar. #gottagoto. Taco Temple- right in the middle of two blocks of deliciousness. River District wall. Go to street art in the River Arts District.
