Asheville Weekend Getaway

Happy Thanksgiving! Today, I'm sharing a recap of our weekend getaway to Asheville, North Carolina because one of the things I am most thankful for this year is all of the amazing experiences. Our family finds so much value in traveling, new adventures, and exciting experiences that we can enjoy together! We do very few gifts for Christmas and focus more on experiences throughout the year instead. My children may never remember the toys that were under the tree but they always remember the moments that we get to spend together!

Our Asheville getaway, however, was just for Josh and I. We don't get enough time, just the two of us, so we used my birthday as the perfect reason to get away and celebrate! We had the best weekend reconnecting, laughing, and just having fun together. We chose to spend our weekend in Asheville because it's one of my favorite cities in North Carolina!

Omni Grove Park Inn | This was the first time we have ever stayed here and I was super excited because it's been on my list of places to stay at for quite some time. We visited and just walked around a couple of years ago so staying here was even better! We always book work and personal travel through Expedia so we cashed in some points to get book this weekend there. I highly recommend using Expedia to book your trip to the Omni Grove Park Inn because we were given a free upgrade when we checked in! We had a beautiful mountain view from our cozy, comfortable room! Everything about this place is absolutely charming and I loved that it was decorated for Christmas while we were there. My absolute favorite thing is to enjoy a drink in a rocking chair in front of the giant fireplace. It's such a fun, relaxing experience! Overall, we really loved staying here and I can't wait to go back again!

Nine Mile | We had been to this Caribbean inspired restaurant before and had to go back on this tip. The food is delicious and they have such unique items!

Biscuit Head | This place had a giant line! It was a little chilly outside so the outdoor tables were open so we opted to skip the line and sit outside. Otherwise it would have been an hour wait! The food is worth it, though. Everything we had was so good! They also had a fun jam bar to try out new flavors for your biscuits. You won't be disappointed at Biscuit Head!

White Duck Taco Shop | We are always on the hunt for good tacos and we found some amazing ones at White Duck Taco Shop. So many unique flavor combinations that they are regularly changing out. I highly recommend this place! Such great prices, too.

Early Girl Eatery | On our last morning, we stopped at Early Girl Eatery for breakfast. We shared the Porky Breakfast Bowl and house granola with yogurt. It was delicious and so filling!

River Arts District | We spent some time exploring the River Arts District to take in all of the incredible art in the area. Art is everywhere in this section of Asheville! We also got to see glass being blown, which was really cool. This area is a must see!

Downtown Asheville | On Saturday, we spent most of the day exploring downtown Asheville. There are so many breweries, restaurants, and shops downtown. One of our favorite stop was to Double D's Coffee and Desserts for a mid-afternoon latte. This shop is located inside of an old double decker bus! It's such a fun little top. Note: they only accept cash for payment.

Craggy Gardens | This is a beautiful trail and a really easy walk that's just right outside of Asheville. There was even snow on the ground and the weather was just perfect! We need to come back during the springtime, when the flowers are in bloom. There is another hike right off of this one but it's much longer and we didn't come prepared for a long hike. But if you love hiking, definitely check out the other trails that are in this area.

Mount Mitchell | Our last stop in the area was to visit Mount Mitchell, which is highest peak of the Appalachian Mountains and the highest peak in mainland eastern North America. You can drive most of the way up to the top and then it's a short hike to the peak. Such a beautiful view!
