Asheville (North Carolina)

Being a native North Carolinian, I have always loved the mountain town of Asheville.  It is quirky, hip, and funky while also being home to great restaurants, tons of outdoor activities, and the biggest private home in America!  There is a lot to do in Asheville almost any time of the year, from summer rafting to fall hiking to winter holiday displays.  

Asheville makes a great home base for any family vacation.  Being close to other mountain destinations, such as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway, you can easily fill a week of fun things to do with kids.
