- Good Food and Great Outdoors in Western Carolina
I still haven’t boarded a plane since February 2019. However since then we have taken three long (15+ hours) roadtrips with the most recent being an excursion into North Carolina where we stayed in the Asheville area for a week before heading over to Charlotte for a couple of nights. This was our second roadtrip to Asheville and my first time visiting Charlotte. We wanted to go somewhere with a rich outdoor setting and ended up choosing Asheville over Colorado bc it’s a little closer but really bc it’s got a much better food scene than any of the other mountain towns. I can’t think of an American city with under 100,000 people that has a harder hitting chef driven food scene than Asheville. There’s lots of good spots in this Western Carolina mountain town that has access to great local ingredients and a ton of amazing locally brewed beers to feature on tap. It’s got a food and drink scene like you might expect to find in other more well known destinations. Plus amazing scenery outside of the city.
