Why Visit Asheville

Western North Carolina boasts more waterfalls, swimming holes, lakes and streams than you can shake a stick at, and Asheville is a perfect home base to start your exploration of these natural wonders. Whether you're looking for cold, clear mountain streams, challenging rapids or just a serene swimming hole to wade into, the Blue Ridge Mountains offer a plethora of options.

Some of the best swimming holes are in Asheville's backyard, barely hidden from view. If you're lucky, you might stumble onto one after a long hike—feeling like you've walked into a dream—but for everyone else there's this concise guide to the best swimming holes in the area. We like juicy secrets like everyone else, but some things are too good to keep to yourself.

A Conversation with Edith Head

A Conversation with Edith Head runs through Sunday, June 8, at N.C. Stage Co. Wednesdays-Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. $14-$30. Student tickets $10.

The Golden Age of Hollywood is alive and well at North Carolina Stage Company. All the glamor and some bits of the juicy gossip come to life in an intimate and fun evening, all wrapped in the special event: A Conversation with Edith Head starring Susan Claassen, artistic director of Tuscon, Arizona’s Invisible Theatre. The show comes with world-wide acclaim, and its star, who is also the co-author (with Paddy Calistro, Edith Head authority and author of the posthumous autobiography Edith Head’s Hollywood.)

The show has traveled the country and the world, having played coast to coast in more than 250 performances, and selling out its run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2007. The show was first staged in 2002. It runs in Asheville through Sunday, June 8.

For the uninitiated, Edith Head was an eight-time Oscar winner for costume design (she worked on over 1,100 films over her long career), self-styled fashion maven of the 20th century, and one of the most striking Hollywood icons of all time (a clever homage to her appears in the Pixar film, The Incredibles).Conversation is set in 1981, just prior to Head’s death. She had recently completed of work on her final film, the Steve Martin comedy, Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid.  read more

People Watching

Downtown Asheville is a rare place. Artists and street musicians converge with tourists and locals for a vibrancy rarely found in a city of this size. People sip cups of Joe at one of several locally-owned coffee shops, listen to live music at a local club. They go on art walks, winding their way through downtown's 30-plus galleries. Shoppers inspect unique boutique finds, or people simply enjoy fine cuisineand people-watching.

People watching involves observing people to get a feel for the beauty and rhythm of the community around us. People watching is amazing, you will have some great laughs and possibly be inspired in some way. For some people watchers, it's about creativity, using the moments of watching to try and guess at another person's story just from mere observation, and embracing the fun of what is, in effect, an amateur social science.

Asheville is a beautiful mix of "society", celebrities, hippies, musicians, artists, movie stars,locals, mountain folk, tourists, & dogs & their owners. That's not all, but it's a great start.  Enjoy the great attitude.  Everyone wants to be in Asheville.  It is a happy place.

Linville Cavens

Located in WNC near Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns are worth the visit. Deep beneath Humpback Mountain, nature has sculpted a veritable masterpiece in stone. Toiling many centuries, slowly moving ground water has been the primary artist for this creation of underground labyrinths. The water dissolved out an incredible series of rooms and passages. The cavern was discovered in the 1800′s by men intrigued by the mystery of fish swimming out of the mountain. Since then, extensive research has been done to acknowledge the history, folklore, geology and biology of Linville Caverns. The mystery is still alive.

Linville Caverns are privately owned active limestone caverns located in northern McDowell County, North Carolina, just south of the village of Linville Falls, on U.S. Highway 221. The caverns are open to the public year round for guided tours. About 1 Hour to drive to 19929 U.S. 221, Marion, NC 28752 Open 9:00 am to 6:00 pm

Guest Letter:  Dear Brea,...I also wanted to let you know your name came up repeatedly when my friends and I stayed in Asheville in May at a different cabin.  I knew it wouldn’t be as good as your cabins but I was still surprised at how much we missed all your comforts.  The cabin and view were nice but the kitchen (which is my domain on vacation) was woefully under stocked with cheap pans, dull knives and garage sale dishes.  They didn’t even have salt and pepper in the cabinet!  The doorknob fell off the second day and we had to buy a screwdriver to put it back together since there were no basic tools in the house.  We also missed your fluffy robes and silky sheets.  You have ruined us for other rentals!!!    I hope we can visit one of your cabins again soon.  Cheryl
