I recently traveled to Asheville with one of my dearest friends that’s more like a sister for a girls’ getaway over the long Memorial Day weekend. Even though the trip was relatively quick, we packed a lot of fun in, thanks to some amazing recommendations from friends. We stayed in the sweetest Bed & Breakfast and the highlight of the trip for us (history nerds, unite!) was the day spent at The Biltmore. Whether you’re planning your next girls’ trip or romantic getaway, here are a few must-do’s you might want to add to your list:
The Applewood Manor – One of the oldest B&B’s in Asheville, this place offered Southern charm with plenty of modern elegance. The innkeepers were so welcoming and the three-course culinary delight of a breakfast each morning was worth the stay.
SEE & DO
The Biltmore – If you love history and impeccable beauty, this is a must-see. We took our time with a guided tour around the house & grounds, a carriage ride, and of course plenty of shopping.
The Grove Arcade – Rich with history and full of unique shopping spots.
Wake Foot Sanctuary – This was the perfect way to relax before we headed home and the lavender soak was oh so good. The massage took it over the top! I cannot recommend this enough.
Tupelo Honey Cafe – The original, this place was perfect for a late night dinner and made all the more fun by sitting at the chef’s bar.
Village Social – Located in the Biltmore’s Antler Hill Village, this farm-to-table eatery had great ambience at sunset and an even better burger.
