bookWhat makes Asheville so special? It's hard to believe a city with so much going on could be in such a beautiful location, but here in the French Broad River Valley, our skyline mixes in with the peaks of the tallest mountains east of the Mississippi River. 

If that isn't enough, there's plenty more for families to enjoy, including:

  • There are numerous pristine parks with breathtaking views of mountains and rivers.
  • There are several museums, one of which is dedicated to pinball.
  • For all ages, there are zipline canopy tours, high ropes courses, and climbing walls.
  • Trails for hiking and mountain biking cover thousands of miles.
  • Whether you prefer dense forests, mountain views, rivers, lakes, or waterfalls, there are excellent campgrounds suited to what you enjoy the most
  • Waterfalls and cold-water swimming holes with salamanders
  • Whitewater rapids or lazy rivers for tubing
  • Excellent educational opportunities

When the kids are off from school, there isn't much time to be bored in Asheville during the summer.
