Blue Ridge Views and the Biltmore Concert Series: A Spectacular Summer Getaway in Asheville, NC


Imagine your day starts with a leisurely drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway, passing through tunnels on your way to Pisgah Mountain. You stop at an overlook and take in the scenery; the breeze has a chill to it and the air smells like honeysuckle. The valley below is a verdant wave of treetops and the view stretches across multiple ridge lines. You stop in at the Pisgah Inn Dining Hall, the "The Peak of the Parkway," and savor some delicious Southern cuisine. As you make your way back down to Asheville, your favorite vacation destination, you look forward to an evening concert at the Biltmore Estate. 

Past the Biltmore gate, as you wind around the 8,000-acre grounds towards the main attraction, you snap a few photos of a willow leaning over a pond covered in blooming waterlillies. The Butterfly Garden makes the perfect backdrop for a picnic dinner, followed by a relaxing stroll to explore the Walled Garden, which was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, famed for his landscaping at Central Park and Niagara Falls. 

Finally, it's time to find your seats for the show. As the music begins, the sun is turning the sky pink with streaks of purple over the mountains peaks that surround the South Terrace and, just as the band plays your favorite song, you wonder if this is paradise. A twinkle from the evening's first star confirms that it must be paradise indeed.
