Carolina Mornings Spotlight: Valentine's Day Weekend Chocolate Tour


Valentine's Day Weekend Chocolate Tour
 There's not much that Asheville doesn't do amazingly well - we've got our beer game locked tight, our cocktails are out of this world, we do eclectic food perfectly, and we sure do know how to make art... one niche market that Asheville is quietly humble about is the fantastic world of artisan chocolate. It might not get a lot of press time, but Asheville is home to several mouth watering chocolate shops.
Read on to learn more about our suggestion for a Downtown Chocolate Tour!
 
Chocolate Gems
Chocolate Gems is a delightful little chocolate shop located on Broadway, one of the main streets of Downtown Asheville. Stop in for some of the very best chocolates and gelato in the Asheville area!
 
French Broad Chocolate Lounge
French Broad Chocolate Lounge has become quite famous in its own right - and most assuredly an Asheville staple. This amazing chocolate shop has cakes, pies, gelato, sipping chocolate, truffles, candies, and so much more.  A visit to the FBCL is a must do!
 
Kilwin's 
Kilwin's is a trusted favorite in these parts. Since 1947, this area staple has been concocting quality products and reliable sweets and treats for community members. Located on Battery Park Ave, just a skip away from the Grove Arcade, Kilwin's is a great place to stop for a sweets fix!
 
Chocolate Fetish 
Located just around the corner from Kilwins, Chocolate Fetish on Haywood St is a truly fantastic chocolate shop. All at once adventurous, reliable, comforting, and interesting, Chocolate Fetish has everything you need to spoil your sweety. 
 
Stay Local
Staying in a cozy, well appointed home over your romantic Valentine's Day weekend will be key to creating a perfect mountain getaway. Biltmore Villa Hideaway, a 2 bedroom condo located in Asheville, boasts a fully equipped kitchen, a gas fireplace, and convenient access to Biltmore Village Shops and Restaurants - everything you need to create the perfect weekend with the perfect ambiance. With Biltmore Villa Hideaway as your romantic home away from home, all of Asheville and the surrounding mountains will be at your fingertips.
