Spending MLK in the Mountains


Spending MLK in the Mountains

 For those of you traveling to the mountains for the MLK Holiday, we've outlined a few of our favorite ways to spend the long weekend!

Pizza and Movie
There is something so delightful about eating fresh pizza slices while watching a fun flick. Asheville has you covered for this activity with Asheville Brewing Company! The Merrimon Ave location is our go-to movie-pizza-beer spot and honestly, it's always an exciting experience. Bring the kiddos or the sweetie for a classic night of fun!

Hike
We make a point of getting out of the house on holiday weekends to enjoy the breathtaking landscape that surrounds us here in Western North Carolina. January weather in WNC is unpredictable - it could be a sunny 60 degrees or a frigid 15 degrees, but that never takes away from the fun. We recommend heading up to Roan Mountain to take in the expansive views of the mountains and valleys in the distance!
 
Shop
Who doesn't love a good shopping spree? The Asheville Outlet Mall is a supremely popular destination on holiday weekends (for good reason - it's eclectic and expansive!). We also recommend heading into Downtown Asheville to check out our independently owned shops and pop up booths. 
 
Stay Local
Staying local will transform your stay in the mountains into a full blown, memorable vacation. Carolina Mornings has dozens of amazing vacation rentals in and around the Asheville area - each one unique! For a 4 bedroom stunner located in Black Mountain, NC, check out Black Bear Cabin! This gorgeous pet friendly home is conveniently situated to many of our area's most popular attractions, including The Biltmore Estate, the River Arts District, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. You'll love the private 2-person hot tub, the cozy fireplaces, and the tasteful decor. Best of all, this home is a Certified Eco-Friendly property, so you can rest easy knowing that your vacation is environmentally responsible!
