Top Five Things to Do in Asheville During the Holiday Season


Discover the best of Asheville, North Carolina, this holiday season with a little help from your friends at Carolina Mornings. Here's a few fun activities that will help you and yours make the most of time spent in the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains.

1. Get in the Holiday Spirit at the Biltmore Estate
From November 9th through the end of the year, witness the splendor of a Victorian holiday at the Biltmore Estate. Enjoy a Candlelight Evening Tour, when they light up the fireplaces after dark to reveal the intimate coziness of grandiose rooms. Biltmore tickets are included when you rent a cabin from Carolina Mornings - our exclusive Mountain Discovery Pass includes one ticket per day of your stay! This is a family-friendly treat not to be missed!

2. Splendid Town and Mountain Sightseeing
This holiday season, millions of tiny lights will be twinkling all around Asheville! To delight your eyes with visions of Christmas, take a drive through Montford, a walk around Biltmore Village, or a visit to Lake Julian Park's Festival of Lights. Then cruise up the Blue Ridge Parkway for breathtaking views - when the tree leaves fall, the views are wide open!

3. Shop Local for the Most Unique Gifts
Whether it's antiques, art, jewelry, or fashion that will make your loved ones squeal with delight, Asheville, North Carolina, is home to hundreds of independent stores eager to help you find the perfect gifts. "Buy Local" isn't just a catch phrase around here, it's something Asheville takes great pride in. Take a stroll through downtown, inside the Grove Arcade (which is beautifully decorated for the holidays!), or through the River Arts District to get your dose of the warm community spirit.

4. Get on the Bus (the LaZoom Bus, that Is)
The big purple LaZoom bus is a moving Asheville landmark, driving through downtown with full loads of laughing participants. The LaZoom crew will certainly help you get your holiday jollies on! Carolina Mornings wants to give you a hand in getting on the bus: the Mountain Discovery Pass, which is included with all vacation rentals, gives you one LaZoom ticket per day of your stay.

5. Discover Your Happy Place
During the hectic hustle and bustle, we sometimes overlook the most important part of holiday time: making memories with the ones you love. A Carolina Mornings mountain cabin provides you with many conveniences that will make your vacation a breeze. Claim a rocking chair on the deck of one of the cabins at Scenic Wolf Resort. The view from 4,300 feet is truly tremendous! Carolina Mornings also offers dozens of mountain vacation rentals all around the Asheville area, as well as numerous convenient, in-town locations.
