I have been to Asheville, and I loved it, but I couldn't really tell you anything about it except that I had fun. It was the only time I have ever been there, and only stayed for a night. But, there's always fun stuff to do it seems. We walked through town, and there were a number of great craft stores. I am a weaver and seamstress and so it was pure heaven in that respect. Anyway, I wish I could help more but rest assured that if you go in with a plan or no plan, you'll have fun either way. Have a great time!
