Oh, Asheville! This quaint town is near and dear to my heart.

I’ll be perfectly honest, though. When our family initially started brainstorming places to spend Thanksgiving last year, this was not at the top of my list. Shame on me. The only reason it wasn’t is because I had never been, nor had I even heard of it. How could six people and two dogs possibly entertain themselves for a weekend that high up in the mountains, especially with no snow? Trust me. There’s plenty to eat, see, drink, and do!

They don’t call Asheville “The Ale Trail” for nothing. Lined all across the downtown area are breweries after breweries, taprooms after taprooms. By the end of our stay, we crossed a total of nine off our must-hit list. We also quickly discovered the booming foodie scene. When we weren’t stuffing our faces with turkey leftovers, the group dined out at Rhubarb and Nightbell. We also enjoyed a delicious, candlelit dinner at Biltmore Estate, followed by a tour around the entire property. Below are just some of the other great spots we scoped out, but I can’t wait to come back for round two!
