We are planning a week long trip to Asheville end of June. We have taken quick weekends and gone to Biltmore but this time we are wanting to take our time and do a lot of hiking, sightseeing, and eating!
We have done week long trips in Gatlinburg area and spent our days filled with hiking and then going out to eat at night at local establishments.
We have generally rented cabins. I am debating or figuring out what area to stay in to get in some major hiking followed by nighttime good eats. We have a 15 yr old and a 10 yr old that have been on long hikes and short hikes with us so they are acclimated to daily hiking on easy to streneous hikes.
We like to follow up these long days of hikings with enjoying good food and drink at night.
So, the big questions...where to stay? Asheville hiking is definitely more spread out then Gatlinburg area hiking where we just drive into the National Park and pick a hike.
Cabin? What area? (love cabins, love the hot tubs)
Home in downtown Asheville? (seems central and walking distance to all the dining)
