Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains at the confluence of the Swannanoa River and the French Broad River, Asheville is described as ‘edgy, artsy, and inviting’. The highest peaks in the Eastern US make it a wonderful destination for hiking, rafting, and exploring nature. The city has also been known to brew a good beer.
We’re excited to spend a weekend with you in a place that is so special to us.
Asheville’s (AVL) own airport is charming, but if you’re looking for more budget-friendly fares, try Charlotte (CLT) or Greenville (GSP). We suggest renting a car once you arrive so you have the chance to explore.Find Flights
If you have time for a drive, there’s really nothing better than ending a road trip in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Asheville is conveniently located at the intersection of I-40 (East to West) and I-26 (North to South).Driving Directions
Here are a few of our favorite local spots that we’d be excited for you to check out. You can also follow our Foursquare List for a more complete list of our recommendations.
We’ve reserved rooms at a Holiday Inn close to downtown Asheville. Complimentary shuttle service to the downtown area and transportation to and from the wedding ceremony/reception included. Also walking-distance from a Cracker Barrel.
Amelia and Steve love airbnb for a more authentic introduction to a city. Explore the Asheville area from a local's perspective by renting a cozy cabin, house, or apartment. This is a particularly fun option for groups travelling together.Search
Amelia and Steve moved to Chicago after college and inhabited the same city for over two years without ever meeting. They became aware of their crossing paths a few years later, while learning about computers/people/art at NYU. Their home in Brooklyn is filled with plants, books, and board games. They are so pleased that you not only came to this site, but also made it through this paragraph. This all means you’re coming to the wedding, right?!
The best present you could possibly give us is the celebration of our marriage. However, if you’d like to spoil us, we’ve picked out a few items, activities, and charities that pique our interests.Registry on Thankful
