Enjoying Christmastime in Asheville

Nothing beats Christmas in Asheville. This year, as every year, we have a few fun activities planned for the week of Christmas. We are going to start, as we always do, at the Antique Tobacco Barn in town. It is actually nationally recognized as one of the best antique malls in the Southeast and it has received recognition in Southern Living magazine, through the Discovery Channel and with Budget Travel.

This mall is truly an antique lover’s haven. It has 75 independent antique dealers housed in one massive warehouse. Should you not find what you’re looking for there (how could you not!), you can always try the other 13 antique stores that are within a mile or two from the grounds.

Now, in addition to happy antique hopping, we are also going to shop in the Biltmore Village. This quaint area is right across from the entrance to the Biltmore Estate and has more than 40 shops and cafes. It includes picturesque tree-lined streets, brick sidewalks, period architecture and many other gems.

And, of course, we will drive around and admire the sparkling lights at the Biltmore Estate and see if we can’t get ourselves a tour of that charming and gorgeous residence! I’m looking forward to seeing the 68 trees that they’ve decorated inside the house and to admiring the gorgeous lights throughout.
Merry Christmas everyone!
