Discover Asheville

Often overlooked in favor of North Carolina’s bigger cities, Asheville is one of the state’s best-kept secrets. The Land of the Sky is the ideal base for adventure seekers, with the Blue Ridge Mountains and Pisgah National Forest within touching distance of downtown. Asheville has plenty of history and culture too. It’s the birthplace of North Carolina's most famous writer, Thomas Wolfe, and is home to fascinating attractions like the lavish Biltmore Estate.

Book your Asheville RV rental in spring and enjoy mild temperatures in the 60s and 70s, perfect for hiking up the highest mountain east of the Mississippi River, Mount Mitchell. Springtime also brings some of Asheville's top events, including the Montford Music and Arts Festival and Biltmore Blooms.

Things to do in Asheville

Things to do in Asheville

Before taking your Asheville motorhome rental to the Biltmore Estate or the Asheville Art Museum, it's worth checking if downtown is RV friendly. Traffic in Asheville is infamous, with several bottlenecks around the city causing jams regardless of the time of day. While there aren't many parking lots that allow RVs, you may find oversized parking at Walmart or Lowe's. If you don't feel like taking your RV downtown, use Asheville's historic trolley service or rent a bicycle.

Tourists travel from across the U.S. to visit the stunning Biltmore Estate. This 250-room house was built in the late 19th century by George Washington Vanderbilt II, and at the time, was the largest private home in the country. Today the estate is a history museum showcasing what life was like for the wealthy during the Gilded Age. After taking a tour, pay a visit to the winery, or unwind at the spa.

A fun day out for families in Asheville is the Western North Carolina Nature Center. This relatively small zoo is home to around 100 species, mainly native to the Appalachian Mountains, as well as a few exotic residents. While touring the zoo, you'll encounter some fascinating critters, including American black bears, great horned owls, and red pandas.

If you and your crew prefer to spend your days scaling the mountains surrounding Asheville, then pay a visit to Mount Mitchell State Park. Situated at the end of the Blue Ridge Parkway, this park boasts several Appalachian Mountain ranges, including Mount Mitchell, the tallest mountain east of the Mississippi at 6,684 feet above sea level. Hike through spruce-fir forests to reach the summit and enjoy breathtaking panoramas of cloud-covered mountaintops.
