Asheville Zen: Eat, Pray, Hike
Travelers are leaving the margaritas in Margaritaville and turning vacations into wellness adventures.
Nothing beats the white noise of a waterfall for a quiet moment to reconnect and rejuvenate. Surrounded by more than 800,000 acres of pristine wilderness, 2,000 miles of hiking/biking trails and world-class whitewater, Asheville is an oasis for health-conscious, active vacationers who want to come home more fit, relaxed and healthy than when they left.
A destination for rejuvenation since the 1800s, Asheville has drawn the likes of George W. Vanderbilt and F. Scott Fitzgerald for the healing properties of the mountain air and nearby natural hot springs.
