Asheville is one of the TOP Art Destinations in the Country so in between enjoying your own Creative time you can time to ExPLORE all this super Fun, city has to offer! There is always so much going on. Perhaps you'll take in the Chihuly Glass exhibit at the Biltmore house, or enjoy a cocktail at sunset at the Historic Grove Park INN. Downtown Asheville with it's hip and artsy vibe is filled with boutiques and yummy restaurants to explore. And taking a hike on the Blue Ridge Parkway is just a skip away. Oh, and one of my favorite art shows in the area ever is on Saturday, September 15th in Weaverville just an easy 15 min. drive away! What a perfect finale to a week filled with Color and Creativity!
