Asheville North Carolina
Small City, Big Time Bites What made elBulli alumna Chef Katie Button choose Asheville as the home of her first restaurant? For years, traveling foodies have been surprised to uncover a food scene of metropolitan quality and farm-fresh authenticity tucked away in the mountains of North Carolina. The word is spreading. A recent TripAdvisor readers’ poll named Asheville alongside New York, Chicago and Charleston on a short-list of the nation’s top culinary destinations. More than 250 independent restaurants, a booming artisan food products industry, and a destination-wide movement to elevate gluten-free and sustainable dining all play a role in support of a fiercely local food community that is reinventing what it means to be farm-to-table.
Blue Ridge Parkway
The Blue Ridge Parkway is history waiting to be discovered! Although the road is often seen primarily as a scenic byway with plenty of natural attractions, it is also a cross-section of Appalachian mountain history. Stretching almost 500 miles along the crest of the Blue Ridge mountains through North Carolina and Virginia, it encompasses some of the oldest settlements of both pre-historic and early European settlement. Visitors can trace much of the history of Appalachian culture by observing overlook signs, visitor center exhibits, restored historic structures, and developed areas, all of which reveal points of particular interest. For a complete listing of the Parkway's historic attractions, contact the areas you will be visiting.

Grandfather Mountain and its rocks reveal a long history of rock formation and mountain-building that dates back to 1.1 billion years ago. Today the mountain you see is the end product of two things: the mountain-building that culminated 300 million years ago, and the erosion that has been ongoing for over 100 million years and continues today.
The original Cherokee name for the mountain was “Tanawha,” meaning “a fabulous hawk or eagle.” It was named “Grandfather” by pioneers who recognized the face of an old man in one of the cliffs. Many vantage points reveal different faces, so there is no one official profile of the mountain, but the most popular can be seen from the community of Foscoe, seven miles north of Linville and 10 miles south of Boone on N.C. 105.
