Recreation - Regional Tours and Attractions

Digg this!

When you choose charming Weaverville for your Blue Ridge Mountain vacation, you’ll find dozens of family-friendly attractions easily accessible in every direction.

History buffs can visit such sites as the Vance Birthplace, the Thomas Wolfe Memorial, and Asheville’s storied Riverside Cemetery and Smith-McDowell House. Watch – or even participate in – a Civil War battle reenactment, and take a bus ride along the Blue Ridge Parkway’s historic Cades Cove to watch elk and black bears in their natural habitat.

Craftspeople and artists will invite you into their studios to watch them blow glass, weave baskets, shape wrought iron, paint, and sculpt, or you might prefer to follow the Handmade in America guidebook leading you to private studios throughout the region. Ride the electric trolley to learn about Asheville’s architectural gems, including two of the most magnificent domed structures in the South, Rafael Gustavino’s Basilica of St. Lawrence (Catholic) and Douglas Ellington’s First Baptist Church.

The adventurous can choose walking tours, scenic bike tours, river rafting excursions and dozens of other activities for your family’s Weaverville playcation, and the culturally inclined will want to take in an evening of free Shakespeare in the Park with Montford Park Players or attend a mountain dance and music festival. Satisfy the naturalist in you with visits to the North Carolina Arboretum at Bent Creek and the Botanical Gardens at UNC-Asheville.
