Asheville Off The Beaten Path: 35 reviews and 66 photos
Take a ride on the parkway and you'll see so many impressive views of the surrounding landscape. This photo was taken from a lookout point on the southern end of the parkway. I spent a few minutes talking to a cyclist who was stretching his legs before heading up the mountain for a ride. He was telling me that he had moved from the northeast and despite the fact that most of his family had moved down to Florida, he just couldn't pull himself away from the mountains. He said, "the beaches are for vacations, the mountains are to live." I tend to agree.
The views were nice, but they're even better if you come in the fall.

Blowing Rock is a really beautiful place. You'll see the exit off I-40 or just ask a local (it's very close). I love it in winter best.
Linville. Head northeast on the Blue Ridge Parkway and in about an hour or so you'll be in Linville. There are some great hiking paths that lead up to great views of the Linville Gorge. There are numerous waterfalls in the area and even caves to tour.
