Gotta Garden, Asheville was fun, great food and the eminently livable downtown great for people watching. But it was hot, 90+ degrees with high humidity for the time we were there. We thought the mountains would be cooler but all the natives were saying this was an unusually hot year. The Biltmore house and gardens were an interesting all day visit. Walking through the 4 acre house took at least a couple of hours. Photos were prohibited indoors so unfortunately no pictures. I hope you get to visit it one day. It's almost in your neck of the woods.
