DAZZLING ARRAY OF DESTINATIONS AND

ACTIVITIES WILL TAKE YOUR EVENT TO

NEW HEIGHTS.

THE MOUNTAIN SCENERY AND URBAN CULTURE PROVIDES MANY UNIQUE OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUR CONVENTION ATTENDEES.

RESTAURANTS Whether fine dining or food truck falafel or fresh local rainbow trout, Asheville’s bountiful culinary scene is as diverse as it is delicious. With more than 250 independent restaurants and more than a dozen craft breweries, it’s not hard to understand how Asheville has been named one of the “Tastiest Towns of The South” by Southern Living Magazine, as well as Beer City USA for four years running.

ATTRACTIONS From the home, gardens and winery at George Vanderbilt’s magnificent Biltmore to Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park. These attractions and many others ensure that your meeting attendees will be talking about Asheville long after the conference is complete.

UNIQUE VENUES Going offsite with your conference may just mean going somewhere incredible. Asheville offers options ranging from bluegrass and BBQ under the stars at a mountain ranch to cool jazz at a chic gallery.

OUTDOORS With more than a million acres of surrounding national forest, Asheville is the perfect place to do a memorable group activity. Your group can experience the outdoors whether they schedule a whitewater rafting trip, a group hike or take a group bike ride.

NIGHTLIFE Asheville's arts scene comes alive at night. With a combination of intimate and large venues, there is plenty of live music, dance and theater to choose from.

CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY Want a team-building exercise with real long-term benefits? Let us help you put together an offsite activity that both brings you together and benefits the community. Group volunteer opportunities abound, from building homes to feeding the hungry to cleaning up local waterways. If your group’s schedule doesn’t provide enough extra time for volunteering, the CVB can connect you with local charities so your attendees can donate a little something extra at registration.

CLIMATE

ASHEVILLE

IS A FOUR-SEASON

DESTINATION,

WITH WARM SUMMERS, COOL AUTUMNS, MILD WINTERS

AND COLORFUL SPRINGS. YOUR GROUP WILL APPRECIATE

OUR PLEASANT CLIMATE.

ASHEVILLE SITS AT AN ALTITUDE OF 2200 FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL. THIS ELEVATION GIVES ASHEVILLE ITS DISTINCT CLIMATE ADVANTAGE.

10


SUMMER Asheville thermometers rarely top 85 in even the hottest part of the day and give way to cool, refreshing evenings.

AUTUMN High altitude, unique geology and an abundance of trees create fall colors that are legendary from September to mid-November.

WINTER The surrounding mountains protect Asheville from extreme weather (though fans of a few flakes may not leave disappointed). The Weather Channel named Asheville one of “America’s Safest Weather Cities”.

SPRING Spring comes early to the southern mountains and lasts a long time—from March to late May. Dogwoods, azaleas and mountain laurel are but a few highlights in a landscape full of flowers.
