It is well organized with literature on any hotel, attraction or restaurants that you might be interested in. You can either select the info you need or ask the many guides who are there for...

The Chamber and the visitors center is a must stop for first timers to Asheville. Even locals should drop by to check out what is new.

We stopped by the visitor center on the off chance that we missed something we "should" do while in Asheville. Trip Advisor is our usual "go to" visitor center.
