Lots of information, helpful people. We took the Hop On Hop Off Tour so we started our sightseeing from the Center. We asked one of the volunteers for a suggestion for lunch and she gave us great options.

This is one of the best Visitor Centers I have ever been to. It has pamphlets on pretty much everything there is to do in and around Asheville, a great little gift shop, and the trolley tours start and end here.
