    We did the Christmas tour at night. The light was too dim to see some of the tapestries. At times, the areas were too crowded. The audio player gave a very good explanation of the various areas. I would have like for the numbers to be in some kind of order. I was disappointed that the gardens were empty but was amazed by the conservatory of flowers.
    This is my 2nd visit to the Biltmore and once again, was blown away by this estate. This is the place I tell my friends that the must see,

    We visited in October-prime leaf season. There were 2 fabulous exhibits there: a special bonsai garden exhibit and an amazing Nat Geo animal photography exhibit. The grounds were breathtakingly beautiful, well laid out and accessible. There were several stunning gates throughout the garden. And the garden cafe was amazing!

    We stopped off at the Folk Art Center to have a look around. The building is very well done, and we enjoyed looking at the arts and crafts on display. The exhibits are well designed and include informative signs. The items for sale in the gift shop are extremely high quality, and we enjoyed shopping there. This place is well worth a stop when on the Blue Ridge Parkway

    We enjoyed our visit to this active museum even though our pinball history was in the 50's and they did not have too many working that were from that era. Loved a baseball one we remembered where the metal players run around the bases for the hits you get. We were amazed the place was full of people paying $15 for unlimited play. Definetely recommend.

    However, we are in our 80's and I use a power wheelcchaiir. There were no handicapped spaces on the main street. There was one, occupied, around the corner and a ramp to reach the level of the pinball museum. Someone pulled out of the parking lot across the street and we took the corner spot. An hour later we camed out and had a $20 parking ticket for parking in a permit only lot. The sign was very obvious we just did not see it. We live in a tiny Georgia town so permit lots are not something we are accustomed to. My GA handdicapped card was in the windshield and a manual wheelchair and walker plainly visible in our backseat. I don't know what wheelchair visitors are supposed to do in that area. Be careful

    We went on a rainy day, and we weren't sure if they would allow us to come in and look around. We were surprised that the church had quite a few people in it. People were sitting in small groups and talking....we thought maybe a service had just concluded. The gentleman at the door invited us in and told us we were free to look around and take pictures. He was very nice and welcoming. The church is absolutely stunning on the inside. The architecture, the art, and the condition of the church are all amazing. I highly recommend seeing this wonderful place.

    Visitor center was the start point for the Hop on/off Trolley - lots of information, clean bathrooms and parking.

    This is a cute little interest spot next to Grove Park Inn. We parked here with permission to grab lunch at the Inn.....long story but no lunch available there. The ladies in the gallery were so very kind and explained that Mondays were slow in October (imagine that) and nothing was open except their place. Since they were kind enough to let us park in their lot, ($25 to self park at the Inn - what) we toured their gallery and found a wonderful collection of art pieces and crafts and more charming staff members.

    nice experience being able to see the different artistic work. Jewelry, paintings, needlework. It will take a few minutes to wander through it all and the building brings back memories of the old Woolworth store.

    A nice little zoo — the AZA accreditation makes a real difference, as we never had to worry about the treatment of the animals (they all had adequate space and everything was clean). Very nice viewing sites for the black bears and the wolves especially. Not a lot to eat and a pretty quick experience, but there were also loads of activities cor younger kids, which we did not use but we saw others using.

    They offer pre-made flights, but if you want to sub one out you can. Smoking is allowed on the deck. $14 flights with tons of seating outdoors. The view of the river was great! I did the free tour with a free tasting. It was 45 minutes, a good history lesson, the tour guide was so-so though. Not the best tour I've been on. Huge venue and worth stopping by.

    Enjoyable, low key tour of the boarding house that provided Thomas Wolfe material for his first novel set in Asheville. State and National Historical Site. Tour guide did a great job.

    Nice little ranger station up there at a pretty high altitude. The drive there from Asheville is rather twisty and turning but pleasant, with great views. You can buy gifts and books at the ranger station. Bathrooms can be closed, especially late in the season. Best to go before driving up there because otherwise it is porta potties.

    We got off the trolley here - too early in the day for much activity and wasn't sure about the area. Came back another day to visit one of the breweries and walk through one of the buildings which was closing at 5.

    What a cool experience. The kids had a blast and the adults had a fun time too! We went with the big bucket and it entertained 4 very determined and energetic kids for a little over 30 minutes. Which was pretty good. Highly recommended!
