Hi Everyone- I am transitioning back to the real world after spending the week in Knoxville, Tennessee with my sissy and brother-in-law. No kids, husband, dogs or work responsibilities. As you can imagine, the week flew by! My sister and I spent a day in Asheville, North Carolina. So I get to check 2 states off my list of places to visit. Asheville is a quaint town with under 100,000 residents. Which is surprising considering the number of restaurants and breweries. There are daily farmers’ and open air markets.
Here’s a few images of our day in this cute town. I love the architecture of the buildings. When you live in the suburbs you forget about the beautiful detail and design of buildings from the past. Asheville is what it sounds like it should look like Any town that ends with “ville” is automatically given the description of cute, quaint and nestled in the mountain ranges of North Carolina.
There is a ton of construction happening in Asheville right now. We saw a lot of exteriors intact with the buildings’ interiors scraped. I love this brick building. It tells the history of the building. Love it!
We walked past this “Before I Die” wall in Asheville. You can read about the details of this wall HERE. Where have you seen a “Before I Die” wall? Asheville reminds me of the smaller neighborhoods and communities in Denver. It reminded me a little of downtown Littleton. What are your favorite small towns you have been to or live in? I would love to plan a few trips to check out the great cities in the United States.
