Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, Asheville is perhaps best known as the location of George Vanderbilt`s Biltmore Estate and the home of major American novelist, Thomas Wolfe. This town of less than 100,000 people has 17 farmers` markets, and the local restaurant scene is all about taking advantage of the seasonal produce sold there. Travelers can imagine what it's like to live in the lap of luxury at Biltmore before hitting the open road on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Asheville is also a popular jumping-off point for some of the best whitewater rafting tours in North Carolina. Most of Ashevilles treasures are found in the great outdoors.
