Plan a family getaway
One of the most important things about this time of year is spending time with family. Indulging in delicious food with them. Having fun rolling in the snow together. Vacationing together. Make sure that your precious time with your loved ones is not interrupted by any mundane, daily worries and escape to the mountains with your loved ones. Check out the stunning cabins full of wintery, forest charm that we have waiting for you right here.
Find the perfect Christmas Tree
Did you know that the area around Asheville is known for producing some of the best Christmas trees in the world? In fact, North Carolina is one of the largest producers of Christmas trees in the country. You might even have one in your house right now!
During your stay, take a trip to a local Christmas tree farm and find your family's perfect Christmas tree. Now that is a holiday tradition we are sure everyone will love.
Yes! Biltmore is open and what a wonderful place to visit during the holidays. Nobody can do the holidays quite like the Biltmore can. Reserve your spot now so that you can indulge in an evening full of sparkle, magic, candlelight and firelight all set to the tune of live choirs and soloists. You don’t want to miss this extravaganza reminiscent of the first Vanderbilt family Christmas in 1895!
Don't Miss the Grove Arcade
Each year the Grove Arcade turns itself into a winter wonderland. This year, from November 20th through January 4th, the entire historic shopping center will transform into a tinsel paradise. Plus, the Grove Arcade will also display some of the entries from the gingerbread house competition held at the Grove Park Inn. So, if you desire some holiday shopping, this is definitely the place you will want to go. It will be a fun excursion for the whole family!
Polar Express Great Smoky Mountain Railroad
If you have kids or are just a big kid at heart, then you won't want to miss this holiday tradition – The Polar Express Train excursion at the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. The round-trip train departs the Bryson City depot and is about an hour and a half long. The ride is set to the soundtrack of the movie, The Polar Express. Riders will enjoy warm cocoa and cookies while reliving the magical story. The ride takes passengers to the “North Pole” where kids will be thrilled to find Santa Claus waiting. Santa boards The Polar Express, greeting each child and presents each with a special gift as in the story, their own silver sleigh bell. This is a wonderful and heartwarming tradition you need to add to your family's Asheville Christmas!
Family time is the best time
The holidays are all about focusing on your family. Getting away with them. Spending quality time with them. Taking off work so you can build more memories with them. You need to make sure that you not only have more time to spend with your family during the holidays this year, you also must focus on your family to truly build those special memories you are longing for. Turn off the tv. Really talk. Sit by the fire and tell jokes. Cook together. Laugh. Share what is in your heart with your nearest and dearest. You won't regret it!
Hit the slopes
Of course, you can’t sit around all day indoors, no matter how charming and cozy the cabin nor how delicious the food. Which is why, during the holidays, you should head out to Cataloochee Ski Area and indulge in a little skiing! After all, the more trips you take down the hill, the brisk wind whipping your face, the more eggnog and cake you can indulge in later.
