Asheville

Asheville nestles between two major mountain ranges in the scenic western section of North Carolina.
On the 7th (Tue), take in the exciting artwork at New Morning Gallery. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: sample the tasty concoctions at Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Tours & Tastings, then take in nature's colorful creations at The North Carolina Arboretum, and then indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour.

For maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Asheville day trip tool.

New York City to Asheville is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Traveling from New York City in April, you will find days in Asheville are somewhat warmer (69°F), and nights are about the same (45°F). Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Thu) early enough to go by car to Cherokee.

The center of Cherokee culture in the eastern part of the country, the town named after this Native American tribe serves as a base camp for hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains.
On the 10th (Fri), let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, then see the interesting displays at Museum of the Cherokee Indian, and then admire the sheer force of Dry Falls. Keep things going the next day: try your luck at Casino at Harrah’s Cherokee, see the interesting displays at Wheels Through Time Transportation Museum, and then take in the dramatic scenery at Mingo Falls.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Cherokee trip simple and quick.

Getting from Asheville to Cherokee by car takes about 1.5 hours. In April, plan for daily highs up to 69°F, and evening lows to 42°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
