Amazing Asheville!

We went to visit Asheville, North Carolina to plan for Creative Connections and we were immediately entranced by this small city’s natural beauty, uplifted by the unique and quirky art community, and embraced in the comfortable warmth of the people. We absolutely love Asheville and know you will too.

Both classic and cool, Asheville has a vibrant art scene with open studios, funky galleries, and offbeat exhibitions. Cafés and restaurants, independent artisan shops, and public artworks line the streets, and provide a unique local setting. There really is something new and exciting around every corner.
