Yipee!!! Fall Break in Asheville, NC

Fall Break in Asheville, NC

There is a benefit to having your husband travel 5 days out of the week……….Reward points!!!!  We are able to rack up points and use them for hotels!  We decided to take a weekend and go to one of our favorite places.  We’ve come about 4 or 5 times before.  It’s Asheville, NC.

Not only does Asheville have Biltmore Estates, but it has a beautiful town with lots of cool shops and restaurants and the mountains are all around!!  This time, Nick used his points for a stay at Hotel Indigo.  (They have a couple in Nashville.)  It is a cool beautiful boutique hotel in downtown Asheville.  Look at the pictures!!!

I used a Groupon coupon for the Jerusalem Garden Café.  This was a Middle Eastern restaurant that cooked with fresh local ingredients. (I think most all of the restaurants do that here.)  We also had entertainment with a band and a belly dancer.  We had a three course meal and it was delicious.  We started with a spinach pie as our appetizer, I had the chicken kabobs (I couldn’t make myself eat lamb!) and we had baklava for dessert.

Urban Outfitters:  I can make that!

Our hotel at night

  We had fun and then we walked around downtown and looked at some of the interesting shops.  (There are a lot of fair trade stores and I found some nice things for birthday gifts. We are back in our room calling it an early night.  Who knows……maybe we will hike at Chimney Rock and visit a local church tomorrow?
