Asheville nestles between two major mountain ranges in the scenic western section of North Carolina.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Dollywood and Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Asheville: Gatlinburg (Sugarlands Distilling Company & Zipline), Pigeon Forge (Titanic Museum Attraction, Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster, & more) and Cades Cove (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park). There's lots more to do: do a tasting at Biltmore, view the masterpieces at New Morning Gallery, explore and take pictures at Blue Ridge Pkwy, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at The North Carolina Arboretum.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Asheville trip planner .

If you are flying in from Ecuador, the closest major airports are Asheville Regional Airport, Greenville Spartanburg International Airport and Tri-Cities Regional TN/VA Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Asheville can reach 14°C, while at night they dip to 1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
