    If you have time and easy transportation, check out the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley. It's mostly motorcycles, but a VERY cool collection. It's about 40 miles West of Asheville.

  4. A drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway is a must, beautiful country. If you like vintage motorcycles check out Wheels Through Time museum in Maggie Valley.
    Edit: a little late, always a bridesmaid.:)

  5. My wife and I ended up there by accident a couple of years ago, we were driving to Charleston but a hurricane had other ideas so we headed for higher ground. Without knowing anything about it we had a great couple of days. The neighbourhood around the Orange Peel is pretty cool, good restaurants & bars, cool shops. The Orange Peel has been booking great bands for a very long time. Wicked Weed is a good brewery in an old service station, great patio.

    Wheels Through Time is only 45 minutes away and definitely worth the drive.

    Pay a few extra bucks and do the behind the scenes tour at Biltmore. I found it far more interesting how the servants and grounds people lived than the folks upstairs.

    I often wondered if they ever had any car shows at the Biltmore estate? that would be a great location to have one.

    ^^^Aw man....I love the Waffle House! I spent a few months working in Asheville about 20 years ago. Was in that WH nearly every day. Can’t remember the clientele tho. Wish they had them in WI. I have to travel to get my fix these days.

    WH fix, not hippie fix.

    Visited Maggie Valley and Wheels Through Time a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it and the drive through the mountains. That was where I met Snowman and Phil Prather at a hot rod run in town. Also did Asheville and The Biltmore. All good fun.

  14. Check Downtown area for the guided bus tours.. May be through the Chamber Of Commerce.. I lived near there a few years back , but recently my wife and I took one of the tours...I learned a ton about the history ,saw places that I had never seen.. Well worth the time .. Asheville is a very interesting town

    Last time we were there we stayed at the Pisgah Valley Ranch and loved it. It is off the beaten path , but you have your own cabin and a wonderful quite setting . Things to do Wheels Through Time is must do . As stated it’s mostly biker stuff , but you will still remember it for a lifetime .

  18. In 1996, the Austin Healey Club of America held their yearly conclave in Ashevillle. The car show was not on the Biltmore property but we were allowed a group photo on the front lawn. Several hundred cars with the mansion in the background made for a great picture.

    I am not aware of any other cars shows held there.

  19. You could drive around town and try to identify all of the places where Thunder Road was filmed.:D;)

  20. If your looking for an adventure and you have access to a motorcycle or a good handling sports car head on over to the Dragons Tail. Eleven miles with over 300 curves with a high pucker factor. Decent skill level required and it gets packed on the weekends . There are a few other less traveled “courses” near Asheville but I promised to keep those a secret.
