Welcome to the Asheville Area!
Asheville, NC and the Smokey Mountain area is alive with tourist attractions, outdoor activities, unique events and a wide variety of culinary treats. You won’t be bored or hungry when you stay at Wildberry Lodge!
Maybe you already know this, but Asheville was BEER CITY USA – four years in a row! We have more than a twenty microbreweries and dozens of places to taste all of the brews along with great food.
A few of our favorites hang outs are:
Jack of the Wood, located at 95 Patton Avenue in downtown Asheville: Sundays are always Irish Jam session and Thursdays are Bluegrass Jam session. They have a house band and special invited guest bands on the weekends and some weekday nights. We recommend the Greenman ESB!
Thirsty Monk, located in the purple building at the corner of Patton Avenue and Coxe (across the street from Jack of the Wood): this pub specializes in Belgium and Belgium-style beers (yummy).
Asheville Brewing Company, with two locations: 77 Coxe Avenue and 675 Merrimon Avenue (north of Asheville). The pizza is fabulous and the beer, of course, is great! The Merrimon Avenue location has an unusual combination of pub and movies.
There are many, many more to choose from, but these will get you started.
