We’re updating the old adage of “April showers bring May flowers” into ”April’s Here, Grab a 9-Iron and a Beer, and Let’s Cheer!” WNC is blessed with an abundance of great golf, both public and private, as well as a plethora of breweries, live music and more. And we’re celebrating all the great things to do this spring in Asheville NC!
Forest Bathing in Asheville
What The Heck Is It? Relax, this does not involve removal of clothing or bathing with water. The concept of Forest Bathing comes to us courtesy of Japan, where back in the 1980’s researchers observed that those who took time to get outside and immerse themselves in nature had reduced stress, improved mental clarity and higher functioning immune systems. Asheville Wellness Tours offers Forest Bathing Tours so you too can slow down, relax and fully experience what the forest has to offer.
Music in Asheville is Back
The Orange Peel Is Re-Opening! After more than a year of being closed and amid concern that the closure would be permanent, Asheville’s renowned Orange Peel announces live shows for 2021 beginning April 30th with Woody Platt & Graham Sharp of the Steep Canyon Rangers. More shows are being added daily. For more information on the Orange Peel’s plans for safe live shows, click here.
