The Whale A Craft Beer Collective

507 Haywood Road, Asheville, NC 28806

The Whale is our favorite place to grab a beer outside and hang out. The Whale is attached to a restaurant called Haywood Commons that's also quite good (see below).

Haywood Common

507 Haywood Road, Asheville, NC 28806

Wonderful restaurant for brunch, lunch, or dinner. Their cold brew is my favorite cold brew maybe ever.


715 Haywood Road, Asheville, NC 28806

Jargon is an upscale restaurant in West Asheville that's one of our absolute faves. You will need to make reservations in advance if you're intersted but it's very worth it.

The Admiral

400 Haywood Road, Asheville, NC 28806

Another amazing restaurant in the West Asheville area. Like Jargon, the Admiral is also a bit upscale and will need reservations.

Taco Billy

201 Haywood Road, Asheville, NC 28806

My favoriate tacos in Asheville (different than White Duck but they are both experiences you should probably have). We would recommend the veggie taco (seriously).

White Duck Taco Shop

388 Riverside Drive, Asheville, NC 28801

There are a few white ducks around - the chain is an Asheville classic! Not a traditional taco - kinda like the Epcot of tacos. Would recommend going because it’s good and people may ask you if you went here after you tell them you went to Asheville for a wedding

Simple Cafe & Juice Bar

643 Haywood Road, Asheville, NC 28806

Fantastic locale for fresh juice and a light breakfast/lunch

New Belgium Brewing Company

21 Craven Street, Asheville, NC 28806

The New Belgium Brewery is massive with a ton of indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the river. Lots of food trucks all around.

Shanghai Dumpling House

37 Biltmore Avenue, Asheville, NC 28801

Best dumplings in Asheville. The shrimp dumpings are fantastic but it's all really good.

Buxton Hall Barbecue

32 Banks Avenue, Asheville, NC 28801

Arguably the best and most famous BBQ joint in Asheville


48 Biltmore Avenue, Asheville, NC 28801

Downtown restaurant that has some southern faves

Sunny Point Café

626 Haywood Road, Asheville, NC 28806

Very chill spot for classic brunch

Leo's House of Thirst

1055 Haywood Road, Asheville, NC 28806

Insane wine bar with incredible food

Anoche Asheville

176 Clingman Avenue, Asheville, NC 28801

Cozy, gorgeous tequila bar/coffee shop. Think crafted cocktails meets dimly-lit Alemo

Ultra Coffee Bar & River Arts District Galleries

242 Clingman Ave Ext, Asheville, NC 28801

If you have time, you may want to peruse the shops and studios located all along the River Arts District. Ultra Coffee Bar is a great stop on your way to explore.

The North Carolina Arboretum

100 Frederick Law Olmsted Way, Asheville, NC 28806

If you want a shorter walk in the city limits that feels like you're walking along the Blue Ridge Mountains, check out the NC Arboretum (https://www.ncarboretum.org/) and wonder through any of these trails. Note that you may be charged a small fee for entrace and parking.

Richmond Hill Park

300 Richmond Hill Drive, Asheville, NC 28806

Richmond Hill Park is a small, wooded nature reserve with bike and hiking trails as well as a frisbee golf course. Great if you want a small, managable walk in the woods and are short on time.

French Broad River Way

220 Amboy Rd, Asheville, NC 28806

Want a walk along the French Broad River? You can get on the greenway from a range of locations from the New Belgium Brewery to Carrier Park.

Go for a Hike

If you're wanting to get out and explore, consider taking one of the hikes listed on the website linked. We've taken a few of them and enjoyed them all. Rattlesnake Lodge and Bull Gap Trailhead are quite close to Weaverville. Looking Glass Rock is particularly nice if you're looking to get out a bit more.
