Asheville, NC

Before checking out from The Homestead we had breakfast in the dining room and used our resort activity credit to take the shuttle up to the ski lodge and try our hand at archery. Lots of fun, but we made it a quick stop, because we didn’t want to get sun-burned. Then we headed south through the Allegheny and Appalachian Mountains to Asheville, North Carolina.

Along the way we stopped at the King Tut Drive In for an authentic drive-in experience, complete with car hop service. The menu is extensive, to say the least.

In Asheville we checked in to a lovely one bedroom condo at The Residences at Biltmore, and then drove to Greenlife, a Whole Foods spinoff, to pick up some supplies for breakfasts.

We had an excellent dinner at Fig, a nearby bistro. It was the cheapest, and one of the best meals of the trip.

After some chill time back at the condo, we headed for the local cineplex, and the 12:04am showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2.
