A Taste of Asheville in Atlanta

Been itching for a trip out of town but can’t get away from Atlanta this month?  Let one of the southeast’s top vacation spots come to you!

30 Days of Asheville is a month of entertainment, tastings and free goodies that showcase what the western North Carolina city has to offer.

From beer and cheese samplings to film screenings and lunchtime concerts, there’s something going on every day in March.

Asheville, a 3 and a half hour drive from Atlanta, was recently listed by Fodor’s as one of the top must-see cities in the world for 2011.  The city nestled in the Appalachian Mountains features an eclectic downtown area with shops, restaurants and art galleries, a variety of outdoor activities and a thriving live music scene.

Atlanta travelers will get to experience a trip to Asheville with food tastings each Wednesday at Murphy’s and brew tap takeovers each Thursday at Tap, plus hot air balloon rides, farm-fresh cooking classes and a flash mob surprise from the Asheville Drum Circle.

At the events you’ll be able to pick up an Atlanta VIP Card to get special deals for your next trip to Asheville.
