Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains,
Asheville, NC boats a fun mix of street art, music, good food, local beer and outdoor adventures.
If you love beer, you'll love Asheville.
With more breweries per capita than anywhere else in the country.
The French Broad River flows right through town
Perfect for kayaking, tubing, or even whitewater SUP
which is a lot harder than it looks!
While you're in town, make sure to visit America's largest home
George Vanderbilt's "Biltmore Estate".
Today we're hiking through the forest,
looking for edible plants, berries, mushrooms,
It's part of a foraging tour
with a company called "No Taste Like Home"
Milky or pex milk-cap
The ones we're looking for are called "leatherbacks"
After foraging in the forest,
we visited the Marketplace Resaurant
where they turned our edibles into a tasty meal.
The Blue Ridge Parkway is only 20 min away
It's one of America's great scenic road trips
and a perfect place to go hiking.
Pisgah National Forest is also close
with fun waterfalls like Looking Glass & Sliding Rock
A crazy, natural rock waterslide!
