4 of the Best Ways to Have a Wonderful New Year’s Eve in Asheville, NC
1. Enjoy a Beautiful Hike
One of the most popular things to do here is to go hiking. It is not only full of adventure but also romantic as well. The first of the trails we would like to point out is Linville Falls. This area is off of the Blue Ridge Parkway and about 60 miles north of Asheville. There are 5 viewpoints that you can hike to and each of them is stunning. One of them is considered strenuous, but the rest of them are an average hike. Be sure to bring your camera as these falls need to be remembered. Our next trail that we want to highlight is The Appalachian Trail. It’s not every day that you can hike and enjoy such a famous trail. There are many trailheads that go off of the Appalachian Trail, so be sure to have a look at all of the options. If you are wanting to hike but stay in town, then consider taking a stroll along Asheville’s Urban Trail. This is an easy 1.7-mile walk that takes you throughout Asheville and has interesting stops and statues along the way. This is a self-guided tour that has a total of 30 points of interest along the way.
