Home of Asheville

The native Cherokee tribe called them "great blue hills of God." We call them home. The majestic mountains of Western North Carolina, the Great Smokies and The Blue Ridge Mountains (home to the Parkway), surround the city of Asheville and embrace "The Greater Asheville Area."
 
You're invited to a grand North Carolina mountains vacation where, in the late 1800s, George Vanderbilt chose to build his summer home. That home - the 255 room Biltmore House - is still America's largest private residence.
 
For many years now Asheville has been a top destination for travelers seeking a climate that's rich in art, literature, history and local mountain heritage. After all, author Thomas Wolfe was born here and poet Carl Sandburg chose to call Flat Rock home.
 
Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Firestone, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, also came here to enjoy our hospitality and rest, relax and renew their creativity and appreciation for life.
