My boyfriend and I took a one-day trip to Asheville and started after lunch time with a tour on the white trolley. It's a beautiful, open air ride that takes a little under two hours. You can also get off at stops to walk around and get back on the next hour. It was a great way to see downtown Asheville (and a few other spots) and get an idea of how we wanted to spend the rest of our day there.
I took my digital camera because you have a chance to take PLENTY of pictures. You also might want to take a sweater in the late summer/early fall because it can get a little chilly if the wind picks up.
Our driver and tour guide was Brian and he was an absolute delight! He was very knowledgeable, which always makes a tour more enjoyable. Also, he got free fudge for us from Kilwin's. :-D Thanks for a great introduction to the area, Brian!
