We took the trolley the day after we arrived and we're glad we did. Asheville is a great little city, but we soon discovered getting around can be less than straight forward. Street names change on a seeming whim, and then change back again! Watch...More

Hi Janet, The trolleys are great in the winter for that exact reason. You can get around and still see things all while on-board the heated trolleys. Glad to hear you found the guide knowledgeable and enjoyed his narration. Come back soon!

Normally they will let you ride two days for one ticket. If you are in for the weekend it saves stress on parking. I have not confirmed but heard the Grove Park Inn ,a must see stop. Charges for parking under Omni now.
