Getting around

Asheville is an active Lyft and Uber city. There is a public transit system (ART) but it does not come within walking distance of the house. Taxi cabs of course are always an option as well. There are many places that, once there, no car is needed. Downtown Asheville is a wonderful place for a night out with music, art, and gourmet food. Be sure to catch a show while you’re there and stop by the Chocolate Lounge for some exquisite artisan chocolate confections. Biltmore park has the largest movie theatre in Asheville, great restaurants and lots of familiar stores and unique boutiques. Don’t forget the sweet shop for some ice cream or fudge (I know where all the good chocolate is). West Asheville is has relaxed, bohemian vibe, a vibrant farmers’ market and wonderful mom’n’pop restaurants. You won’t find a chain store in West Asheville. The River Arts district has a myriad of artists’ studios. You’ll find glass-blowing, pottery, metalwork as well as great food (12 Bones Barbecue is there!). Drive East a bit on I-40 to Black Mountain’s wonderful small crafty downtown. There’s a Kilwin’s there for chocolate too.
