Asheville and Hot Springs, NC



I recently escaped for a weekend getaway to Hot Springs, NC.  If you missed the B&B that I stayed in, see here.  While there, I also visited Asheville since our B&B was so close.  I love visiting Asheville for its beautiful scenery (Blue Ridge Parkway,  Biltmore and live "mountain" music, and trying different restaurants.)  This time was mostly spent on shopping and dining. One of my favorites was Rhubarb.  I had the most wonderful salad consisting of farro, broccoli, asparagus, purple onion, goat cheese, mint green goddess dressing along with chapata bread.  So GOOD!

Of course my husband loved Asheville since it is considered "Beer City USA".  Asheville has more than 21 craft breweries.  Craft beers are one of his favorites!  One of his favorite breweries was Wicked Weed. 







We sat outside on the patio of the restaurant.  I just adored their ceiling made of recycled tin....



While in Hot Springs, we also went to the Hot Springs Resort and Spa.  The tubs are supplied with a continuous flow of World Famous Natural Hot Mineral Water.

The tubs are located along the Spring Creek.



It was definitely worthwhile visit and the mineral water was perfect for relaxing the mind and muscles.

Have you ever experienced warm mineral water spas?

    This weekend is our son's wedding and we will be spending 2 nights at a cool downtown Los Angeles hotel - The Ace. I hope I get a chance to take pictures.
