mini road trip to Asheville

When we were away, we had our first child free 48hours in 2years.  We took a mini road trip to Asheville, North Carolina and loved it.  We would both definitely go back, and next time go on to Nashville, which was our original plan, but didn’t have enough time.

There are many independent stores, great places to eat with amazing food, micro-breweries, art spaces, and places to just sit and people watch.  We had brunch in the French Broad Chocolate Lounge, which as the name suggests, it is a chocoholic’s heaven.  Lots of hot and cold chocolate drinks to choose from, cakes and truffles to try.  Some other places we ate were Curate, Lab, and Limones.  Other good places to visit for food, that we didn’t have time for are, The Admiral, Table, and Tupelo Honey Cafe, to name just a few.

Garage 34 was full of local independent prints and clothes, The Mast General Store full of touristy gifts, wooden toys and sweets, great thrift stores down Lexington St and a really cool menswear store we spent quite a while in called Old North Clothing.

We had to visit the SkyBar at the top of the Flat Iron Building, to see the mountains and try a cocktail.

A memorable and relaxing 48hours.

3years ago we went on our honeymoon – a California road trip. We spent some time in Joshua Tree and stayed at the Joshua Tree Inn. It is an amazing place, and it was the same time as Coachella was going on nearby. I would love to go back one day, stay at the Inn and go to Coachella…dreams come true right?

Happy weekend x
