From an award-winning food scene to rooftop bars that showcase the city skyline with the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville does more than just craft beer. On any night you can enjoy live music, dancing, and the art scene, including the Rivers Art District with its own flavor of restaurants, galleries, and shops. Need a reboot from your night out? See our Top Brunch and Breakfast Spots in and around Asheville like Sunny Point Cafe, the original Tupelo Honey, and more.

Let's be real, a true bachelorette weekend must include some pampering! Asheville's long-running reputation (since the 1800s!) as a destination for relaxation and healing means you have access to many different ways to pamper! The high concentration of practitioners in yoga, bodywork, holistic health, and alternative therapies means you can choose from some of the best spas, treatments, and varied experiences during your getaway in Asheville.
