Basilica of Saint Lawrence
#2 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
Quite wonderful, the views from the side terraces, the altar and open welcoming presence are a welcome embrace of the Divine.
The Basilica is a well preserved Catholic Church completed in 1909 and is a National Historic Site.
Grovewood Village
#3 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
Car Museum, Local Art & Shoppes, and the old wool factory make this a must stop for all before stepping into the Omni for breath taking views of the Blue Ridge mountains!
Plan to go at a time when you can join the excellent tour to view the old handmade looms and other production equipment--it was like a glimpse back in time.
Southern Highland Craft Guild Folk Art Center
#4 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
This is a must stop site on the Pkwy.It includes a ranger station and small Parkway souvenir shop as well as a large Southern Highlands Guild shop of excellent quality crafts covering a wide range of Appalacian cr...
The Folk Art Center is a lovely place to view spectacular southern artistry - pottery, wood, metals, glass, textiles all on display and many for sale.
McCormick Field
#5 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
The Asheville Tourists minor league baseball team (Colorado Rockies affiliates) play here and is a wonderful experience Seats are very close to the field providing an excellent view of the action.
There is also reasonably priced food and drink available on site.
Riverside Cemetery
#6 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
Nice place to get away from the city bustle and take a quiet, shaded walk along the winding, hilly paths between the historic grave sites, the likes of Thomas Wolfe and O. Henry.
We went here to see the grave site of O Henry aka William Sydney Porter.
Thomas Wolfe Memorial
#7 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
We toured the site in the company of a young enthusiastic guide whose information provided interesting insights into the development of this effusive talent.
Located in the heart of downtown Asheville, the Thomas Wolfe Memorial is one of North Carolina’s most popular state historic sites.
Asheville Drum Circle
#8 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
This is where all the action is and the best seating - otherwise you standing on the outside with limited view of all the happenings.
You will surely see some sights!
Cathedral Of All Souls
#9 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
They have a docent on site that will provide information on the history of the church.
Church is not to far from Biltmore so after attending service went back to view the estate some more.
River Arts District
#10 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
You can walk or drive from warehouse to warehouse and view everything from textiles, glass-blowing, pottery, painting, photography, and basket-weaving and antiques.
Go during the week, it’s quieter and easier to engage the artists and given the number of artists and the geographic spread between the sites, allow for plenty of time, This really is a two-day exercise.

Pack Square
#11 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
The Pack Square area of Asheville is very good-looking and historically interesting, so if the weather is a bit foul, as it was during our recent visit, you should still visit to enjoy the sights.
This is the site where you will find all the festivals in Asheville, right downtown.
Biltmore Village
#12 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
The Biltmore Village is a nice way to spend the day, shop & have a delicious lunch or dinner at one of the many restaurants on site.
There's lots of shopping to do, there's lots of sights to see, things to do and people to meet.
Grove Arcade
#13 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
Make it a point to stop at the Grove Arcade just to view the architecture -it's unique and beautiful.
Walking through the shops and looking at the architecture is worth making the trip to this landmark!
Urban Trail
#14 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Asheville
The locations are numbered and as part of a public arts program there are brass plaques which tell the history and there is often some sort of art like a top hat, a cart, tools, etc. at the site and that art is re...
The Thomas Wolfe Memorial State Historic Site, honoring the author of LOOK HOMEWARD, ANGEL, is also on the trail.
