Imagine the perfect spring road trip. ;en think of the enchanting mountain town of Asheville, NC, as your base camp, the hub from which unique, glorious and memorable travels are found right in town, or an hour up country roads in North Carolina,
down to the Greenville, SC, area and over to the north Georgia mountains, all of
which wind through the highest elevations in the eastern United States. ;at’d be a
good spring exploration!
Maybe you’ll head northeast on Highway 19 to discover Mount Mitchell and the
Penland School of Cra;s. Head a little further northeast on Highway 221 to reach
Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls, Blowing Rock, or Boone, even into Tennessee. Or turn back southwest toward Georgia along U.S. Route 23 to Cherokee and
Highlands. ;en turn back east toward Greenville, SC, along Hwy 123. All the while
traveling roads framed by blooming wild azaleas, dazzling dogwoods, broad stands
of rhododendron, and streams and waterfalls ;ush from spring rains.
