We made a side trip from Asheville to visit Black Mountain, as a number of folks in Asheville suggested. The town has a main street that is cute, and some nice shops, but overall it seemed crowded and overly busy for such a small place...More

I am surprised by some of the reviews mentioning bad attitudes of people in Black Mountain. We spent around 4-5 hours there on an overcast Sunday afternoon, walking around, shopping, and dining.

Black mountain is a good place to stop, eat, shop, walk around and just take a load off your mind. Do your homework before you go and find the "cool" off the main street place to shop.

We spent the day walking the town and all of the wonderful quaint shops. Beautifully kept and clean. It was great going into the unusual shops that you don't normally see. Wish we could have had longer to visit, but will definitely return.

About 30-45 minutes south of Black Mountain, up and down SR 9. Many ways to get there off I40.
