Hi - I plan to fly into Asheville NC on a direct evening flight. (I've been to the biltmore; I’m not interested in touring Asheville) Does my proposed itinerary seem doable. I’d like to divide my trip into 2 different areas. Welcome anyone’s suggestions!
Thurs Night Late arrival Asheville Airport-Rent car at airport -Stay overnight @ Asheville Airport Hotel.
Day 1 - Drive to Blowing Rock
Days 2-5 - Stay in Blowing Rock (4 nights) - see sites in the area
Day 5 - Travel to Waynesville or Bryson City (I’m leaning towards Waynesville)
Day 6-9 - Stay in Waynesville (4 nights) - day trips to various sites and day trip to GSMNat’l Park, Newfound Gap (Max Patch or Waterrock Knob)
Day 9 - Travel Late Afternoon to Asheville/Stay at overnight @ Asheville Airport Hotel.
Day 10 - Catch morning flight home from Asheville Airport
Bryson City looks nice and closer to the parks, but it’s more driving from Blowing Rock and then more driving back to Asheville. I like to hike, paddle board, walk around town and perhaps see a lake - I’ve seen enough waterfalls, unless there is an incredible one, I’d rather see the mountains!
