New Must Visit Spots in Asheville

Asheville has long been known for its indoor attractions, outdoor activities, restaurants, and culture. And 2023 has brought many more must-visit spots to this vibrant city.

Asheville Restaurants

Several restaurants slated to open in 2023 will bring varying cuisine options and styles to Asheville, including Mikasa Criolla in the S&W Market (Peruvian) Neng Jr.’s (Filipinx), Good Hot Fish (Black Appalachia), Regina’s (NC Barbeque and Comforts), Old World Levain (OWL) Bakery (European-Inspired Pastries), Mother bread + wine (Community Café), and Crust Never Sleeps (Pastries and Breads).

Asheville Breweries

Home to almost 60 breweries, Asheville welcomes a few more in 2023. Make sure you stop by:

  • 7 Clans Brewing in Western NC (majority woman- and indigenous-owned)
  • Leveller Brewing in Weaverville (farmhouse-style ales and lagers with charcuterie sides)
  • Pink Moon Bar in West Asheville (beer and natural wine options)
  • The Hound (dog-friendly bar with food trucks).

Asheville Hotels & Lodging

Asheville hotels highlight modern design elements and culture while providing unique dining experiences for all.

  • The Restoration Asheville features The Exchange (farm-to-table restaurant), The Observatory (rooftop bar with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains), and a basement bowling alley.
  • A sprawling 55-acre Mirror Hotel is home to 18 “invisible cabins” that “disappear” into the surrounding environment.
  • AutoCamp is a new 16-luxury airstream campground with riverfront accommodations on the French Broad River.
  • New boutique hotels give a nod to Asheville’s Jazz period.  The Flat Iron Hotel, Zelda Dearest, and The Radical all call historical buildings their home too.

WNC Outdoor Experiences

North Carolina has dubbed 2023 the “Year of the Trail” as it celebrates all it offers for beautiful outdoor recreation. There are hundreds of trails within the Blue Ridge Mountains. Think biking, hiking, paddling, horseback riding, and waterfall viewing opportunities. Also, consider Asheville Wellness Tours and the North Carolina Arboretum’s firefly and sunset walks.

Asheville Arts & Culture

Asheville is well-known for its art and culture scene, and 2023 is boasting even more: Indigenous Walls Project (city-wide mural painting initiative), Center for Craft (public art installation featuring indigenous themes), Asheville Black Heritage Trail (downtown), and Hood Tour by Hood Huggers International (black history education), Chow Chow (culinary festival), and Asheville Amadeus Festival (Americana music festival).
