10 Asheville Hashtags you may want to use

asheville hashtags by askasheville

Asheville Hashtags have been around for awhile. As their potential is more understood, they become more useful for a community. When you have a message you want to get across to the proper audience and channels; hashtags can come into play and help make it happen. Think about it. You can be talking to a group of people from around the world simply by using a hashtag of common interest. You can be in a conference, or you can be at home; and you can follow so much documented activity at the event, and even jump into the conversation. What is a hashtag? It is simply adding the # (pound sign) before any word, without any spaces in-between the characters, and it turns that word into a link that links to others using the same word. So we can be at a conference, never meet each other, and all use a hashtag like #avltech13 to bring all of the focused comments together. Then you can see what others are saying about the conference without having to go to each of the individual profiles of the users. This is also great for folks that cannot attend a conference as they can watch the hashtag and sometimes feel as if they were there. 


Now some people go overboard, and they #hashtag #every #word #and #make #their #whole #post #overwhelming #and #unimportant. Target your hashtags. If you are hiking with friends and take a photo of the Asheville area mountains, your post would could say something like.. #Hiking with friends in the #mountains of #Asheville. Now if you and/or your friends are in the photo, you could also hashtag #friends. All of those would apply. But do not take a photo of your dinner, and then also hashtag #beer just because they serve beer at that restaurant. There should be Beer or something heavily relating to beer in the photo or post if you are going to use the hashtag.

#Asheville #Hashtags on AskAsheville

We have set us several hashtag feeds on the new AskAsheville website. This means that you can add the “tag” or “hashtag” below and your Twitter tweet or Instagram photo will show up on our website. Here are some #hashtags that you should pay attention to:

1. The #avleat hashtag – This is the code that applies to food in Asheville NC. Of course, we like to feature good and great food in the community, so this is not a hashtag that you should use with fast food. 

2. The #avlbeer hashtag – This is the brew code of Asheville NC! If your tweets, photos and posts have to do with brew in AVL, then hashtag it with #avlbeer. 

3. The #avlnews hashtag – If you are looking for red hot, on the moment news; the #avlnews hashtag is what you should follow. Please use this hashtag with discretion. Dancing the night away in downtown Asheville is not something you should use this hashtag for. As important as you think your event is, it is many times not news.

4. The #avlhotel hashtag – Here is where you can tag anything that has to do with hotels, lodging and places to stay in the area. Have a question, answer, praise, complaint? Use this hashtag.

6. The #avldo hashtag – Have something you are doing, did, are going to, or want to do? Use this hashtag to show us and give us suggestions. For example, if you are going hiking and want to suggest it to us, just add it and your tweet or photo will show up on our “Things To Do” page.

7. The #avlmusic hashtag – The music scene in Asheville is more than enough for their own hashtag. Then all of the great acts coming into town. Use this hashtag for any music related performances and events in the area. This includes DJ’s, Karaoke, Bands, Concerts, Festivals and more.

The North Carolina Mountain State Fair 2013

North Carolina Mountain State Fair

The North Carolina Mountain State Fair just wrapped up 10 days of rides, attractions and fun at the WNC Agricultural Center on the southside of Asheville in Arden NC. We first stopped in the live animals and farming area and saw Bulls, Llamas, Horses and more. Then we headed down the hill to see all of the excitement and action. Great time for the family, couples, teens and kids. The NC Mountain State Fair is also a good place to bump into friends that we had not seen in years. So nice to see everyone!

Asheville Pubcycle

If you have been around downtown Asheville lately, you might have noticed the new Asheville Amazing Pubcycle that is being guide and rode around town by a driver and a bunch of people drinking beer. We were doing some videos last night and got a few clips of them coming up Wall Street. Asheville Beer is brewing in this community! If you are a craft beer lover, this is a great area attraction that you should definitely do!

Deliciousness at Rezaz in Biltmore Village, Asheville NC

It was Biltmore Village Restaurant Week and there were several great places to choose from. Rezaz, The Cantina at Biltmore, Fig Bistro, Ruth’s Chris, Red Stag and Corner Kitchen were all a part of this community event. We eat at all of these places regularly, because as they say.. “there is not a bad place to eat in Biltmore Village,” but we ended up calling Rezaz to see if we could make a last minute reservation. 2 hours later, we were sitting in their beautiful restaurant and eating some amazing cuisine. We bumped into a few owners of other eateries in the Asheville area while we were there, and great times were had!
