Downtown After 5 in Asheville North Carolina

We got a chance to hang out at Asheville’s Downtown After 5 this past Friday and we had a great time. It was packed out with people, beer, food, music, vendors and more.

Downtown After 5 goes on from May 18 – September 21, 2012 on the 3rd Friday of every month.

We got to see lots of friends out at this event. We look forward to several more throughout the Asheville Summer!

Aloft Asheville Downtown – and several other wonderful hotels

In a new wave of incredible hotels coming to the Asheville area, Aloft breaks ground downtown. Here is a photo of the building site where the hotel will sit. You can see the Hot Dog King building to the far right.

Aloft will be among other exquisite boutique style hotels in the area such as the Asheville Hotel Indigo which is a hop, skip and a jump away, and the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Biltmore Village which is about 2 miles down the road, right in front of the entrance to fabulous Biltmore Estate.

The Hotel Indigo and Aloft will be the top preference for tourists who wish to stay and experience downtown Asheville without having to drive several miles to get back to your room.

Here is a screenshot from the Aloft website:
