Synopsis: The third edition of the best-selling guide to Asheville, North Carolina. Fourth edition now available. Finding your way in Asheville 2011/2012
From the Inside Flap: How to use this book:
This guide is based on the way real people really visit a city, or at least the way we think real people should really visit a city. Going to eight different places in distal parts of town in one day not only wastes nonrenewable resources and generates air pollution, it fritters your valuable tourist time. There is more to life than driving and parking. Walking, particularly in a city of Asheville's walkable scale, generates memories of gargoyles and trees and flowers and bricks and faces and sounds and smells. Real stuff. Driving generates memories of your dashboard and your windshield and your rear-view mirror and that irritating grinding metallic noise somewhere under the hood that you are praying isn't going to be as expensive as it sounds. Warning! Warning! Warning! Warning! Warning!
If your idea of a great vacation is shopping at a mall (or, shudder, an outlet mall) and eating at national chain restaurants, you have just wasted your money on this book. Now would be a good time to return to the independent bookseller where you bought it and politely ask for a refund. Yes, Virginia, Asheville has a mall and a lot of chain restaurants and if you need a guide book to find them you are in a kind of trouble that we are not qualified to address.
Look under "Counselors" in the Yellow Pages.
We are not going to direct you to national chain anything. We have mentioned tiny regional chain somethings if we decided they are unique enough to warrant it. The only exception to this rule is a local health-food grocery chain that has become a big player in its field. But we both remember when it lived in a tiny, funky storefront downtown and we share a little (unwarranted) pride in its success.
