The weather forecast predicted it was going to be partly cloudy today, with scattered rain showers and temperatures in the mid-60’s. We decided to take a chance on the weather and tour the downtown section of Asheville, North Carolina.
Downtown Asheville is located about 10 minutes from where we are staying at the Bear Creek Campground. In no time at all we were on a self-guided walking tour of the downtown area. This is a thriving mountain city featuring an eclectic downtown filled with art galleries, restaurants, a thriving live music scene and surrounded by the awe-inspiring scenery of the Appalachian Mountains.
We arrived back at our campground late in the afternoon. We decided we needed to sample some more North Carolina BBQ for dinner this evening. While searching on the Internet, I came upon a webpage for Luella's Bar-B-Que in Asheville. We decided to give it a try. We arrived there about 5:30 p.m. The parking lot was full and the restaurant was overflowing with diners. Their BBQ was delicious, their wait staff was friendly and their service was fast and efficient.
A perfect ending to a day of adventure in Asheville.
Tomorrow, another new adventure begins!
