The best part of moving to a brand new city or community is the exploration. By the time you’re all unpacked and settled into your new apartment, all you want to do is get out and see how the locals live. White Oak Grove is so close to some of the best tourist attractions and activities in Asheville and we’ve narrowed down a few of our personal favorites. If you need to get out of your apartment, let us show you the highlights of your brand new community.
Everyone’s hometown has their own version of a historic, lively downtown area — and that is where the Asheville Downtown Association comes in. Just a five minute drive from the White Oak Grove apartment complex is Asheville’s vibrant, thriving downtown scene — filled to the brim with small business shops, art galleries, and free and guided walking tours, all centered around numerous breweries and restaurants. Walking up and down these streets is the ideal way to spend Friday nights or weekend afternoons, just taking in our city’s personality. Grab dinner and drinks anytime and keep a close eye on all the holiday and special calendar events.
The River Arts District
Now, let’s say that downtown isn’t quite your scene — that’s okay! Let us also introduce you to Asheville’s River Arts District. Also within walking distance of your new apartment is a whole line of restaurants, stores and art studios along the French Broad River. Unleash your inner foodie and sip on craft beer and wine while listening to live music; browse a whole street of eclectic galleries where local artists are constantly practicing their craft. Spend a warm afternoon shopping for new pieces to fill your new home and grab coffee while you’re down there.
The Historic Biltmore Estate & Village
An easy must-do if you’re new to the Asheville area is the Historic Biltmore Estate & Village, located just 15 minutes maximum from White Grove. Marvel at the 8,000 acre Vanderbilt Mansion estate, the largest private home in the entire country. Walk through these historic walls housing nearly 200 bedrooms; book a beautiful rooftop tour with birds-eye views; visit the gardens and stop for an on-site wine tasting. Or, head just a little bit to the right and check out the Biltmore Village shopping district for a real modern royalty feel. Covering everything to do at this modern United States castle requires more than one trip and is perfect for an adventure outside of the apartment.
