Felix Meana and Katie Button, veterans of elBulli in Spain, converted Asheville’s former downtown bus depot into a stylish tapas bar. Curate means to cure oneself, which diners can do with traditional Spanish dishes such as Catalan sausage...

Waynesville, NC 28786, USA
West of Asheville lies the remnants of arboreal splendor. We'd missed the 'peak weekend' of leaf-peeping along the southern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway, which meant that we also missed the heaviest traffic. Autumn vistas don't often come with...
Save Place
Cades Cove, Tennessee 37882, USA
The Smoky Mountains stands as the most visited national park in the U.S. with the Grand Canyon following close behind. With so many outdoor activities like tubing, kayaking, camping, hiking, backpacking, sightseeing, and biking, it's difficult to...

The cinnamon buns are legendary, made with the same local organic flour the bakery uses in its pizza dough. The breads, such as spinach-feta and flax-almond, change daily, with vegan and gluten-free varieties on offer. Grilled cheese sandwiches...

168 Haywood Rd, Asheville, NC 28806, USA
These hot, made-to-order doughnuts were served up by the sweetest women you've ever met. I could smell the aroma from down the street...I pulled in and the parking lot is bigger than the building itself. The shop is tiny with glowing lights...
Save Place
Chimney Rock, NC, USA
After a rigorous walk on the rails coupled with countless, grueling steps.... Cool down at the Hickory Nut Falls. Make sure to bring extra clothes because the temptation to stand at the bottom of the waterfall as the refreshing water cascades over...

Sam Knob, Cecil, NC 28716, USA
This is the best camping spot I've found so far. A little more than a mile into the hike from the parking lot, the tree and shrub lined trail opens up into a grassy bald with amazing mountain views all around. We stopped here for the night because...

371 Merrimon Ave, Asheville, NC 28801, USA
Goodness sakes, ya'll! That's a breakfast pot pie with scrambled eggs, sausage and country gravy topped with a biscuit. Can you even imagine the deliciousness? As everyone knows, there's no getting away from biscuits in the South so it's best to...
