Asheville Airport Guide

Asheville is not high on most people’s ‘must see’ parts of the US but it certainly should be. There are many marvellous architectural sights including the Biltmore Estate, a renaissance inspired French chateau with fabulous formal gardens which make you feel you have been transported to the Loire.
Another amazing building is the Basilica of St Lawrence, completed in the early part of the 20th century, it has a stunning interior and is on the list of National Historic Buildings. Elsewhere throughout the city there are countless art deco public buildings that make great subjects for photos.


Asheville Airport Directions

Asheville has its own small airport which takes only domestic flights. To get there from outside the US you’d have to make a connection at one of the major east coast airports. For international travellers, Charlotte Douglas Airport about ninety minutes away is the best point of arrival with US Airways operating a daily flight from London Gatwick. If you drive the journey, route 74 goes direct from Charlotte Airport west to Asheville.

Asheville Info

Asheville is a very popular city in North Carolina and has been acclaimed as the most beautiful city in America, the most alive city in America and has received many other plaudits. It began as a soldier’s portion of land and after a slow start to its growth, the arrival of the railroad brought industry to the city. Hit hard by the depression, Asheville took a long time to recover but today has one of the best collections of historic buildings in the US, attracting thousands of tourists each year.
