Plan an active girls weekend getaway for your vacation to the mountains of Western North Carolina. Relax at an award-winning spa just like Michelle Obama - maybe the staff knows her secret for those awesome arms!. Live like a Vanderbilt for a day at Biltmore. Take a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Believe it or not, you can squeeze it all into a weekend.
In recent years, Asheville was the backdrop for Barack and Michelle Obama's romantic retreat in the spring of 2010. Mr. Obama visited Asheville during the campaign and enjoyed his time here so much he couldn't wait to bring his wife for a return visit. You might feel the same way about bringing your significant other back here soon so be sure to take notes while in town.
Be sure to stop by the Asheville Convention and Visitors Burea during your visit or download a visitors guide here.
