Last spring, a crew from the National Geographic Travel channel came to Asheville to film a documentary about the city and the lifestyle! Asheville By Design (S01E30) manages to get a lot into a 30 minute runtime, including some of our top attractions, most beautiful views (difficult choices there) and a lot about the amazing local culture and art scene. We have the artists, we have the music, we have the breweries… We have everything and NatGeo does a great job of showcasing it. They even highlight our vibrant farm-to-table movement, which is where Olivette comes in! In all honesty we’re barely in there, blink and you’ll miss it, but it’s a great documentary that really gives a feel for our incredible city and community.
A few of the attractions featured include Asheville Bee Charmer, the Asheville Drum Circle, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Biltmore estate, Chai Pani, the Dog Door, Highland Brewing, the Omni Grove Park Inn, Rhubarb and of course the River Arts District. So we’re (just barely) in very good company!
You can watch the episode online by clicking below, and it’s also available on demand through some cable providers if you missed it when it originally aired.
Asheville By Design: Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Asheville has a history of craft and creativity, cool mountain air, and breathtaking attractions.
