    A fun introduction to downtown Asheville

    The interactive map for the Asheville Urban Trail offers just enough guidance to make the full circuit for an enjoyable few hours introduction to downtown. Expect a bit of urban grittiness, and a wide variety of cool and unique shops and restaurants. Many of the malls and stores are dog-friendly. On sunny days, look for shady areas to listen to the audio tour clips. Bring an extra battery if your phone struggles to get through a day.

    Nice walk through Downtown Asheville

    My wife found the Urban Trail information last night and we decided today was a great day to do it. The trail consists of 30 art installations throughout downtown that are easily accessible while walking on the sidewalks. Traffic wasn’t an issue on an early Sunday morning. Everything is outdoors and very interesting to see and locate. Using the online map is very helpful or you can just follow the feather arrows around town. Starts in front of the Asheville Art Museum. A lot of business have water bowls for dogs outside to enjoy on the journey. Plenty of dog friendly restaurants are also on the trail.
