Here, for your eyes only, is America’s best-kept travel secret: Asheville is the perfect summer destination. The small city, according to those in the know, is a “hidden gem” that remains “under-the radar” despite its superlative architecture and natural beauty. Not only can Asheville boast of having one of America’s most significant collections of Art Deco architecture, thanks to its commitment to historical preservation, but it is also surrounded by 500,00 acres of jungly fun contained within the unspoiled Pisgah National Forest. The local accommodations reflect the city’s cultural and environmental assets, with an abundance of accommodations that are as scenic as they are stylish. There’s a summer camping rental for every sophisticated nature-lover who chooses to visit Asheville … until the word gets out.
