One of the largest cities in North Carolina is Asheville. Even though Asheville does not have the largest population in the state, it caters to almost 100,000 people spread throughout 44.9 square miles of land mass. Asheville is located near the Blue Ridge Mountains and the French Broad River. Since Asheville is in the southern region of North Carolina, its climate is considered humid and subtropical, allowing for hot and humid summer months. A summer vacation rental with a pool near Asheville allows glampers to take a refreshing dip in the privacy of their own private pool. Across town, glampers can head to Black Mountain that offers stunning views of the city center. A trip to the North Carolina Arboretum is a refreshing way to view the botanical gardens and flora of the city.
