Asheville, North Carolina is a cute little southern town with lots of American history in its making. We stayed at The Omni Grove Park Inn. It is an exquisite place to stay. An absolutely gorgeous resort. Cozy lobby with large fire places keep it warm and romantic for a quick winter get away. Internal restaurants and bars provide dinning with open views and lovely sunsets from the huge hotel layout. You feel like you are set back in time and wish the iPhone was never invented. Full service hotel, nice rooms that fit the decor. Do not expect modern luxury. But do expect southern charm luxury. We ate at the buffet in the hotel. An upscale food selection definitely gives everyone something they will like. A short Uber ride to downtown Asheville will give you other dinning options and the most breweries per capita I am told!  For lunch we tried 12 Bones Smokehouse. An amazing assortment of flavored rubs and sauces on ribs. I have never seen or tasted anything like the rib choices at this place. Walking off lunch we stopped at Vortex donuts. Disappointing donuts. Did not stack up to other new hip donut shops. Dinner brought us to the Red Stag Grill. A gorgeous hunting lodge kind of place. The $55 chefs tasting menu is on of the best deals in America. Civil war remnants and monuments still exist. So take pictures to preserve a slice of history while it is still available. The Sierra Nevada Brewing Company has its east coast outpost near there airport. So try to stop by before you fly home. Try the delicious double burger at the brewery restaurant and definitely go for a free tour and tasting. Also try to visit the The Biltmore Estate. It is a wonderful winter wonderland to visit as well during the Christmas season. If you live in the South and miss a White Christmas then visit Asheville in the Winter time to reminisce -Tuesday Butter-Smith
