Asheville Attractions for All Ages

While we previously have outlined the benefits of an Asheville retirement in our blogs, we also want to highlight the various family activities that are happening in the western NC mountains. These activities, adventures and sites can be enjoyed by all ages and cover the gamut from hikes to museums to special musical performances.

The wide range of these attractions makes Asheville appealing for the retirement community as well as for young families who are relocating. For outdoor activities, there are numerous well-marked hikes including Parkway Trails and Montreat hikes. For the arts, the list includes Altamont Theatre and the Asheville Art Museum.  In addition, specials events such as the Drum Circle and the River Arts Studio Stroll are included. Please see our list of Family Fun on our Greybeard Rentals page to see the links for these and other suggested activities/events.

If you're thinking of relocating, trying a rental first can be a great way to sample the local atmosphere prior to deciding which local neighborhood is best for you. Check out our long-term rental listings to find the house that's just right for you. If you want more information about the area or want assistance in selecting a great long-term rental to tryout a particular neighborhood, please contact Greybeard Guest Services.

Also, we would love to hear your suggestions on other special activities and happenings that you would like to share on our Family Fun web page. Please let us know other items we should include on our list, and we will continue to update the page as we get new information.
