Over spring break, my family drove to Asheville, North Carolina, for an extended weekend trip. Despite having visited the town several times, it always seems like a new place to me.

Asheville has experienced a population growth of nearly 30% since 2000, but it’s not just that growth that has changed the town. It has also managed to keep its downtown alive and thriving with its high-quality restaurants, stores, museums and arts venues. Additionally, as my 7-year-old daughter noticed, it has an abundance of ice cream shops!
