Asheville with toddler

Recommended Posts

I'm getting cabin fever, so after the little guy's stomach bug clears up, we want to do an extended weekend in Asheville, NC. What are some fun things to do with a toddler, places to eat, stay, etc?


We plan to keep a nice, slow pace, and not worry about getting to every little thing. We're from the north, so we don't mind a bit of cold for outdoorsy stuff. Toddler-friendly and medium-to-low crowds would be great. GF dining options would be awesome, but not necessary. A hotel with a pool would be lovely! We're already thinking of spending a day at Biltmore unless the hive thinks that's a terrible idea at this time of year and with a toddler. I'd rather do it in the summer to see the gardens, but I'm having a baby then!

Biltmore with a toddler can be challenging. Our oldest did fine, but our younger 2 were FAR too active and curious to do well inside the house.


The WNC Nature Center can be a nice break, and they do reciprocal admission if you happen to be a member of an AZA Zoo.


ETA: If the weather is pretty and it's open, the farm exhibit at Biltmore is fun. I'm not sure when it opens, though.


Malaprops bookstore downtown is a fun place to stop in for a break. I wish we had something similar here.
