For the next week my girlfriend (Mefite hugandpint) and I will be in North Carolina. We're staying in Asheville until Sunday, at which point we'd like to drive somewhere interesting that's +/- 3 hours away. We'll have a rental car the entire time.
We will have sporadic bouts of free time while in Asheville. We already have an outing to the Biltmore planned - what else would you recommended that's in the area (i.e. within a 45 minute drive and preferably less)? Please note: we are not looking for restaurant suggestions - we have that covered.
The conference is only until Sunday, but we're not flying out of Asheville until Tuesday at around 3 p.m. We'd like to drive somewhere a few hours away but we really have nothing in particular in mind. Will the state/national parks be filled up at such a short notice - more to the point will cabins at parks be full as we have absolutely no camping equipment with us? Any suggestions for spots with beautiful scenery (in or not in a park) where we could stay for two nights at such a short notice? Price isn't really a constraint, though there's no arguing with cheap. Cheap is good.
Thanks for the input. While we won't be sending you a postcard, we will send you good thoughts worthwhile their weight in postcards.
