The Scenic Paths

Drive through the Daniel Boone National Forest which encompasses a total of 635,000 acres in Kentucky.  Continuing on we will drive through the Great Smoky Mountain National Park as we make our way to Asheville, NC.  We’ll take a journey through the Blue Ridge Parkway. Start off with a visit to the Folk Art Center to admire an impressive collection of Appalachian arts and crafts, then take in the history and expansiveness of the parkway at the Blue Ridge Parkway Visitors Center.  We’ll conclude our sightseeing tour of the Blue Ridge Parkway with a mountain-top experience with a 20 mile ride out to Craggy Gardens, where stunning vistas stretch far into Tennessee.  We’ll visit the Chatlos Memorial Chapel at Billy Graham’s Training Center at The Cove.  Tour the chapel, reflect in the prayer room, and learn more about Billy Graham’s mission at his special retreat center tucked in the mountains.  Experience the work of the potter’s hand at The Village Potters where you can create your own unique piece of pottery, if you wish.


Asheville is Awesome!

We’ll head into downtown Ashville with a local guide who will share Asheville’s rich history.  There are lots of entertainment venues in the Asheville area.  We’ll enjoy the toe-tapping fun of the Blue Ridge Mountain Opry “Bluegrass and BBQ”show featuring a live performance of a variety of classic Southern, Appalachian, and Old Gospel songs.  We’ll take in a fun and lively Blissing Acapella Show at the Crest Mountain Dinner Show. This mountain-top theater serves up an elegant buffet meal with a side of entertainment that will truly warm the heart. Combine that with the talent of an acapella trip producing uniquely vibrant sound with a side of gentle humor.  To conclude our time in North Carolina, we’ll take in a performance at the Flat Rock Playhouse, a professional non-profit theatre located in the village of Flat Rock and known for its quality productions of popular musicals, comedies and dramas. We'll be seeing Turn of the Screw, a chilling and suspensful psycological thriller just in time for the Fall.  One governess, two children, and two ghosts.  Who's real? 


The Biltmore Estate

We will spend a day visiting the Biltmore Estate, America’s largest privately owned home.  Tour the impressive 250-room chateau, a wonder of architecture and hospitality, and stroll acres of formal and informal gardens designed by America’s foremost landscape architect,Frederick Law Olmsted.  Take some time to visit Antler Hill Village and the award-winning Biltmore Winery
