About the location

Asheville, North Carolina is a strange little city. It's bohemian, healthy, super liberal but still pretty Southern. I've spent the last four months living 20 minutes outside of Asheville, almost accidentally, with my girlfriend and dog. We've found it a great place to be quarantined, but I've also realized that it has the ability to be a safe and still a very enjoyable place to visit for those who need to get out and travel but are a little nervous to do so because of COVID-19. Especially in downtown, people and restaurants have been conscious of what is going on and practicing social distancing. 

That being said, even though nothing is normal right now, the mountains out here are gorgeous, the waterfalls and rivers are still running. The beer is running almost as fervently and straight from the breweries themselves. So...just get your ass to Asheville, go on a hike, catch a gorgeous mountainous view, have a beer...have a few beers and try and enjoy yourself.
