The First Couple Head to Asheville, North Carolina for A Week-end Getaway

Posted by: Audiegrl

President Obama and the First Lady head to Asheville, North Carolina this weekend for a week-end getaway.

The historic city of Asheville, on the edge of the Appalachian Mountains features a funky and eclectic downtown, more than 30 art galleries, a large culinary scene and one of the most spectacular estates ever constructed in this country.

Its location just off the famous Blue Ridge Parkway, which connects the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with the Shenandoah National Park, makes it a great launching point for tourists looking to hike, bike or go rafting.

Look for more posts, photos and videos of the trip over the weekend.

  1. They sure deserve a break. And Michelle is still the most beautiful First Lady we’ve ever had. (Sorry, Jackie O).

    • I’ve never been to Asheville, so I look forward to seeing more photos and footage of the First Couples visit. You’re right, they do deserve some time to themselves to just relax. 🙂
