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.
