- About AIR
We are so fortunate to be living in what many call: “America’s Happiest City”. The joy that is created when we gather together around a table and share stories of people and places is one that is unparalleled in our lives. Asheville boasts over 45 national and global “winner” or “best of” titles since 2011. Most recently, Asheville was hailed by National Geographic’s Traveler Magazine (June 2016) as one of the top 15 places in the world to “treat your taste buds.”We love all things Asheville, especially the unique, vibrant food and drink scene that celebrates family-owned businesses and locally sourced ingredients. We are committed to taking visitors and locals alike to some of Asheville’s most popular and renowned farm-to-table restaurants.
Ernest Hemingway, famous American author who sometimes visited Western North Carolina for its natural beauty, writes “If you are lucky enough to visit Paris, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” The same can be said of Asheville, the “Paris of the South.” This tour has something for everyone. After you get a taste of downtown – its rich history, culture, and food – you will want to come back for seconds!
