Nashville to Asheville, NC.

For a big summer finale, my mom, sister, and I decided to take a road trip from Lincoln, NE to Asheville, NC. Because my mom is the greatest, she threw out the idea several months ago and we got to work planning our route. We decided to spend a few days in Nashville, make a pit stop at Dollywood (duh) and then make our way to Asheville to see my dear friend Lyndsey. Nashville was a delight, with it’s charming neighborhoods and delicious food, while Dollywood was pretty much the most perfectly kitschy place to spend a day that I can imagine. And Asheville? Well, I love Asheville, and it doesn’t hurt that one of my very favorites lives there too. We gallivanted at the Biltmore, took some beautiful drives out to Black Mountain and Montreat, and even took a quick side trip out to Greenville, SC. When it was all said and done, we drove over 40 hours in 7 days. And? I only cried twice. So all in all, I’d say it was a roaring success.
