One of the things that attracts students to UNC Asheville is our close proximity to the downtown area. Not only are there lots of interesting shops to explore, and great restaurants and coffee shops to enjoy, but the downtown area itself is nice, too. Although it's winter, the weather has been unseasonably warm in Asheville lately, so I was able to spend some time here a few evenings ago. When the weather gets a bit warmer, I'll do another post about the downtown area to let you know more about what downtown has to offer. For now, enjoy some of the photos I snapped around sunset. Isn't it beautiful?
