Hello, everyone! What did you do this weekend? I hope you were able to enjoy the lovely spring weather. Although homework had me occupied for a majority of the weekend, I was able to meet a friend for a walk around Biltmore Village. I talked about this part of Asheville in this post, but I'll give you a quick refresher. Biltmore Village is located in South Asheville, close to Asheville High School, the hospital, and of course, the Biltmore House itself. When George Vanderbilt started construction on his estate, he had his architect design a small village that would match, closely in appearance and layout, the feeling of the Biltmore House and grounds. This area today has been turned into a sort of leisure center where visitors who visit the Biltmore Estate can shop, dine, and relax. It's a beautiful little area of Asheville, and home to some famous Asheville landmarks like All Souls Cathedral and the Grand Bohemian Hotel. If you get a chance, why not explore this tiny village that allows you to enjoy contemporary Asheville and get to know better its rich historical past?
