There aren't too many things that can beat the restorative sensation of the great outdoors. Head to Bent Creek Experimental Forest to get your fix.
It awaits you in Asheville, which is 220 miles (354 kilometers) outside of the state capital, Raleigh.
If you're hoping for a short drive from your hotel, it'd be a good idea to make a reservation at one of the 4 nearby options in advance. Within 2 miles (3 kilometers) of Bent Creek Experimental Forest you will discover the Bent Creek Lodge Bed & Breakfast and Comfort Suites Outlet Center.
If you don't like having to choose between eating out and buying souvenirs, then free up some of your cash by booking a room at one of the surrounding area's more reasonably priced hotels. A couple of favorites are the Quality Inn & Suites Biltmore South and the Ramada Asheville Southeast.
This could be the ideal time to splurge on something really special. Treat yourself to an indulgent experience at one of the handful of upmarket establishments just a short drive away. Rooms at the Grand Bohemian Asheville, Autograph Collection and The Residences At Biltmore won't disappoint.
Just 0.6 miles (1.0 kilometer) away, Sugar & Snow Gelato (1446 Brevard Road #101, Asheville) is an excellent place for a bite on-the-go or a strong coffee while roaming around Bent Creek Experimental Forest.
