Asheville Performances Feb-Mar

Going to the theater to see a stage production is one of my favorite things to do. Luckily Asheville is known for some great performances, especially for a city of its size. Below is a small sampling of February and March events.

Each title is linked to the show and venue's web site - click to read more about the performance and to see what else the venue is offering!

I'm sure many people are feeling the economy crunch as 2008 gets going (I know I am). But that doesn't mean we're willing to sacrifice our vacation! Especially for those nearby, Asheville can be a great destination for a really fun and affordable trip - even if just for a weekend. Cooking in a vacation home also saves a lot of money, rather than staying in an expensive hotel and having to eat out every meal.

However, it is worth spending a little extra cash to check out one of the many fantastic restaurants in Asheville... a list of the best is coming soon!
