Fourth of July weekend

July 4th in Western North Carolina. Several towns in WNC have fireworks and other festivities.

My personal favorite is downtown Weaverville, which, while still crowded, is more quaint and more easily manageable than fireworks in downtown Asheville. The audience also tends to be a little more quiet and contained. You can also watch fireworks and enjoy festivities at Lake Louise in Weaverville.

Brevard will be having their 36th annual Fine Arts and Crafts Showcase, which coincides with the Classic Car Show, and of course, fireworks.

Morganton will be holding their annual Red, White and Bluegrass Festival (July 1-4).

And, of course, downtown Asheville will have the annual Ingles Fourth of July Celebration, with live music, arts and crafts, old fashioned games, and inflatable rides for the kids.

Special nightly minimum
FYI for those interested in spending Independence Day in Asheville (or those in Asheville who just want a little getaway...)

Carolina Mornings now has a 2 night minimum for the 4th of July weekend!

This means that those who are lucky enough to have the 4th of July off from work can now stay Friday to Sunday, without having to take an extra vacation day. We still have about 20 properties left (the one pictured is Slow Living Cottage), but we're trying hard to book them up as quickly as possible... so don't wait too long :)

Check them all out at www.carolinamornings.com, but to find out everything available for the 2 night minimum, and to book the special nightly minimum, you'll have to call a vacation specialist at 828.398.0712/800.770.9055.
