I've never really been a play-by-the-book kinda gal, so I wanted to offer some ideas for celebrating Spring that don't involve the standard Easter egg hunt. Plus, this weekend is gonna hit 80 degrees!!- something we haven't seen in awhile!
I'll throw in another word about the Biltmore Festival of Flowers which begins this weekend on April 3, and add again that they do offer an egg hunt and children's activities on the 4th in Easter celebration. At Carolina Mornings we do have NC vacation packages that offer FREE tickets to Biltmore!
Hickory Nut Gap Farm, one of our favorite local sources for delicious, friendly meat and eggs, is having their 10th Anniversary celebration on April 3 from 1-5pm there in Fairview. Come and share a tour with your family, see some beautiful Asheville- area back-country as well as many happy farm animals and other happy people. There are children's activities in addition to the fun of enjoying a day at the farm. Carolina Mornings does have beautiful vacation cabins in the Fairview area as well!
My favorite thing to do around here on a beautiful day is to get out in the woods!! There are so many great places to take a hike in the area and get to see NC wilderness: Bent Creek (15 min. outside of Asheville); the trails on the Blue Ridge Parkway (be sure to check ahead for closures); and Pisgah National Forest are a few of your options in this area that provide great space to get out and play.
Come and enjoy the beginnings of Spring here in Asheville, NC!! Check out what we have to offer for our SPRING SPECIALS at Carolina Mornings! And remember, we have great options for FREE FUN AND GAMES with our Mountain Discovery Pass- another great way to celebrate Spring!

The bulbs are blooming here in Asheville, NC and Easter is next weekend!! It is a beautiful time for a family retreat and we have many weekend celebrations for this special time.
First, you can find a church almost anywhere in town, and you can start with a church search
if you are looking for a particular denomination. Most any will be offering some sort of Easter celebration.
Lake Junaluska has an annual Easter 5k & 10K run and walk on April 3rd, which includes a day of egg painting and hunting, and then they offer breakfast and brunch on the 4th.
Just in time for the kick-off of the Festival of Flowers, Biltmore Estate offers a day of fun for the whole family! Easter egg hunts, pictures with the Easter Rabbit, children's music and storytelling... all takes place on Sunday, April 4. Then you parents can stop for a wine tasting or take a tour yourself! We have NC vacation packages here at Carolina Mornings that offer FREE Biltmore tickets to boot!!
Spring is in the air here in Asheville, and the weekend is supposed to be beautiful! Grab the family (don't forget Fido- we do offer pet- friendly vacation rentals!) and take a scenic drive; let Carolina Mornings set you up in a Blue Ridge Mountain rental today!!
