THE HOUND – Asheville 2-day Tour

Difficulty Rating: easy to moderate

Come join us for an amazing weekend with your best friend and a bunch of like-minded dog lovers! From hiking Chimney Rock and the Blue Ridge Mountains to beer or wine tasting, eating out at gourmet dog-friendly restaurants, checking out great shops & historic buildings, or paddling on the French Broad River, you will get to relax, explore, and live the life we all dream about!! Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, historic Asheville is ranked the 2nd most pet-friendly town in the USA. It reminds me of Boulder, in the 80’s, where my anthropology professor used to play fetch with her Golden Retriever during class. This eclectic growing city has no shortage of fantastic dog-friendly experiences and is known for its great climate, incredible outdoor adventures (hiking, rafting, fishing, biking, etc.), fine dining, wineries, breweries and friendly people.
