Hendersonville & Western North Carolina Mountains Things to Do

I was looking through some pictures that my daughter took of the azaleas in the yard this spring and it reminded me that the flowers looked spectacular this year. It was chilly and warm and rainy and sunny. We had something for everyone.

As I look at what we have scheduled for June in the mountains, I feel the same way. There is definitely something for everyone. Hiking in Dupont State Forest, http://www.hikewnc.info/trailheads/pisgah/ has some great trail information about Pisgah National Forest. I used it for the first time this week when I was looking for a temperature drop. It was probably twenty degrees cooler than Charlotte and Atlanta up there. Nice.

Music on Main Street debuts on Friday at 7pm! Tuxedo Junction (1940’s swing and bebop – 1990’s music with Pink Cadillac and other favorites) is playing in the street by the Visitors Center. The Hendersonville Antique Car Club will be out there showing off their vintage and antique cars also. If you want more information about the classic car show - call 828-696-4168 or 828-388-0671.

The farmers produce is coming in also. The farms and tailgate markets are a lot of fun early on Saturdays. I found a beautiful Japanese Maple Tree for the side porch and fresh lettuce at the same tailgate market last Saturday!

Along with my slow and easy ways of spending the weekend there is an Outdoor Art Show and Sale in Laurel Park Shopping Center, 828-696-3804, The Blue Ridge Barbecue Festival with 80 cook teams at Harmon Field in Tryon NC, The Asheville Kennel Club, AKC All Breed Dog Show and the National Walking Horse Show at the WNC Agricultural Center in Fletcher.

Spend the evening at Flat Rock Playhouse (one of the top summer stock theatres in the USA) watching Chicago or Music on The Rock Concert featuring I Left My Heart in San Francisco: The Music of Tony Bennett. 828-693-0731. Or, go to Asheville Community Theatre and watch The Dixie Swim Club. 828-254-1320.

We hope we've given you yet another reason to visit the 1898 Waverly Inn in Hendersonville, NC very soon!
