Asheville is a place for adults to do Spring Break

ForbesTraveler.com has named Asheville, the "Paris of the South," one of the best places for adults to have a great time "without the rowdy kids."

"You’ve worked much too hard to have your spring break ruined by a bunch of kids who aren't your own," says Forbes. "The thousands of spring breakers and their teen dramas, drunkfests and wet t-shirt contests fly south for the winter right when you are getting sick of the sleet and snow."

Instead, try Asheville "with an eclectic downtown and 30-plus art galleries all framed by the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. Renowned accommodations include the Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa and the Cottage on Biltmore Estate (that’s George Vanderbilt’s 8,000-acre place and site of America’s largest home). Richmond Hill Inn also has an elegant, B&B-inspired ambience. March’s variable weather could bring either snow tubing downhill or rafting on the French Broad River."

Note: Richmond Hill Inn was recently the victim of arson and is now lost.

And if these adults want to dabble in illicit drugs, well, A-ville's a good place for that too.

Wow. I didn't know about Richmond Hill Inn. How sad. :-( It was such a beautiful place.
