“For me, it captures the character of the western North Carolina mountains.”
—Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump
Centering on Asheville and trekking out for sixty miles in all directions, this lighthearted, personal guide focuses on all the attractions of the region. Western North Carolina, bordering Virginia, Tennessee, and Georgia, attracts five million visitors annually.
This region offers the tourist and resident breathtaking natural beauty, charming shops, restaurants, and accommodations that range from rustic to elegant.
The authors point out that many books have been written about this area’s waterfalls, parks, biking, rafting, and camping in great detail, but Coasting the Mountains covers what they liked best about everything.
