There are tons of options when it comes to exploring Asheville with kids, so we chose activities first that we knew our kids would love knowing that we could come back frequently and explore it all over time. Our first stop was at The Adventure Center of Asheville, located only five minutes from downtown. This adventure park’s offerings felt like the sky was the limit, and we started with KidZip, a children’s zip lining park.
In Asheville, we have a myriad of options to offer groups of all sizes. With our many lovely hotels, resorts and meeting spaces, Asheville is a meeting planners dream! And once your group has toured the Biltmore Estate, had a sunset dinner and maybe enjoyed our historic downtown, you may be looking for some unique group experiences.

Then, as the sun starts to set, the challenges become illuminated with over 15,000 colored twinkle and laser lights. Five of the Adventure Park’s aerial trails become illuminated with all their leaves, cables, ropes and platforms.

We've got a recreational tree-climbing experience to share with our Guests. TreeQuest climbers can use specialized gear and techniques to climb on one of our stately oak trees using a rope without negatively affecting the tree.
Climbers “inch worm” their way up one of our eight climbs that range in height. TreeQuest allows Guests to enjoy an adventure activity in a controlled situation so that they can focus on the thrill of the activity and experience the environment they are in.
