Things To Do In Asheville With Kids

Thanks to our friends at Crazy Family Adventure!

They recently included the Adventure Center of Asheville in a great post about some of WNC's best family friendly activities and we are honored to be near the top of the list!

Visit their website at http://www.crazyfamilyadventure.com/things-to-do-in-asheville-with-kids/ or read our exceprt below...

We fell in love with Asheville the minute we pulled in! Maybe it had to do with the walking/biking path that ran through the middle of our campground or the river flowing right behind our site, but the vibe made us want to be outside exploring. We definitely took advantage of the beautiful landscape and tried some really fun and unique adventures. Check them out!

New charging station highlights Local Flavor AVL app

on Tuesday, 03 February 2015. Posted in Adventure Center of Asheville News

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED AT:
http://www.citizen-times.com/story/money/business/2015/02/01/new-charging-station-highlights-local-flavor-avl-app/22705553/

ASHEVILLE – Delayed, bored and waiting for her flight to Fort Lauderdale last summer, Flori Pate could not stop looking at the empty, dark beige space inside Asheville Regional Airport.

It had potential, she said, and it was a prime location for visitors and tourists. A few months later, it became available as an advertising space for the Local Flavor AVL app.

For Flori Pate, who was a part of the trio that created the app — designed to give people an insider's view to a true Asheville experience — normal straight-forward marketing would not do.

Team Building Abounds at The Adventure Center of Asheville

on Thursday, 11 September 2014. Posted in Asheville Outdoor Activities

The Adventure Center of Asheville offers numerous opportunities for a wide range of team building experiences. From our Treetops Park, designed to provide a fun and competitive experience, to our ground programs, designed to instill confidence, cooperation, communication, and connection between group members, we offer numerous options to meet your group’s needs.

The Asheville Treetops Adventure Park Difference

Traditional high ropes courses have been recognized as a successful tool for adults and youth working on personal development, support for others, and self confidence in stressful situations. These challenges, when accompanied by conversation, evaluation, and reflection, have the power to improve group community and communication. The down side to these facilities is the limited number of participants able to access the challenges at one time and the risks of accidental exposure to falls with unmanaged clipping systems.

We have eliminated these issues by taking access and safety limitations away from the challenge at our Asheville Treetops Adventure Park with our investment in state-of-the-art clipping systems and construction of the largest adventure park challenge course in North Carolina. With over 60 challenge elements on 5 unique trails with varying levels of difficulty, guests are encouraged to expand their personal comfort zones, increase their self confidence, and support others challenged to do the same.

Our programs

Our team building programs are custom planned to reflect your goals, level of challenge and the time you are available. They are led by a trained facilitator and include initiatives such as:

  • learning effective team communication
  • expanding your comfort zone
  • supporting and planning with others in the team
  • positive relationship development
  • enhancing cooperation and trust
  • inspiring positive changes
  • improving problem solving skills

Our programs can include:

  • facilitated programs on the ground
  • access to one or many of the activities at our Center
  • additional competitive challenges that are set up at each activity


Our team building programs have been popular with corporate groups, students, teachers, athletic teams, boards, and associations. Prices vary depending upon activities planned, event schedule, group size, and support required.
