Asheville’s stunning mountain vistas, tasty local dining and quirky character give this southern town plenty of charm. Families with kids from toddlers to teens can embark on a magical family getaway with treetop fun, throwback video games and engaging tours to appreciate the town’s local history. Just don’t forget the ice cream.
Many of Asheville’s exhilarating outdoor adventures appeal to adults and teens. But that’s not the case at the Adventure Center of Asheville, where the staff happily accommodates kids as young as four.
With a grown-up tagging along, young daredevils explore this giant jungle gym 12- to 20-feet high in the sky, traversing swaying bridges, sidestepping tightropes and gliding along zip lines.
Adults enjoy peace of mind thanks to the smart belay system that only disengages after pint-sized adventurers return to solid ground. Not enough hair-raising fun? KidZip features nine zip lines designed for kids 4 through ten.
