On this weekend we were scheduled to do Atlanta. We were going to make the video theme around Martin Luther King Jr, filming Ebenezer Baptist Church. Then George Floyed happened the Monday before, and 24 hours before we were to leave there was riots in downtown Atlanta, so made a quick decision to change to Asheville. As a result we had no Prep on Asheville, but still was able to film a decent video. We were able to contract with a helicopter company out of Virginia to be able to get good footage of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Asheville, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, is a gateway city for adventure. Below are the addresses and links of what to do in Asheville, the places we feature in this video.

MARSHALL, NC (12:11) Asheville is not only popular for its nature, but also its Art, music, architecture, and Beer., It is big enough to have good services & entertainment, yet it still has a small town atmosphere with under 100,000 in population. While we are going to focus largely on the tourist activities, what to do in Asheville, we are also going to show a couple of communities if you are interested in moving to the area. Asheville is popular for retirees, but now the dominant group moving in are 20-34 year old Millennials and young families. With UNC Asheville & Western Carolina University, as well as an area conducive to the active lifestyle it is popular for College Aged people. Asheville City Limits has seen its growth slow alittle bit in the last couple of years, but the 4 county area around it has seen a healthy growth, especially Waynesville & Maggie Valley where you can get more home for the money, yet still 20-30 minutes from Asheville. Now if you have the big bucks you move to Biltmore More Forest, wow. How would you like to live there. Oh and theres a Tropical Smoothie in Asheville, a plus for any city. So no matter what your reason is for coming to Asheville, maye to visit, to live, to hear some music, and maybe just to drink Beer, I think you will enjoy our Journey
