We met a French Broad in Asheville.

Our next night was at a Super Walmart in Williamsburg, Kentucky

and then we made our way down to North Carolina and Wilson's Riverside RV Resort. This is a Passport America campground and very convenient to Asheville. It is right on the French Broad River.
Our view through the windshield of the French Broad River.

There we are, tucked neatly into the trees.

Two nights there gave us the time to spend a day in the beautiful city of Asheville. We took the Trolley tour which was wonderful because we got to see all the main parts of the city and get a commentary on the history of the city. We stopped in the city center and had a lunch at Mayfel's, a lovely little Louisiana style restaurant. Cat fish for Michael and shrimp burger for me, followed by coffee and beignets. Yummy!

Here are some photos from around Asheville.

The tour took us to Grove Park Inn where we got off and explored the Estes-Winn Antique Car Museum and art gallery.

Michael really enjoyed looking at the old cars. Here are a few.


  1. We enjoyed this area too, although we didn't spend as much time in Asheville. We stayed at Stony Fork Creek Campground near Candler and explored the nearby Pisgah National Forest property on foot, as well as took several drives along the section of Blue Ridge Parkway between our campground and Asheville. We'll have to follow your lead and spring for the Trolley Tour on our next visit.

  2. We know that Campground and Ashville is one of our favorite cities. Great breweries including one named French Broad.
