Arts/Theater

Funny thing about the Blue Ridge Mountains. Even when you perch on a lofty peak or hike a wooded trail, you’re never far from rollicking musical theater, soaring orchestral strains and très chic art galleries. From the lively Asheville arts scene to a glassworker’s quaint studio, art and nature dance a lively jig in the Blue Ridge.
