ASHEVILLE NC-   WED MAR 26 2025-SUN MAR 30 2025


We have reserved the entire 48 room Haywood Park Hotel in downtown Asheville, NC, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We will visit the Biltmore House, the largest private residence in the United States (of course built by a Vanderbilt!!) and worth the trip alone, the home of author Thomas Wolfe, and take some simple hikes in the beauty of the mountains and surrounding area. Asheville is becoming an arts center of some distinction, and also a food destination, so we will have many great choices for gallery viewing and dinners. We will also have Ed Strauss’s wife Anne helping out as we put together the itinerary. Her family has had a presence in Asheville for many years, and her local knowledge will be invaluable. We also have some classmates who live in the area who will help in the planning process.  The cost will be in the $4000/couple range.
