Memorial Day in Asheville, NC
If you will be in Asheville, NC for Memorial Day, you will find lots of celebrations and fun. You may want to head for the Asheville Outdoor Center/Southern Waterways because temperatures will be very warm. Located on the Biltmore property, you will find facilities for canoe rides, kayaking, rafts, and even a tube river ride. For a breathtaking view of the Blue Ridge and Smokey Mountains, you could go a hot air balloon ride at Asheville Hot Air Balloons.
