Things To Do
Sun and Moon Market at Pleb
Clydescope Creations will be vending at Pleb Urban Winery from 1 - 5 pm for the Sun & Moon Market! The market will be outside with nicely spaced vendors so you can enjoy the beautiful hand-wrapped jewelry and more. Grab a can of wine while you browse but be sure to bring a mask and keep your distance!
Singer-guitarist Marcel Anton is a rare artist with the panache and virtuosity to convincingly pay tribute to heavyweights Jimi Hendrix and Prince on the same show. Join White Horse Black Mountain for this amazing live show that you can enjoy at home OR in-person! If you're like us, you are itching to get back to a sense of normalcy and live music is definitely something we've missed. Be sure to mask up!
The hike to Looking Glass Rock is a moderate to strenuous trail at 6.1 miles with a rewarding view from the top that makes the hike worth it! This trail features a beautiful summit view and is located right outside of Asheville in Pisgah Forest! Join Hike NC with Me in experiencing our weekly 360 degree hike. Check out the 360 Video Here
