With the holidays upon us, don’t forget the many holiday events going on around the area. You will find live music, fun, family festivals, the arts, and enough restaurants to intrigue every foodie.
The Biltmore has some holiday events, during the daytime or evening. The special events at the Biltmore include Christmas decorations (with 55 decorated trees), festive meals at the many restaurants, and holiday wine for your tasting.
Boyd Mtn Tree Farm is very festive, full of fraser firs. You can cut one yourself or have them cut it for you. Enjoy hot drinks and snacks in their big, warm tent, surrounded by every kind of wreath you could ever imagine. Santa makes an appearance for believers (kids and adults). Check the schedule for Santa visits. Just remember, the last day they will be open will be Dec 2.
