Asheville’s compact central district is somewhat similar to a European village and is filled with delightful shops, sidewalk cafés and sophisticated restaurants. The area is home to hundreds of accomplished artisans and many display their art in storefronts scattered throughout the nearby downtown. Walk into the downtown and shop for unique gifts, art and antiques. Scores of splendid independent restaurants are available to you within a short walk from Louisa’s Porch. Do you prefer sampling craft beer? You have many, many excellent choices.
