Kathy Petrino is a voracious world traveler who also happens to love writing about her favorite travel destinations. She truly intends to see as much of the world as possible during her lifetime and she really loves to share what she learns with others. That’s why Kathy writes enthusiastically about every voyage. She wants more people to visit those destinations so they thrive and she can continue to enjoy them. However, Kathy Petrino writes about every aspect of every trip because she wants readers to avoid the occasional pitfalls that come with frequent travel.
One of Kathy Petrino’s favorite travel destinations is the gorgeous Southern city of Asheville, North Carolina, which she feels is one of the most eclectic and artistic small cities in the United States. Asheville has managed to crawl its way into the national spotlight as a phenomenal city for artists nd the arts. Right now, Asheville features more than 200 artists showing off their work all over the city’s River Arts District, considered among the most diverse arts districts anywhere in the U.S.
Asheville is also highly regarded for the fine food in their restaurant district, an area Kathy Petrino loves. The district features far more award-winning chefs than are found in most cities of roughly the same size. The variety of food also pair nicely with the hundreds of craft beers that are served up by breweries all over the city. Kathy Petrino wants you to know there are many other things to do in Asheville, particularly around the French Broad River, which features paddle boating or kayaking experiences and the Blue Ridge Mountains, for those who may be fond of hiking and/or exploring the wilderness.
