We will begin our trip to Asheville, NC, for lunch at a Grand Mountain Resort, The Grove Park Inn. The Grove Park Inn was opened on July 12, 1913, and has had thousands of visitors, including Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Will Rogers. The Grove Park Inn has two of the most famous fireplaces in the world. After a delicious meal we will have time to explore the Inn and grounds, as well as admire all the Gingerbread Houses that are part of the 31st annual National Gingerbread Competition. There are four age categories competing: Children 5-8, Youth 9-12, Teen 13-17, and Adult 18+. We can’t wait to see this year’s creations! Arriving back approximately 6:00 PM. (L)
