Weaverville [1] is a town in Buncombe County, North Carolina.

Get in[edit]

By plane[edit]

The Asheville Regional Airport (IATA: AVL) [2] offers jet and commuter service on US Airways, Delta Air Lines, and Continental Airlines and has direct flights from Atlanta, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Detroit, Houston, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Newark, NJ, and Orlando. It is located fifteen miles south of downtown Asheville near the town of Fletcher. Ground transportation and major rental car companies are available at the airport terminal.

Flights into Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (IATA: GSP) [3] located in Greenville, South Carolina, Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) [4] located in Charlotte, North Carolina, or McGhee Tyson Airport (TYS) [5] located in Knoxville, Tennessee, are sometimes cheaper than flying directly to Asheville. Greenville is about a 1.5 hour drive, Charlotte and Knoxville are both about 2 hour drives.

Get around[edit]

Like most of Western North Carolina, you do need a car to get to and from Weaverville. Once on Main Street, it's an easy walk to much of the shopping, restaurants, and accommodations in the area. Limited bus service to and from Asheville is also available.

Drink[edit][add listing]

Weaverville does not allow liquor by the drink, so you won't find your favorite cocktail at any of the local restaurants. A vote to build a state-run ABC (Alcoholic Beverage Commission) liquor store recently passed, and plans are for the store to open in October 2009. Liquor can be purchased in nearby Woodfin or Asheville.

Beer and wine are available for purchase at most markets, grocery stores and gas stations. The alcohol laws of North Carolina prohibit the sale of alcohol after 2AM Monday through Saturday, and from 2AM until noon on Sundays.
