The city of Asheville welcomed 2.76 million overnight leisure visitors in 2005, according to the Asheville Convention and Visitors Bureau. The city is within easy driving distance of Lake Lure and Lake Powhattan as well as the French Broad and Nolichucky Rivers. Visitors who feel like trying their stamina on the Appalachian Trail can get there easily from Asheville. Asheville is also home to several thriving artistic neighborhoods, such as the River Arts District. In the spring, flowers coat Western North Carolina with a rainbow of blossoms. Estimations of when various flowers are likely to be in bloom can be found on the Asheville Convention and Visitors Bureau website. Frommers named the area a must-see destination in 2007, according to the Bureau.
