North Carolina Arboretum, Asheville
For the Fourth of July I decided to spend some time at the North Carolina Arboretum. Even though it was a bit muggy and hot, I was ready for a good hike through the gardens. And as luck would have it, I arrived on a first Tuesday of the month for a half price entry fee. The arboretum is normally $14 per vehicle, but on these days it is only $7! So it was a great day for an inexpensive holiday event.
