We always get the question; where is your favorite place you’ve traveled recently? Currently, one of our favorite places we’ve traveled this year has to be Asheville, North Carolina. If Portland and Nashville would have made a kid, it might be Asheville. With beautiful mountain scenery, Asheville has it all: one of the first and best beer cultures, a booming food haven and a thriving music scene. Pretty much all the boxes we like to check in any city!

This Podcast Episode:

Join us for this special travel episode of Millennial Money, as we explore the other music city. Showing us around their city of Asheville are three locals and new friends of the podcast.

We have Graham Sharpe of the band Steep Canyon Rangers, who are currently opening for Steve Martin and Martin Short’s national tour talks about the eclectic music scene and what draws people to Asheville these days.

Caroline Roy, the owner of Asheville hot spot Biscuit Head, chats about why Asheville is “the” town to visit and start a business in.

To wrap up our tour of Asheville, Chef Mike Moore of Aux Bar gives us some insight into the booming food scene and some tips on where to find some underground music.

My co-host for the podcast is my husband, Jeff Game, a travel, and music journalist that’s always on the hunt for a good story to tell.
