THE EXPLORE ASHEVILLE PR TEAM IS COLLECTING NEWS & LOCAL STORIES

The Explore Asheville team is continually working to share local stories with media outlets both regionally and nationally and create content that brings Asheville experiences to life for consumers.

Travelers in 2021 are craving renewal, stress-relief, self care and healing experiences, so Explore Asheville is putting an emphasis on WELLNESS this spring. We use that term very broadly and are hoping to collect ideas and news on the many ways wellness intersects across Asheville culture — art, food and beverage, music, outdoors, retail, makers, history, lodging, visitor experiences, etc.

Regardless of whether you have an overt wellness tie-in, feel free to share what is relevant and useful for your business right now, in whatever capacity you have to do that.
