Travel Photos - Beautiful Architecture + Shopping at Asheville's Grove Arcade

The Grove Arcade is a beautiful shopping center in downtown Asheville, North Carolina. The building was built as a public market to help enliven the downtown area of Asheville. The idea for the market was the brainchild of self-made millionaire E.W. Grove who wanted the building to be 'the most elegant building in America'.

It is generally conceded that the Arcade Building would do justice to a city many times the size of Asheville. It is by far the finest structure in the South and there are few, if any, finer in the entire country.” — E.W. Grove, 1927

We enjoyed getting out of the cold to walk around inside the beautiful space, shop, and admire the architecture.

Afterward, we enjoyed lunch at White Duck Taco Shop before heading to The Biltmore to check out their elaborate Christmas decorations.

Here are a few of my favorite photographs from Asheville and the Grove Arcade.
