: Well, originally my father and I had planned to head over to Scotland for Christmas (this being the first holiday after mom's passing and REALLY not wanting to be here at home, as you can imagine...) but exorbitant fares being asked us by the airlines, we were left bereft of ideas. And then yours truly thought...where would SHE like to be on Christmas morning? Hmmm...what could be better than MOUNTAINS?? So guess where we're going? ASHEVILLE. With jaunts to the surrounding countryside. Tried to book a place at the Grove Park (is that the correct name...sorry...caffeine deficit...) but ended up at the Renaissance (???) Does anyone know about this hotel? And anyone have any suggestions of what to check out, besides the obvious? I'm hoping to check out some live music and do some shopping. Any suggestions would be mucho appreciated.

Dear Bell-Bedecked Christina,
Congratulations, My Friend!! You will be living out a fantasy of mine, fer shure! Oh, to be spending Christmas in the mountains!! (Though I admit, Scotland would have been lovely, too!!) I hope you have a wonderful time, and will send you some URLs later from a magazine that might give you some fun ideas. Check online for the Chamber of Commerce for the Asheville area, too. I'll bet there are places around there that really do it up right!
You'll have so much fun!
