Enter to win a free trip to Asheville from Lonely Planet.
This year, Lonely Planet named Asheville, North Carolina the best place destination to visit in 2017. (That’s what my enthusiastic friend Marilynne says, too. She moved there several years ago.) Although it’s on “our list,” we’ve never gotten there yet. Would it be appealing to win a trip for two to this great city? You bet!
Lonely Planet has partnered with Explore Asheville (the city’s official tourism bureau) and the Biltmore, George Vanderbilt’s 8000-acre estate for a lucky winner and their guest to visit what it calls “one of the USA’s most artistic, eclectic and innovative small cities.
The prize includes:
1) A $2500 travel voucher
2) A 3-night Discover Biltmore Package stay at Village Hotel on Biltmore Estate
3) VIP seats for a short at The Orange Peel, Asheville’s renowned concert venue, and
4) Tickets for a number of tours including one that is farm-to-table.
How to enter
You simply need to fill out a brief form explaining why you would like to visit in 25 words or less. You can find the form here.

N.B. While this and other sweepstakes entries may seem like a long shot, my friend Diana was stunned when she recently won two fabulous trips by entering online travel contests.
