Botanical Gardens at Asheville

Botanical Gardens at Asheville Review

Adjoining the University of North Carolina–Asheville campus, this 10-acre site has walking trails and displays of native plants, including a bog with carnivorous plants such as Venus flytraps, pitcher plants, and sundew. It's a fine place for a picnic, and not far from the busy downtown.
