Welcome to Kid Friendly Asheville, a new site devoted to kid friendly activities, places to visit, places to eat, local parks and everything in between.
Kid Friendly Asheville isn't finished. There's much more to come. With Asheville offering a fun filled kid friendly weekend full of activities I had to start sharing them with you.
I'm a parent with four kids of my own, ranging in age from an infant on up to a teenager. I know what it's like to try to find kid friendly things for the whole family to do. There is nothing worse than to have a bored child sitting around the house.
Kid Friendly Asheville is for everyone to enjoy. Whether you're a native, like me, or just passing through. This site can give you options for kid friendly things to do.
Please feel free to email me if you want to ask a question or recommend something kid friendly to do around Asheville. I enjoy sharing with you all about my wonderful town.
