Even though the weather is simply too hot, some of us still like to get outside and get a bit of exercise.
The NC Arboretum has shaded trails throughout its grounds. Located right by Bent Creek, it is no surprise but this was our first visit!
When the shade isn't enough, the creek is a fantastic spot to dip your toes in. The water will still be chilly.
We live just south of Asheville so we also enjoyed how close the drive was. If you are headed toward Zen tubing or Bent Creek, it is worth the $12 parking fee to drop in!
Looking for a beautiful & green spot for your wedding backdrop? I'd say The NC Arboretum is worth a look.
