A Walk in the Grove Arcade Neighborhood

The Grove Arcade in Downtown Asheville offers a whole neighborhood of restaurants, shopping and beautiful architecture.

The Grove Arcade in Downtown Asheville

Parking is plentiful in the area and includes a parking garage as well as a good supply of spaces on street level. On the day we visited, there was a bustling outdoor market selling clothing and local crafts.

This artisan’s booth features beautiful turned wood bowls crafted from local woods.

There is always something interesting happening in the Grove Arcade. Check out this yarn artist, who was dressing up everything in his location, including the famous iron sculpture on the corner of Wall Street and Battery Park.

The Grove Park area is a great place to start your exploration of downtown Asheville. Stop in to Chai Pani for some great Indian street food, or Carmel’s Kitchen and Bar for some outdoor eats and people watching. Just down the road you will find Haywood Street and Woolworth Walk.

The Woolworth Walk is a great source for local arts and crafts.

Wondering where the bells are? The beautiful Basilica of Saint Lawrence is just north of the Grove Arcade, and the bell tower there chimes every fifteen minutes.

The US Cellular Center is also in the Grove Arcade area. The Thomas Wolfe Auditorium and the larger Cellular Center venues are both located here.

Dancing sculptures greet you at the entrance to the Cellular Center and Thomas Wolfe Auditorium.

We hope you take some time to explore the Grove Arcade. There are too many attractions to list here, but some of the highlights include the Asheville Pinball Museum, the Mountain Made Art Gallery, the Fresh Quarter grocery and Enter the Earth fossil shop.
