It is clear to anyone who has read her blog that Kathy Rudolph Petrino has a talent for writing about her favorite travel destinations, and her motivation is her desire for everyone to enjoy the travels she’s experienced so far and the best way to deal with that is to make sure they know how to do it all. Kathy wants to see everything worth seeing, even as she helps those destinations thrive by making sure others visit and enjoy them as much as she.

One of her Kathy Rudolph Petrino’s favorites destinations wants everyone who reads her to visit the beautiful city of Asheville, North Carolina. She sees Asheville as ranking among the most innovative and eclectic small cities in the United States, with its strong arts focus. At any given time, more than 200 artists show their work in their River Arts District alone. That is known as one of the most diverse arts districts anywhere. Asheville also is highly regarded for their diverse selection of restaurants, including food produced by the award-winning chefs working their magic in the city’s restaurant district. There are also the hundreds of craft beers served up by breweries all over the city.
