I’m sure you know by now, but we absolutely love where we live!  The best part about living in such a beautiful place is that you can truly be a tourist in your own city.   This past weekend, my husband and I decided to be adventurous and try zip-lining for the first time.    He is an outdoor enthusiast and has been rock-climbing, repelling, you name it. I, on the other hand, consider myself more of a city gal and have never done anything like this.  Needless to say, I was a little scared but even more excited.    There are multiple options for zip-lining in the area but we chose Navitat.    It’s only a short drive north from downtown Asheville.  While it is a bit expensive, it’s completely worth it!  We chose the Moody Cove Adventure which is their original tour.   There is another tour called the Blue Ridge Adventure that consists of a little hiking followed by 3 very long, very fast zip lines!  We’ll definitely try that one next time.    Here is a little snapshot of our adventure.

You start off on two baby zip lines to get the hang of it…

Followed by a series of faster, higher zip lines……..

Repelling, anyone?

If you are looking for fun, adventure, thrill and all within a quick drive from home, then I highly recommend Navitat!
