For more than two centuries, Pack Square has marked the center of downtown. As Asheville has grown from a small country town to a metropolitan area, Vance Monument and the fountain on Pack Square have remained icons of the bustling city. Visit the art museum, sit and enjoy a mocha latte, have dinner at an outdoor café and people-watch as visitors and residents alike are drawn to the sounds of live music drifting from surrounding restaurants and clubs. The city's Renaissance Plan for the square assures a promising future.
If you hate being around crowds then this is the place for you. This ain't no Miami. But I thought it was paradise because it was much more peaceful and controlled. There isn't that much to do in Pack Square as I thought because every shop / restaurant was an unknown. I guess you can say that I'm not THAT adventurous! But otherwise, it was quite calm. I didn't feel like I had to look over my shoulder all the time, like you should in downtown areas. Just go with the right people because you can easily get bored here.
