As Asheville is widely known for its limitless outdoor activities, it can seem kind of tricky to make those rainy day plans. We've created a guide to help keep your rainy day full of exciting indoor activities that will get your whole family on board.
Arcades, Board Games, and More!
Who doesn’t love a fun day filled with board and arcade games? For board games and coffee with a few of your friends, head on over to Well Played Board Game Cafe. With 603 board games, you’re sure to find something that fits your gaming taste! Be sure to get a local draft beer and try their “Game Break” appetizer- an adult take on Lunchables.
For a more game-tech filled day, head over to Asheville’s Fun Depot and Play Station Asheville! They both have indoor arcades and exciting attractions such as bumper cars! If you’re feeling a little old school, the Asheville Retrocade is the place to be. They offer games dating back to the 1930s, so get ready for a blast from the past! Play unlimited games for only 10 bucks while enjoying a variety of craft brews.
Looking For Something A Little More Relaxing?
If you’re already using the rainy day as a way to destress your week, consider doing a relaxing yoga session or maybe even spend some time at a local spa. Detox at one of our two Salt Spas including Asheville Salt Cave and The Salt Spa of Asheville, or soak in a sensory deprivation tank at Stillpoint Wellness. If you’re looking for a way to relocate your focus, head on over to Fired Up or Claying Around for relaxing pottery painting and more!
Still Wanting To Be Active On A Rainy Day…?
Look no further. RAD Skatepark is the only indoor skatepark in Western North Carolina, offering a high quality facility dedicated to the local skateboarding community. From lessons with a professional skateboarder and more, you won’t want to miss the thrill.
If you’re wanting to be just a little less active than that, try out Sky Lanes bowling! This is a fun, inexpensive way to keep the whole family engaged and out of the rainy day blues. Try their famous “Big Lebowski” Hand-patted burger topped with cheese, bacon, fried pickles, lettuce, tomato & onion. On the weekends there is also Cosmic Bowling and karaoke.
Maybe Just Wanting To Kick Back And Watch A Movie?
Check out Grail Moviehouse located in Downtown Asheville for comfy seating, great beer, and friendly staff! They show a variety of films such as indie movies, documentaries, local movies and even have special showings.
Also, make sure to stop by Orbit DVD for a HUGE collection of movies! They also carry a large variety of comics and games as well if you're in the mood for a movie and more!
