Pack Square on Sunday

Sunday morning is a great time to stroll around Pack Square in Asheville, North Carolina.




There are bronze sculptures and fountains throughout the park in the midst of 1920's 'skyscrapers' and huge gargoyles jutting out from the top of the Jackson Building.




Another view of the Jackson Building. 
Read more about the wonderful Asheville architecture here.




During the Great Depression, so many despondent people jumped from the top of this building, a target was installed in the sidewalk. 
 



The corporate office for Biltmore is located here in the square.





One of the bronzes along the way. 
This one is dedicated to childhood.



As the public space of Pack Square ends, there is a huge fountain that always has many people gathered around sitting in the sun or playing with their children in the water in warm weather.

 


After our walk we had a wonderful brunch at one of our favorite Pack Square restaurants. Posana Café also has sidewalk dining but we ate at our usual window table inside so that we could watch the passers by who often smiled at us. 
 




The dress I wore today is by Chaps and the sunglasses are Vera Wang both from Kohl's. The sandals are by Kenneth Cole Reaction via T.J.Maxx.

Thank you for reading about our weekend getaway for Mr. Mickey's birthday. We love sharing our adventures with you and we hope you can also get away for a fun weekend soon.

Lovely photos of a special NC city. Your post gives me a great idea for a surprise trip for Mr. Wonderful.
You look stunning in the photos, too. The dress is very flattering.
Hugs!

You are looking pretty in this blue dress and comfortable sandal. Knit, washable dresses are just the best for summer.

I am a newby to your website but am really enjoying it. My husband is from North carolina so particularly enjoyed the pictures and comments on Ashville. A year or so ago, Ashville, North Carolina was voted the most livable city in America.

Another pretty dress! I can see that one dressed up or down. My oldest daughter travels quite a lot and she loves dresses for ease of wardrobe planning. Thanks for sharing pictures with us.
