About Kristen

Kristen Manieri

Kristen Manieri is a travel and food writer with extensive travel experience in the Asheville area. As a regular contributor to Virgin Atlantic, West Jet's UP!, Dreamscapes and Forbes Travel Guide, she has published more than 200 stories over the past eight years.

Asheville makes it easy for her to be such a fan. With its bursting-at-the-seems dining scene, sprawling hotels, eclectic shops and miles of picturesque hiking trails, this small town tucked into the palm of the Blue Ridge Mountains has captured Kristen's heart and she loves nothing more than inspiring other travelers to visit.
