Asheville, North Carolina is one of the most sought after destinations during fall foliage season. I can say this because I recently visited the area on my foliage trip!
I decided to plan my foliage trip to Asheville for many reasons, including:
- Asheville is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge mountains, a prime location for leaf peeping
- The city hosts weekly fall festivals (September-November) ranging from bonsai shows to cinema festivals
- Asheville is very pet friendly, I booked a pet friendly cabin!
- Asheville, NC offers a range of scenic drives including the blue ridge parkway, US Highway 64, Forest Heritage National Scenic Byway
- Hiking is great all around Asheville, you can visit these local mountains: Black Mountain, Town Mountain, Elk Mountain
- The Biltmore Estate is a National Historic Landmark (America’s largest home) located in Asheville
Asheville is home to a great variety of experiences that you can enjoy during the autumn weather. Here are a few things I experienced while in Asheville:
- The Biltmore Estate
- Horseback Riding
- DuPont State Forest
- Bonsai Gardens
- The Blue Ridge Parkway
At Foliage.org we conduct a range of interviews with local visitor bureaus. One resource that helped me plan my Asheville, NC foliage trip was our interview with the Asheville’s CVB.
