Fall Color: The Blue Ridge Mountains surrounding Asheville make a premier Southeastern destination for autumn leaf watchers. The fall color season extends from late September through early November, with significant variance in elevation providing no one "peak" for viewing fall color. Visit our fall section for weekly fall color reports, photos and videos, scenic drives, visitor favorites, craft trails and fall facts.
Winter Myth: Many visitors don't realize that while the mountains surrounding Asheville stay blanketed with snow, travel in the city is easy with little or no snow on the ground. The snowfall at higher elevations is great news for area skiing, snowboarding and tubing. Check out our winter section for detailed information about local ski resorts and winter happenings.
Spring Bloom: From the early blooming of crocus and daffodils through the display of flowering rhododendron, our spring section details bloom schedules and recommended scenic drives. In addition to suggested hikes, it also includes special garden-oriented events, birding excursions and a floral photo gallery, as well as a guide to the region's most popular spring events.
Summer Splash: With natural water park swimming holes around every corner, Asheville is an ideal summer destination for cooling off and relaxing. Swoosh down a natural 60-foot waterslide, or hop in a raft for a whitewater adventure in one of the area's many rivers.
