Fall in Love on your Asheville Vacation

There’s no better time to take an Asheville vacation than in the fall. The brisk weather causes trees to flaunt vibrant hues of red, orange, and yellow. Due to its colder climate and various elevations, Asheville stands to offer one of the longest and most beautiful fall colors in the country. Experience Asheville’s enchantment yourself when staying in one of Yonder Luxury Vacation Rentals. You’ll find an abundance of fall fun to put a smile on everyone’s face. 

Scenic Drives

Asheville’s scenic fall drives are second to none. One of the best areas to explore is the Blue Ridge Parkway, which offers some of the highest peaks in the eastern U.S. The variety in elevation offers many different scenic overlooks. If you’re planning your Asheville vacation in the early fall months, retreat up higher elevations for the best views. In late fall, you’ll find that the best views are seen from lower elevations. Another beautiful fall drive is taking US 276 through the Pisgah National Forest. When following this route, you’ll see thundering roadside Looking Glass Falls, and NC 215. 

Fall Foliage Hikes

Hiking through Asheville mountains is always enjoyable, but nothing can compare to the mountain’s natural beauty in the fall. They say don’t go chasing waterfalls, but here in Asheville, we do! The Crabtree Falls in Blue Ridge Parkway, Looking Glass Falls near US 276, and Rainbow Falls in Gorges State Park are truly breathtaking. The waterfalls appear to bounce with fall colors when they rush down against the leaf-strewn terrain. You cannot go home without catching these views! 

Day Trips

Asheville is located near many other state and national parks. Pack your car and spend a day exploring Grandfather Mountain; one of the highest peaks in the Blue Ridge Mountains. You can nearly drive to the summit and check out the Mile High Swinging Bridge. Or if visiting the Great Smoky Mountains National Park sounds more appealing, Asheville is only an hour away!  One of the park’s most beautiful places in the fall is Cataloochee Valley. The valley’s rugged mountains lend themselves to have peaceful valleys. Sometimes you can get lucky and spot an elk.
