Best Time To Visit Asheville

Thanks to Asheville’s elevation (2,200 feet), the city is typically 10 degrees cooler than neighbouring cities. Winters can be freezing in Asheville but spring is your best bet for seeing the quieter side here. The temperatures remain pleasant and the mountains come alive with budding trees and wildflowers. Fall is also a good time to visit, particularly late September to early November. This time guarantees brisk, invigorating weather, and beautiful fall leaf color.

  • Summers: Summer is peak tourist season in Asheville, and weekends are packed with folks from Charlotte and Atlanta looking to capture a bit of the town’s “weird” vibe while escaping the heat. 
  • Fall: Fall is almost as popular as summer, thanks to the hardwoods covering the mountains surrounding Asheville. Temperatures rarely top the 70s and won’t trend much higher than the 60s when peak foliage hits in mid-October. Expect the inns to be full and the scenic roads to be crowded. The Blue Ridge Parkway, which runs from the edge of town up to the High Country, is the most popular foliage-viewing spot.
  • Winters: The city essentially takes winter off, so you’ll find the best deals at hotels and the shortest lines at restaurants. But the temperatures are often below freezing and snow is common.
