3 Fun Fall Activities for Your Trip to Asheville, NC

September 20, 2022

Fall is settling across the Blue Ridge Mountains and once again, travelers from all over are beginning to make their way to Asheville and the local bed and breakfasts. Though every season is a great time to visit Western North Carolina, Autumn in Asheville is a truly special experience. That’s why the city fills up and overflows in a hive of buzz and activity. 

In the next few weeks, every hiking trail and waterfall in the Asheville area will be hitting peak levels of jaw-dropping beauty. Locals will be celebrating fall harvests and the changing season. The air will be filled with the smell of apple and pumpkin spices. People will gather around campfires and share in that curious sense of magic and mysticism that is one of the unique hallmarks of this time of year.

This year, we put together a list of 3 fun activities to help everyone make the most of fall in Asheville

Get Festive

One of the best ways to experience any season in any region is by attending regional festivals. Here is a list of several upcoming festivals taking place in or near Asheville in Fall 2022:

Get Spooky!

Spook-inspired shivers are just as much a part of the season as the Autumn chill. Asheville has a long and curious history that calls out to lovers of all things supernatural. There are even a couple of inns, like Pinecrest Bed and Breakfast and The Reynolds Mansion, that have histories of paranormal activity.

There are plenty of haunted spots hidden around the city, like Helen’s Bridge and Riverside Cemetery. True lovers of the haunted and mysterious can join one of Haunted Asheville’s ghost tours, or hop on a LaZoom bus for the ghost comedy tour.

Get Outside!

It goes without saying, but everyone - local and tourist alike - will soon be flocking to the hiking trails and overlooks. Instead of joining the throng - immerse in nature with alternative experiences.

The Best Places to Stay

It can be difficult to know which experiences to prioritize, but as ever, innkeepers have all the tips. Some, like Chestnut Street Inn and Bent Creek Lodge have even posted their tips directly on their websites. Get the innkeeper’s insight before you even arrive.

If you’re making your way to Asheville this Autumn, get ready to experience the season in all its glory. Put your comfort and convenience in the hands of one of Asheville’s innkeepers. Book your stay at an Asheville Bed and Breakfast for the local scoop on where to eat and what to do.
