Mild-mannered Asheville is a treat all year round

Fall is one of the busiest times to visit, when the fall foliage brings a blaze of color to the city and its mountainous surrounds. For comfortable temperatures and low humidity, the best times to visit are spring and fall, when the city sees bright days and plenty of sunshine.
