Leaf Watch 101

Asheville’s elevation and the wide variety of tree species means that fall foliage here in the mountains is a sight to behold! Explore Asheville has all the information on the best ways to get out in nature and even how to track the changing leaves as you plan your trip.

Where To Eat

When you come to Asheville, you’ll want to come hungry: the city’s culinary options are not to be missed. There is a lot to choose from, so here are some of our top recommendations for dining in Asheville.

For those wanting an adult spin on apple cider (a classic fall beverage), check out Asheville’s Noble Cider and Urban Orchard Cider Co., and Black Mountain’s Ciderworks and Meadery, for delicious hard cider. Noble Cider recently opened The Greenhouse downtown, a bar and bistro serving specialty cider cocktails and plates for sharing.

What To Do

When the weather is nice, take a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway to admire the changing leaves, visit Riverside Cemetery (a short walk from the Black Walnut!) in Asheville’s Historic Montford neighborhood, or  or spend a day enjoying the splendor of the Biltmore Estate. Guests staying at the  Black Walnut can purchase Biltmore tickets through us: these tickets are good for two consecutive days, giving you more time to enjoy Biltmore’s gardens, grounds, and winery! If  you’re caught in the rain, visit The Grove Arcade for Art Deco architecture and shopping, Grail Moviehouse or the Fine Arts Theatre to catch a movie, or check out the newly re-designed Asheville Art Museum.
