Most visitors drive to Asheville via one of the many highways (including Interstate Highways 40 & 26) that pass through town. Asheville is located in southwestern North Carolina, a two hours drive from Charlotte and a three hours drive from Atlanta. (See the Asheville area map above.)

If you wish to fly into Asheville, our regional airport is serviced by several major airlines. See our Guide to the Asheville Airport.

What weather should you expect in Asheville? Asheville sits in a valley at about 2,200 feet, surrounded by mountain peaks of more than 6,000 feet. This makes the weather interesting, and sometimes hard to predict. Always bring a jacket and rain gear if you plan to spend a lot of time outside. Temperatures usually run 10 to 25 degrees cooler in the higher elevations than in the city.

Spring: Bright sunny skies (with some rainy days) and crisp temperatures with highs in the 60s to 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s. This is the best time to see wildflowers.

Summer: The temperature and humidity rises with many sunny days with scattered afternoon thunderstorms. Highs in the 80s, with a few summer days above 90 in the valleys and city of Asheville. The nights cool into the 60s. At elevations of 5,000+ feet, temperatures seldom go above 80. Top 10 Ways to Beat the Heat

Fall: The spectacular color foliage show begins in early October in the higher elevations and concludes in Asheville by early November. High temperatures are in the 70s, cooling to the 60s by early November.

Winter: Asheville is protected by the surrounding mountains, so we seldom have a major snowfall. Highs usually run in the 40s and 50s. January, February, and March are great months to visit since these are the slowest months for visitors coming to our area.
