Leaf Season is Almost Here!

Are you ready to come to Asheville for those sunny fall days, that crisp air, and the beautiful color?  This fall is predicted to be one of the prettiest we have seen in years!  Along with the leaves come popular events in and around Asheville.  See the menu link, “Current Events”, and scroll down to the bottom of the page to find links for “Things to Do” and “Socializing.”

Unfortunately, along with fall color comes the heaviest season of traffic in Asheville.  Is there a way to avoid gridlock?  Are there better routes than others in and around Western North Carolina?  The answer to these questions is yes and no.  Obviously if you try to come to the city on Friday afternoon/evening traffic will be heavy regardless of which route you take.  If you are flexible on dates/times try Thursday before noon or early Saturday morning.  If not, please see the map below for suggestions on how to avoid I26 and I240 gridlock:

Red means avoid!  Green means better!
