Travel And Leisure Picked This Town For Best North Carolina Winter Travel
I strongly believe most people’s preferences fall into two categories, beach or mountains. And, to help plan your getaways this season Travel + Leisure says North Carolina winter travel needs to include this particular town. The travel publication recently came out with their ’13 Best Places To Go In Winter’ list. And, there’s something for sun and fun lovers and for those who want a white Christmas.
So, have you guessed which town they suggested as best for North Carolina winter travel? I’ll end the suspense. It’s none other than Asheville, North Carolina. And, among the 13 on the list Asheville landed at the number 12 spot. Hey, it’s a no-brainer. I’m a mountain person myself. And, North Carolina has some of the most beautiful winter scenery and mountain landscapes any time of year.
Plus, Asheville is straight out of a Hallmark movie, literally. There’s a reason Hollywood comes calling on Asheville when it’s time to film picturesque scenes for the big screen. Asheville has everything you want. I love that you get just enough of a dose of ‘wintery’ weather without it being too harsh. And, for those who love to be outdoors or take to the slopes you find that in and around Asheville, too.
But, my absolute favorite part of Asheville this time of year is the famous Biltmore Estate. Over the years, I visited multiple times. And, it never fails to take my breath away. The Candlelight Christmas event is one of my most treasured memories with my family. It’s like being transported to another time. I heard it put best once that during a regular day trip the house looks like a beautiful museum. However, during candlelight Christmas visits, you really feel that it once was a ‘home’ for a family who celebrated holidays at the massive estate.
So, it’s not surprising Travel + Leisure included Asheville as one of the best places to go for North Carolina winter travel. See their article for the full list, and start planning your getaway.
