Asheville nestles between two major mountain ranges in the scenic western section of North Carolina.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Grovewood Village and Basilica of Saint Lawrence. Head to Paul Murray Gallery and Smoky Mountain Knife Worksfor some retail therapy. Change things up with these side-trips from Asheville: Wheels Through Time Transportation Museum (in Maggie Valley), Dry Falls (in Highlands) and Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine (in Pigeon Forge). There's much more to do: admire the majestic nature at Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Clingmans Dome, ride a horse along Moses H. Cone Memorial Park, and appreciate the history behind Veterans' Monument.

To find traveler tips, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, read Asheville visit planner.

In November, plan for daily highs up to 59°F, and evening lows to 36°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
