The beginning of Asheville is somewhat shrouded in mystery, as Native American populations called it home for over 1,000 years. Since that time, it's been inhabited by Spanish, French, and English explorers. It wasn't until 1784 that a permanent settlement began near the mouth of Bee Tree Creek. After the Civil War, Asheville developed rapidly, and it still contains many historical homes, including the Biltmore Estate, which is the largest private residence in the United States.

Today, Asheville is one of the most visited and recognized tourist destinations in North Carolina, thanks to a bevy of awards bestowed upon the city. Some of these titles include "The Hippie Capital of the South, one of the "Nine Most Romantic Cities in the South, one of "America's Best Beer Cities," and one of the "Top 25 Small Cities for Art." Regardless of the reason for your visit, you'll want to find the hotel that puts you close to the action.

When to Visit Asheville, NC

Depending on what you want to do, there are many ideal times to visit Asheville. During the summer months, the city can get hot during the day, but the mornings and evenings are mild. One of the best parts of visiting during the summer is that there are tons of music, art, and food festivals. This time of year is one of the hardest times to find a hotel, mainly because there's so much going on in Asheville. Therefore, it's important to grab up a hotel room early to ensure you get the hotel of your choice.

In the early spring, the climate is much milder, yet there's a moderate likelihood of snow due to the elevation. By April and May, the chance of snow becomes almost non-existent as the temperatures warm. If you want to explore the city in relative peace, this is the perfect time of year to head out on your adventure.

The onset of fall begins in mid-September. This is perhaps the most glorious time of the year in Asheville. During this time, the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains change colors, sporting red, yellow, auburn, and virtually every other fall hue you can dream about. This is also the time of year that has the least chance of rain, meaning any stroll through town or excursion in the mountains has little chance of being interrupted by a downpour.

If you're into winter sports such as skiing or snowboarding, then it's imperative that you visit Asheville between December and March. At this time of the year, the Blue Ridge Mountains provide ample ski resorts for all budgets and all skill levels. If you plan on going to the area around the Christmas holiday, make certain that you book a hotel or vacation resort well in advance. Sometimes, you may get a steal on a hotel room and ski pass and avoid crowds by going to Asheville in March, as up to a foot of snow has been known to fall late in the season

Top Asheville, North Carolina Destinations

The premier place to visit in Asheville is the legendary Biltmore Estate. Located on an 8,000-acre plot of land, the Biltmore Estate was finished in 1895 with a whopping 179,000 square feet of space. The estate is now open to the public, and it will give you an indication of just how much money the Vanderbilt family made during the Industrial Revolution.

Due to its massive size, the Biltmore Estate is an exhausting daylong trek, meaning you'll need some food and libations after your visit. One of the best places to stop afterward is the New Belgium Brewing Company, which functions as a microbrewery, yet their beers are distributed nationwide. Here, you can enter the tasting room to taste some of their premium concoctions straight out of the vat, such as the famous Fat Tire Amber Ale. They also have seasonal IPAs, pilsners, lagers, and stouts.

When the evening finally springs upon you, don't forget to check out some of the music venues which feature both national and local acts. The Orange Peel immediately comes to mind when you think of classic venues in Asheville, and the stage has been graced by artists such as the Black Keys and Bob Dylan. With seating for up to 1,000 and two fully stocked bars, you simply must visit the place that Rolling Stone voted one of the top five music venues in the country.

Whether you're looking to party down or just spend a pleasant evening in Asheville, make sure you find the perfect hotel to fit your budget, location, and style.
