Asheville Area Tops Leaf Peeping List

Beautiful fall foliage in the Balsam Mountains seen from our back patio at Brookside Mountain Mist Inn Bed & Breakfast
According to the Asheville Citizen-Times, announced its top 10 fall foliage destinations with the Asheville area as the No. 1 place to see the fall leaves. The list is based on a survey of more than 2,300 travelers.
Calling the Asheville area's scenery "spectacular" for views found along drives such as the Blue Ridge Parkway, the city beat out second-place Boston of New England foliage fame. In third place was nearby Gatlinburg, Tenn., just over the Great Smoky Mountains from Western North Carolina.

The leaves at elevations of 6,000 feet or higher could reach peak color this weekend. Destinations such as Mount Mitchell, just outside of Asheville, are showing wonderful color right now. However, lower elevations, like right here in quaint Waynesville, NC, are only showing slight signs of fall. At Brookside Mountain Mist Inn, we overlook the Balsam Mountain Range with elevations reaching 6,401 feet! So far, we don't see much color out there, but its coming!
