Color + the Carolinas: The Ultimate Guide to Fall Foliage
The fall season has officially arrived and we could not be more excited! Vibrant colors will soon line the mountaintops and crisp breezes will fill the air. Fortunately for us, the Carolinas are the one of the best spots to enjoy fall colors.
Blue Ridge Mountains ⛰
The Blue Ridge Mountains are definitely a “hot spot” for fall foliage which is an added bonus of living in the Asheville area. According to Explore Asheville, this area has one of the longest and most colorful fall seasons in the entire world! Lucky for us, it’s right in our own backyard! The season’s colors usually arrive in late September and extend to early November. Based upon biologists’ predictions, 2018 will be a very colorful fall in the Blue Ridge Mountains!
Even though Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains aren’t a far drive from Greenville, you can also see the incredible colors from right here in the Upstate! Paris Mountain State Park is a great area to view fall colors when you only have a few hours to spare. The Swamp Rabbit Trail is also a great way to take in the fall colors with a relaxing stroll or bike ride. The peak foliage time for the Upstate usually falls somewhere between the last two weeks of October and the first two weeks of November.
