Glorious fall colors! The mountainsides, painted with a palette fo reds, golds and greens, beckon you for a breathtaking drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, a romantic picnic by a babbling stream, or a bike ride in a leaf-strewn forest. And Halloween Fest in Transylvania County is not to be missed. While the days are made to be filled with activities, the cooler fall evenings are especially created for lounging around a toasty bonfire making s'mores. Whether you crave activity or relaxation, autumn is your season.
