Now is the Perfect Time to Plan Your Fall Mountain Getaway
There are few place as beautiful as the North Carolina mountains in fall. The leaves turning, the cool crisp air and that wonderful rustling of the leaves underfoot. Yes, fall is indeed a special time. It is also a great time to visit the North Carolina mountains and now is the best time to start planning your fall getaway. Reservations fill fast in the fall so don't delay. Here are several tips to help you plan your Asheville fall getaway.
Make a budget
There is no doubt that for many of us now is a time when we have to be a little more careful with out money. Covid-19 has disrupted many lives. However, if you are still looking to getaway from it all, you can, and you can do so for a reasonable investment. Like any large purchase it is always best to set up a quick budget. Budgets help prevent overspending and will help you plan how much to set aside for a few months before heading out on your trip. Here are a few quick budget tips.
- Use the envelope method. Save a few dollars each month and set it aside in an envelope. This can be for vacation, dining out or for the activities you want to try while in Asheville.
- Plan your activities and what you are willing/able to spend on them. Biltmore might be a treat you want to splurge on, or maybe it is a brewery tour. Knowing ahead of time will help you plan better.
- Don't use credit card. It is best to avoid splurging on a trip by using a high interest rate credit card. Instead plan on paying cash, you'll come home a whole lot more relaxed if you don't have a large credit card bill waiting in the mailbox.

You can enjoy a nice day in downtown Asheville, or along the River Arts District. There is alway s day at the part along the French Broad River. But, perhaps maybe the best activity is the one where you just sit on the deck, watch the fall colors turn and enjoy a good book.
