Now is the Perfect Time to Plan Your Fall Mountain Vacation
Leaves crunch under the heels of your much-loved boots that you have finally gotten to pull out and wear. A brisk wind blows the hair out of your face and pinks up your cheeks. An almost indescribably delicious smell that hints at coffee and cinnamon buns and warm baked apples wafts through the air. Ready for a fall vacation? Here are some helpful hints as you plan a trip to Asheville, NC!
Plan your budget
There is no doubt that for many of us, now is a time when we have to be a little more careful with our money. Covid-19 has disrupted many lives. However, if you are still looking to get away 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 know what you are willing and 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.
- Don't use credit cards. 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.
If you have never been to Asheville you are in for a treat. There are so many incredible activities to enjoy in the local area. Many of us immediately think of the more adventurous activities like mountain biking, kayaking, hiking or motorcycle tours, but there is so much more. You can enjoy a nice day in downtown Asheville, or along the River Arts District. There is always a great day to be had 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. No matter what your preference, we can help you plan some great things to do. Here are a few previous blog posts you might want to check out.
