Enjoy the Fall Colors

-written by: MATT

What a great time to go for a family drive to enjoy all of the colors fall has to offer.

Whether it’s a two hour drive or a 30 minute quickie, there are plenty of fall colors to view.

For a quick drive, head North on highway 63 (Leicester Highway) travel about 4 miles, then take a left on Newfound road. This scenic stretch of road will take you through the Heart of the Homminy Valley community all the way to Interstate 40 (about 25 miles or so). Gaze at the beautiful and majestic vistas, pasture land, old farmhouses and the charm of an era gone by. You will surely fall in love with this part of the county.

For a longer, more scenic trip, continue south on Highway 63 all the way to 209 North, then take 25/70 back to I-26 towards Weaverville/Asheville. You will see lots of fall color, local charm, vegetable and craft stands, and many other beautiful sights that you and your family are sure to enjoy.

Don’t get in a rush, take the time to stop and let your senses overload.

Pack a light sweater; it may get a little nippy.

Enjoy !
