Flying in? The closest airport is the Asheville Regional Airport, with service from Allegiant Air, United Express and others. About two hours away, Charlotte Douglas International Airport has additional flight options.

In November, Asheville weather is typically cooling with daytime highs in the high 50s and low 60s. Low nightly temperatures are in the 30s, so be sure to pack warmer evening options. We recommend checking the forecast the week before you travel.
