There is holiday each fall that children and adults look forward to, Halloween. We at Orchard Inn love the fall here in the Western North Carolina mountains and especially Halloween. It is a time we all get to dress up and let loose and have fun. For it’s a great chance to have fun with the kids and be the official candy taste tester. Some of us enjoy to traveling to other towns during this time and having fun with others. One thing that you may be wondering is what to do to have a great Halloween in Asheville. Trust us, there are plenty of Asheville Halloween activities for you to choose from. Let’s have a look at some of them!
First up in our top picks for Asheville Halloween activities is for those of us who not only like to learn a bit about the town we are in but love to laugh about it as well. We suggest you book a trip with Lazoom Tours. They are known for entertaining guests as they talk about Asheville and the perfect tour around Halloween is their Haunted Comedy Tour. While the content may be funny, it isn’t for the faint of heart. You will get to ride around on an open air bus and just enjoy the sights and the stories. For those of you who like to have a drink on this tour, you can as long as you keep it on the bus and are at least 21 of course. One thing these tour guides highly recommend is to bring your camera!
Our next suggestion is for those of you who just like to dress up and have a great time then a Halloween in Asheville is perfect for you. The Grove House will be hosting its annual Halloween party as well as a costume contest. Unlike others, this costume contest has a high cash prize that many will be trying to get. Also, what sets this party apart from other Asheville Halloween activities is that your entry fee will get you into not only 1 bar but 3 bars. Which means there will be 8 DJs, 4 bars, and 3 dance floors. Tickets are $25 a night or $20 for those in costume. The times for this party each night will be from 9 pm to 3 am and will be a ton of fun.
Our last suggestion is for travelers who love to learn and be scared. Whether you decide to come to Asheville in the fall or another time of year you must book a tour with Haunted Asheville. The streets of Asheville are calm now but according to these tour guides, they have quite a past. They have many different tours to choose from including their famous original walking tour to some more specialized tours like their Pub Crawl and their Biltmore Village Mystery Tour. Whichever one you choose, you will be sure to have a great time.
As you can see, when it comes to history, and scary Asheville Halloween activities, nothing can beat a trip to the North Carolina mountains. When you do decide to come our way, we hope you will consider staying with us at Orchard Inn.
