4 of the Best Things to Do in Western NC in February
1. Go on a Winter Hike
Did you know that it rarely snows in Asheville? The city is protected by the highest mountains in eastern America, but snow can be found on mountain peaks and in ski areas. Your winter hike may or may not contain snow, but we love it when there is a blanket of fresh powder covering the towering trees around us as we make our trek! Hiking is a popular activity year-round in our area, and there are tons of spots we can recommend for you to go to.
2. Visit a Brewery
The Asheville area is known for its breweries and tasting some craft beer is the perfect way to spend a chilly day. Stouts are the preferred beer of winter, but you can try all types when you get a flight at one of our favorite breweries! Many small breweries are within walking distance from one another, or you can opt to spend a few hours at one of the larger options like New Belgium Brewing Company.
