Asheville is one of the most visited cities in North Carolina. Tens of millions of tourists drive, fly, or take the bus to the largest city of its elevation east of the Mississippi River. Just a few moments in town and it’s clear why so many enjoy spending time here. Mile high mountains rise right out of the downtown skyline as if they are part of the city itself. There is a vibrant culture alive with great restaurants, music, and arts. There is a thriving business community made up of small companies and large corporations. Many of the businesses are attractions in themselves.

Fall was a spectacular fall season in and around Asheville, North Carolina. The changing leaves were as beautiful as they have been in many years, and people traveled from all over to see them. We were treated to a relatively warm October and November, but as we transition to winter, the chill is in the air. Snowflakes have been spotted and even accumulated in the higher elevations. We can delay winter no longer here in western North Carolina.
For a high elevation city and region, December through March is relatively warm. However, most winters we do deal with at least some extreme cold, snow, and ice. Many people enjoy watching the snow silently fall, and paint the landscape white; however, once the snow finishes falling on the roads, it can be difficult getting around town. For those who travel requiring wheelchair accessibility, the season can be especially challenging. At Loyal Lifts Transportation, we want to help make sure seniors and those who are in a wheelchair have the tools they need to get around Asheville safely. Here are five tips for winter travel in Asheville.
