Snowy Saturdays are around the corner, and I’m thrilled to explore some of my favorite winter spots in today’s blog.

When Thomas and I lived in Vancouver, BC, we spent many weekends in Whistler. The stunning mountain town was a short one hour drive from the city, so we took many opportunities to get away from the bustling streets and find solace in the towering mountains.

Now that we are back in the Carolinas, I am sharing a few of my favorite winter weather spots for your weekend getaways!

Asheville, NC

Asheville is a beautiful mountain town brimming with delicious food, stunning art galleries, and fantastic sites to visit. Between the candlelight tour at the Biltmore Estate and a food tour downtown, you will enjoy every minute of your weekend in Asheville.

Highlands, NC

The Highlands sit west of North Carolina, just north of the Georgia border. This town is a seeming refuge amidst the tree tops and a beautiful spot for fall leaf watching and wintertime exploration. Consider a stay at the Old Edwards Inn for a true mountain experience.

Blowing Rock, NC

Of course, our absolute favorite refuge is Blowing Rock. I’ve shared what I love about Blowing Rock many times before, but the list keeps growing. With the renovation of the Green Park Inn, new restaurants budding up on Sunset Blvd., and our favorite – the Spice Shop on Main Street – Blowing Rock affords activities and sites for all ages.

And if you are preparing for travel, indulge in new gloves, a hat, and layering pieces for the changing climate!
