Summer Activities

August and September are Delightful in Willow Winds

August and September are especially delightful times to enjoy all that Asheville has to offer by staying at lodging that is centrally located to the numerous activities in this mountain paradise. The temperatures in our woodland gardens are generally 10 degrees lower than at non-mountainous elevations, with evening and early morning temperatures in the 60's. During late August and early September the temperatures cool down to an ideal level and make the mountain experience all the more enjoyable. As the list of activities below indicates, there is no shortage of entertainment activities during August.
