Hot-Springs is a small, quaint town located just 40 minutes northwest of Asheville, within the Pisgah National Forest along the French Broad River. It was named for the hot mineral springs located in the town, and has long been known as a relaxing and romantic getaway. The hot springs were first discovered in 1792, and by the late 1800s, people from all over the country were traveling to Hot Springs to enjoy the curative waters, fresh mountain air and gorgeous scenery. Along with the mineral springs, some of the best massage therapists in the country can be found in Hot Springs - sure to make this one of the most blissful vacation destinations you'll discover. Outdoor enthusiasts will also enjoy Hot Springs. There is hiking on the Appalachian Trail, rafting, canoeing, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing and boating in the area. Hot Springs is also known for its' arts and crafts and is home to a crafters' cooperative that features works of some of the local artisans. When it comes to dining, you'll find everything from old-fashioned country cooking to gourmet food in Hot Springs, and accommodations range from rustic camping to beautiful bed and breakfast inns. Hot Springs hosts an Annual Trailfest, which is a celebration of the Appalachian Trail, with lots of good food, mountain music and outdoor adventure.

Hot Springs Weather & Climate

The Mountains  of northwestern North Carolina has a variable weather pattern depending on the elevation. Temperatures usually run 10 to 25 degrees cooler in the higher elevations than in the valleys below. Spring has mild days and cool nights with some rainy days. Summer is warm and humid with scattered afternoon thunderstorms. Temperatures rarely rise above 90 degrees in this region (or above 80 at elevations of 5,000 feet or higher.) Conditions begin to cool down by October, and this is also the best month to view the spectacular fall foliage. In winter, the high mountains protect the outlying areas, so there is seldom a major snowfall. Highs run in the 40s and 50s. Although snow in winter is likely, most ski resorts rely on snowmaking equipment because daytime highs can often hover in the 40-degree range.
