Probably because most of them are heading AWAY from Asheville.

Not bragging, but after almost 20 yrs here we have done all of those listed. Some more 'fun'/scenic/less traveled/stuff to see & do on a stop...

I also recommend most any 'squiggly' two lane blacktop here in western NC, that shows up on a good map/Goog maps.

We have a very fun car and a few m/cycles so we look for less traveled 2 lanes with some 'fun driving/riding'.

I also recommend trying to do most on that that list on a weekday vs a weekend, esp in leaf peeper season.

This isn't New England/upstate NY, but there is usually some decent color and the temps are often excellent for the next 6+ weeks.

Keep it under a hundred and between the fences.

I would never even think of moving from WNC, but from my childhood living in New England/upstate NY, the colors are more vibrant. Must be the different selection of tree species.

Of course, the past two days of solid rain here dampens my WNC spirit just a smidgen.

BTW, the under 100 and between the fences is fine and dandy, but don't forget to keep the shiny side UP.

Yes, the higher proportion of maple trees in NE makes a huge difference.
