West-Jefferson and Jefferson are considered "sister cities," located in Ashe County near Mt. Jefferson State Park. Jefferson is the larger of the two towns, with a population of approximately 1,400, and West Jefferson has just over a thousand residents. Sightseeing along miles of scenic highway along the Blue Ridge Parkway, browsing for antiques and mountain crafts, is one of the most enjoyable ways to spend a day when visiting West Jefferson. Or, stay right in town, which has over a dozen art galleries, antique and specialty shops of its' own. Outdoor recreation also abounds in the area, and West Jefferson serves as the gateway to the New River State Park and Mt. Jefferson State Park regions. Activities to choose from include rafting and canoeing the New River, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, swimming and skiing. There are two wonderful golf courses located near West Jefferson and a shooting reserve. Ashe County features 4,000 parks, many situated along the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway, and hundreds of hiking trails meander through the countryside. If it happens to rain when you visit, a tour of the Ashe County Cheese Factory is an interesting way to spend an afternoon, or check out the Ashe Arts and Civic Center. West Jefferson is approximately two hours from the Linville Gorge and Caverns and the resort towns of Banner Elk and Boone.

West Jefferson Weather & Climate

The mountainous Northeast region of Tennessee has a temperate climate with moderately cold winters and warm, humid summers. Precipitation is distributed fairly evenly throughout the year so there is no distinct wet or dry seasons. October has the least rainfall, July the most. Snowfall is variable from year to year, and some winters have relatively little. Thunderstorms occur anytime of the year, but are most frequent in spring and summer. Summer temperatures are rarely extreme, but the high humidity often makes it seem hotter than it actually is. Severe storms are infrequent in the state, being east of the center of tornado activity, south of most blizzard conditions, and too far inland to be affected by hurricanes.
