Autumn in North Carolina

Between the vibrant colors and the abundance of other activities in North Carolina, a short but sweet weekend fall getaway will sate your appetite for adventure and recharge your batteries. Many paths lead through this diverse and lovely state. Which North Carolina landmarks will make you stop and pull over?

More importantly, which North Carolina vacation rental will serve as your ultimate rest stop?

Fabulous Foliage

A fine place to view the autumn gifts of Mother Nature, North Carolina attracts leaf lovers galore throughout its unusually long season. The Blue Ridge Parkway, a designated All-American Road, forges a path through the multi-colored North Carolina Mountains and connects awestruck travelers to a host of restaurants, shops and North Carolina cabin rentals. This weekend, driving will be an adventure rather than a chore, so buckle up and get ready to be dazzled.  

Warming Trends

Pack a sweater or light jacket for cooler evenings, but look forward to warm and pleasant daytime temperatures that should continue to reach the 80’s in September, the 70’s in October and the 60’s in November (depending on which part of the state you end up in, of course). No matter how you choose to spend this refreshing weekend you’ll certainly be glad the weather will play a cooperative role. 

Culture Shock

After taking in the natural wonders of autumn in NC, venture into town to see what artsy endeavors you might enjoy. Live theater, galleries, craft fairs and museums can be found in Charlotte. For a look at the famous Biltmore Estate and a counter culture that rivals lefty college towns, visit Asheville.  Check out the universities in Raleigh or take an enlightening tour of the International Civil Rights Museum in Greensboro for a social and historical perspective of the state.

Forks in the Road

Known for pork barbecue and various southern-inspired comfort foods like fried okra, hush puppies, grits and cornbread, you won’t have to worry about going hungry while you’re here. Ditch the guilty conscience and let yourself give into the not-exactly-healthy but oh-so-delicious dishes you’ll encounter (and don’t forget the sweet tea). It’s only for one weekend, after all.

Active Duty

Between picturesque golf courses and endless trails for hiking, climbing and biking you’ll have no excuse not to feel the burn while you’re here. Bald Head Island, and of course, the Outer Banks are excellent spots to get your heart pumping outdoors. Casting off calories will be a pleasant side effect, but the real pleasure will come from breathing the crisp mountain air as you kayak, sail or simply stroll through what you’ll surely find to be a welcoming and beautiful autumn destination.
