There are endless things to do and sites to see all year round in North Carolina. However, autumn is an especially beautiful season in our state. In fact, there are so many things to do this fall, it’s hard to narrow them down. We want to help. Here are some of the top things to do in NC this fall.
Sample Some Hard Cider
You can sample hard ciders all over the state, but here are a few fan favorites:
Bull City Ciderworks
Try Off Main, their original hard apple cider. You can’t go wrong with a classic! Or if you have a bit of a sweet tooth, you will enjoy Sweet Carolina, infused with local honey. Check out their menu for more delicious options.
Flat Rock Cider Company
Their motto is “Orchard to the Glass” for a reason. They grow their own apples and blueberries and source other ingredients from the local community. Flat Rock’s year-round ciders are delicious, but keep an eye out for their incredible seasonal ciders as well!
Black Mountain Cider + Mead
Black Mountain Cider + Mead takes their cider process very seriously. With heavy influence from England, they craft their beverages with such care and attention to detail, it is unmatched.
See the Beautiful Fall Foliage
There is no shortage of awe-inspiring views in our state. If you want to see the fall colors from a mountain-top (and who wouldn’t?!), these are the best fall views in North Carolina.
Blue Ridge Mountains
Take a drive up Blue Ridge Parkway and you’ll be amazed by the diversity of colors you see. If you want more time to soak it all in, there are tons of hiking trails with incredible views as well.
Located just 15 minutes from Boone, Blowing Rock is a great place for everyone! Whether you enjoy outdoor activities, arts, museums, food and drinks, or shopping, you will enjoy Blowing Rock.
Great Smoky Mountains
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited National Park in the United States, and for good reason! Scenic drives, gorgeous hiking trails, and breath-taking waterfalls. What more could you ask for?!
Go to a Pumpkin Patch
What is fall without pumpkins? Sure, you could go pick one up from the grocery store down the road, but what fun is that? Nothing beats going to a pumpkin patch and picking one fresh off the vine.
Located in Clinton, Hubbs Farm is one of North Carolina’s favorite pumpkin patches. Every year, they create an unimaginably unique cornfield to get completely lost in, on top of 20 other attractions.
DJ’s Berry Patch
Although it is known for its juicy strawberries, DJ’s Berry Patch also grows pumpkins, along with several other fall fruits and vegetables. Whether you need pumpkins for Halloween jack-o-lanterns or Thanksgiving pies, DJ’s has what you need.
Johnny Wilson Farm
Granite Falls is home to this eventful pumpkin patch. Pick apples, pet farm animals, enjoy a 20 minute tram ride, find your way through a 3-acre cornfield, and at the end of your visit, all paying guests get to pick out their own pumpkin!
Visit a Haunted Attraction
Marr Branch Haunted House
Based on hundreds of Google and Facebook reviews, this is one of the best haunted attractions in North Carolina. It is very fun, very scary, and very affordable. It is rare to find a high quality haunted house for only $20!
Kersey Valley Spookywoods
This attraction also has a huge, nationwide fanbase. Kersey Valley has over 1,000 5-star reviews on Google! Its themed stages include Murder of Crows, Leon’s Chop Shop, and Teddy’s Playhouse.
Haunted Forest at Panic Point
This attraction is not for the faint on heart. Rated as a PG-13 event, Panic Point is a terrifying and thrilling adventure. Some of their most popular attractions are Howling Hayride, Dark Trail, and Killers in the Corn.
Whether you like the spookier side of the season, being surrounded by changing leaves, or enjoying traditional Autumn food and drinks, North Carolina has something for everyone this Fall.
