September 22nd is the first day of Fall! That means apple picking, pumpkin spiced coffee and cooler weather are right around the corner. Fall, normally a time for rejuvenation, is more tense with anxiety this year because of COVID-19 and back to school. That’s why we are providing some Fall-inspired trip ideas to help rejuvenate you and your family. Here are our top choices for Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
The peak of autumn foliage should begin in a few weeks. There is no better place to take pictures of the beautifully colorful leaves than Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. The historic 105-mile Skyline Drive offers breathtaking views of nature from a mountain-top highway. If you’re interested in more than a day trip, Skyline Drive offers three lodges and plenty of campgrounds. Given current CDC guidelines, reservations are required to stay at one of the three lodges within the park. Book early so you don’t miss out!
One of North Carolina’s prized resources is the Blue Ridge Parkway. Fall leaves will start to change and peak towards the end of October. Visitors will discover everything there is to love along the 469-mile stretch of road that ascends upwards to an elevation of 6,000 feet. There is much to see and do along the way, from Cherokee life to agricultural history. Given the length of the parkway, it is best to consider at least a one-night stay along the route.
Witness Fall from one of South Carolina’s highest peaks at Caesars Head State Park. Connected to Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area, a 13,000-acre area of pristine southern mountain forest, Caesars Head State Park gives visitors the opportunity to see all the colors of fall with great views of three different states. Reservations are recommended to visit the park.
At HHHunt, we believe it’s how you live that matters and hope that you will go out and enjoy everything nature has to offer this Fall!
