Fall guide 2020: 25 must-do fall activities in and around Charlotte
The fall season is upon us, and although the pandemic has certainly changed the way we do things, there are still plenty of fun and safe ways to enjoy the season.
Pumpkin carving, pumpkin beer, apple picking, and hayrides: It’s all still available to you this season.
Here are 25 things to add to your fall bucket list that are both fun and safe.
(5) Go on a socially distant adventure at a Getaway tiny house.
Details: Getaway is a network of modern tiny house compounds with outposts in about a dozen woodsy locations throughout the country. North Carolina’s Getaway recently opened in Asheboro about 90 miles outside Charlotte. It’s basically camping lite for urban adventurers who want to escape into the woods without abandoning the familiar comfort and convenience of a hotel.
Set-up: Inside your tiny house, there’s a fully stocked kitchen, bathroom, and a queen bed (or two queen bunk beds) overlooking Getaway’s signature giant picture window. Outside you’ll find a picnic table, two Adirondack chairs, and a fire pit with a grilling grate. All Getaway sites are kid- and dog-friendly.
Cost: Nightly rates currently range from $119 to $299 depending on the season — with fall weekend dates displaying peak rates.
(10) Go apple picking.
Details: While the peak apple picking season is rounding off, there’s still time to bring home your own basket of hand-picked apples. Windy Hill Orchard and Millstone Creek Orchards are offering U-pick now through the end of September. Apple Hill Orchard, Blueberry Thrill Farm, Stepp’s Hillcrest Orchard, and The Orchard at Altapass will offer U-pick through the end of October, and Sky Top Orchard will close out apple picking season in mid-November.
