Sweater weather is here in the Charlotte area. The pandemic has changed how we are gathering this year, but for those living in the Charlotte, NC area there are great activities outdoors that are the perfect way to social distance.
These are the top 5 things you must do this fall in Charlotte that are still fun and safe.
From picking the perfect pumpkin to drinking your favorite pumpkin beverage, we know the best places for pumpkin lovers. Pick the perfect pumpkin at Simpsons Produce if you are in town. Want more of an adventure? Visit Hunter Farm for pumpkin picking and a petting zoo.
Pumpkin beverages are also a tasty treat this time of year. Try a pumpkin ale at a local brewery. NoDa Brewing, Sycamore Brewing, and Catawba Brewing all have a beer to try. Pumpkin Spice Latte more your speed? Try Mugs Coffee, Central Coffee Co, or a fall spiced latte at Not Just Coffee.
The Charlotte area has great mazes to get lost in! Visit Huntersville for the Amazing Maize Maze at Rural Hill. This is always a favorite maze as it is spread out over 7 acres of cornfield. Spend a day of fun at Aw Shucks Farms. Who can make their way through the maze the fastest in your group? They also have an animal barn, gem mining, bonfires, and food.
Let’s Take A Hike
Locals know that you could take a different hike around the area for a year. Our favorites close to the Queen City are Crowders Mountain and Morrow Mountain. Ready for a day trip instead? Head to South Mountain State Park for a hike with beautiful waterfall views. Drive the Blue Ridge Parkway and see the beautiful fall foliage and take a hike at Grandfather Mountain. The views are amazing this time of year.
Drive-In Movies Are Back
This summer we were excited that drive-in movie theaters were making a comeback as the pandemic shutdown indoor movie theaters. Hound’s Drive-In in Kings Mountain is offering movies and live concerts. Papa Doc’s Shore Club is also offering dockside movies through the end of October. Watch the movie from your boat or their patio!
The Great Pumpkin Wall
One of our favorite events each year is the Elizabeth neighborhood pumpkin wall. While there won’t be a carving party this year, the wall will be filled with pumpkins beginning on October 29th. This year you can find the wall at the empty lot at the corner of Laurel and Greenway.
While this fall looks a little different than years past, we hope you are able to get outside and enjoy the beautiful city we call home. Would you like more information about the real estate market in Charlotte? Contact Catharine Pappas today.
