The cool days of fall are to be embraced if you live in the Triad because Fall is one of our most beautiful seasons where activities abound. It’s a particularly good time to rediscover the great downtown offerings in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point – where a host of entertaining and educational options abound with multiple festivals, concerts, and classes.

All artistic backgrounds and talents are welcomed at Greenhill Center’s Arts and Wellness classes in Greensboro. In Winston-Salem, a costumed guide will lead a lantern-lit tour through Old Salem for five evenings in October.

Want to hit the road? Make a road trip to remember through the autumnal glory of the Blue Ridge Mountains or travel to the coast to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the notorious Blackbeard’s death. Fall activities abound in North Carolina’s Variety Vacationland!
