You’ll Be Happy To Hear That North Carolina’s Fall Foliage Is Expected To Be Bright And Bold This Year

Many people living in North Carolina undoubtedly remember last year’s rather dull fall foliage, a result, reportedly, of an extra long rainy season that summer before. You may be happy to hear that this summer’s rain won’t have quite the effect upon our fall foliage enjoyment as it did in 2017. In fact, the predictions from SmokyMountains.com’s interactive map are very favorable for a nice, bright display for us in the Tar Heel State this year. And we couldn’t be more thrilled.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
