Vacation Spot in October
My wife and I want to go on a long weekend in October to a place with good food and things to do but Napa is too far and Chicago and NYC we have done too much. I have been to RTP many times and tons of great food there but not much to do for a long weekend. I know you have to have some places.
Thank you for your recomendations.
Much depends on what you like to do...
Asheville has great food and drink. If you have interest in fine craft (Southern Highlands has a fall show), mountain biking, hiking, people watching, Biltmore House then you can stay as busy as you like. Fall in the mountains is high season and accommodations fill up fast.
I think there's enough "to do for a long weekend" but that's just my humble opinion. Here's an old thread combining food and activities around the triangle. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/817613
October is the tail end of hurricane season and is leaf peeping time so factor that into your decision. Others have made great suggestions to which I'll add DC and Miami/Lauderdale.
Pamper yourself at the Cloister. Just e sure not to come Ga/Fla week. 5 star accommodations. dining & golf.
