Maine, Vermont, and even the mountains of western North Carolina get a lot of publicity around this time of year.
When it comes to fall getaways, these places are prized by photographers as places to capture the changing of seasons.
But don’t sleep on Edenton as the perfect spot for a fall getaway.
Edenton just might be the perfect spot to get away with someone you love, create some more memories, and enjoy the last blast of warmer weather before winter sets in.
Planning the perfect time
Our fall colors peak a few weeks after those in the northeast and the western mountains.
The “optimum” time for fall foliage in our part of the state is late October.
So, when winter begins to set in up north with cold, rainy weather, you can still come down here and experience 70 degree days along with the browns, oranges, and yellows, which signal seasons’ changing.
There is a lot to see. Staying in Edenton allows you to explore the fall foliage from here to the coast. Drive scenic highways and quiet backroads. Stop at nature preserves and wildlife reserves.
Explore the colors around the Albemarle Sound, Edenton bay, and the countless tributaries on AND off the water.
Finding the perfect accommodations
Edenton has something extraordinary for every person and budget.
With our B&Bs, you’ll have extraordinary food, spa treatments, and one-of-a-kind accommodations set in picturesque historical buildings that go back to the founding of this country.
With our vast array of vacation rentals, you’ll find cabins, cottages, and apartments perfect for any length of stay.
And, the Hampton inn provides hotel rooms with a warm touch of home, including a warm cookie, comfortable beds, and quiet nights.
While fall colors are great, a truly epic fall getaway is about more than finding the next leaf.
