A perfect weekend taps our resources

Umstead State Park, Raleigh

The forecast for this weekend could not be better. Early morning lows in the low to mid-40s, daytime highs in the mid-60s to 70. Sunny.

Perfect fall weather — but you never know how long it will last. Thus, you are obligated this weekend to take advantage. A reminder about some GetGoingNC.com resources to help you plan your fun.

Hiking This forecast, coupled with the onset of fall color, makes this weekened perhaps best suited for taking a hike. A reminder that we have teamed with Great Outdoor Provision Co. to create a collection of five great places to hike in and near seven of North Carolina’s largest metro areas. You can find that guide here. You can find more information on hiking destinations at our sister site, NCHikes.com.

Paddling Again, our collaboration with Great Outdoor Provision has resulted in five great places to paddle in and near seven of North Carolina’s big cities. Find out about those paddles here.  And if you’re in need to a boat, check out our list of 41 Places to Rent a Canoe or Kayak in North Carolina.

Greenways A walk? A run? A bike ride? A trip with the family? You can do it all on North Carolina’s greenways. And you can find greenways throughout the state on our Greenway

Climbing If you want to take advantage of the perfect weather in a somewhat diabolical manner, check out your neighborhood climbing gym. During the day this weekend, it’s likely to be deserted.
