With life a little different during the pandemic, it is important to think of fun socially distant things to do with your family on weekends. North Carolina is full of beautiful views whether it is the mountains in Boone and Asheville, or the ocean in Wilmington and the Outer Banks. A fall day trip to Boone or Ashville is so easy and is something the whole family will enjoy. If you want to make a bigger trip out of it, a weekend away in Virginia and Tennessee is also great during the Autumn weather.
