5 Perfect North Carolina Daycation Spots

Quarantine got you down? Take a daycation! North Carolina is host to a number of hidden and not-so-hidden getaway spots that are safe, outdoors, and fun for the whole family. Pack up the kids or plan a quick escape with your significant other to one of these excellent options that Revisn recommends!

Located just a two-hour drive from Raleigh, Pilot Mountain is an excellent option for a one-day getaway. With many landmarks, trails, camping options, and ample climbing space, Pilot Mountain is a diamond in the rough near the North Carolina Piedmont. We recommend getting to Pilot just before 10 a.m. before their very popular facilities reach capacity as per NC Parks COVID-19 precautions.

Right here in the heart of Raleigh, Dix Park proves one of the best options for a daycation. With plenty of space to spread out among vast, rolling fields, Dix Park is popular with the Raleigh locals as a summering spot even though fall is just around the corner! Stay all day in the sun and pack a picnic. Bring out your favorite yard games and a radio and spend a day at the park. Just don’t forget to pack the sunscreen!

Wine country comes to North Carolina at Yadkin Valley! Treat yourself and your partner to a romantic getaway that could extend to a whole weekend of fun. Yadkin Valley’s many wineries and secluded, natural scenery will intimately set the tone for you and your partner. You can also take a friend or your family and enjoy golfing, gourmet eats, and beautiful sight-seeing! Located just under 3 hours west of Raleigh, we recommend Yadkin Valley to any couple eager for a quick and safe jaunt out of town.

The grounds along Blue Ridge Parkway are open year-round and play host to many families’ camping trips every season. Plan to hike some of the trail, drive along the beautiful, twisting scenic route, pack up the RV, or bring along your bike. Endless activities await you at Blue Ridge Parkway! Their website includes season-by-season guides to enjoying the parkway, including nature scavenger hunts. We find Blue Ridge Parkway to be a safe outdoor option for a socially distanced daycation with the family or fun for the whole weekend!

While you’re on the Blue Ridge Parkway, you may opt to visit Linville Falls, the most popular spot in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Spend the whole day with the family trying out their different trails. Work your way up from the simple 1.6-mile Falls Trail up to the more strenuous 1.4-mile Gorge Trail, then rest at the falls and enjoy the gorgeous sights.
