North Carolina is one of the top apple-producing states in the country, and its cideries capitalize on the harvest. Local favorites include GoodRoad Ciderworks and Red Clay Ciderworks, both hosting a warm, relaxing atmosphere.

Ritz-Carlton Recommends: After sampling cider, visit one of the city’s breweries for a fall-inspired craft beer.

Charlotte is home to acres of family farms hosting pumpkin patches and apple picking throughout the fall season. Sip cider, take a hayride, and explore a corn maze before selecting the perfect carving pumpkin.

Ritz-Carlton Recommends: Ask our Ladies and Gentlemen for their favorite farms and fall destinations.
