Hello: We have three days to explore and see fall colors in and around Charlotte. We have two young ones 5 and 1yr. We do not want to do tons of driving since we will have alreasy drove 10 hrs to reach Charlotte. That being said- we want to do things like hayride, visit apple orchard, simple tour or something fun. We canceled the Pigeon Forge trip because of the multiple stops with airlines ans restrictive rental car prices. Where wouls tou suggest a base of operations be for the time we are in the Charlotte vicinity? Also, suggestions for fun outdoor activites also welcome!
