Experience Fall in and Around Wilmington, NC

Hit the local hiking trails

There’s something so peaceful about nature in fall. The vibrant colors of the leaves combined with the crisp air is the perfect recipe for a beautiful day on the hiking trails. It allows you to soak up the last bits of good weather before winter settles in. Whether you go to Bluethenthal Wildflower Preserve, Halyburton Park, or Empie Park, your new Subaru will have no problem tackling some rough terrain.

The 2019 Crosstrek, for example, is made with extra ground clearance and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.

Do some saltwater fishing

Ever tried surf fishing on Wrightsville Beach? With abundant trout, red drum, grouper, snapper, and more, fall is a fisherman’s best friend in the Carolinas. Even if you’re not a fishing aficionado, it can still be a fun activity for the whole family — especially if you have a Subaru that’s ready for adventure.

Both the Subaru Forester and Outback offer plenty of space for all your kids and your gear.

Check out the local haunts

If you didn’t know, Wilmington has its fair share of haunts. Go on a 90-minute Ghost Walk Tour of haunted houses and burial grounds throughout the city. For people 21 and over, the 2.5-hour Haunted Pub Crawl is one of Wilmington’s most popular haunted attractions. These tours are held all year round, but there’s no better time to do it than now.

After a night of spooky sights and haunting tales, the comfortable cabin and modern technology of your Subaru will welcome you back to this century.

Visit the zoo

The Asheboro Zoo is the world’s largest natural habitat zoo. It’s located a couple of hours outside of Wilmington, but the trip is well worth it. If you’re someone who likes to skip fall and go right to the winter holidays, Polar Express the 4-D Experience takes place on weekends starting in November.

For a long-distance trip like this, the Subaru Impreza and Subaru Legacy can both make the journey enjoyable.
