If you already have the ring and need some inspiration on where to propose, read on to discover the most romantic places in North Carolina to express your love.
The Biltmore Gardens
As the largest privately-owned home in the United States, there are few things more romantic than strolling through miles of this mansion’s colorful and manicured gardens. Not only can you see the estate itself and its grounds, but you can experience the vineyard and sophisticated lodging options. Say hello to your new fairytale.
If you or your loved one is obsessed with North Carolina’s beautiful coast, consider popping the question in Wilmington on the historic Riverwalk. Take a stroll around sunset, as the endless views of the Cape Fear River and the setting sun will set the scene as you drop to one knee.
Rainbow Falls in Gorges State Park
Head up to the mountains to Gorges State Park where you’ll find a romantic waterfall tucked away in a forest of wildflowers. Rainbow Falls is a towering view at 150 feet that is known to take your breath away. Simply follow a short trail to get to this natural beauty and the rest is up to you!
The Blue Ridge Parkway
One of the most scenic roads in the country is the Blue Ridge Parkway that runs for 469 miles through North Carolina and Virginia. The beautiful thing about this drive is that there are so many gorgeous lookout points along the way to stop the car, stretch your legs and take it all in. (Hint, hint.) If you’re going in peak season during October, you’ll be able to see a kaleidoscope of colors from every direction. It doesn’t get more picturesque than that!
The Boylan Bridge in Raleigh
One of the most beautiful places to see Raleigh’s downtown skyline is on top of the Boylan Bridge. Grab dinner or drinks at the Boylan Bridge Brewpub beforehand and take a short stroll for a breathtaking view. You know what to do next!
Freedom Park in Charlotte
As the weather gets cooler, the idea of a charming picnic seems like the perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday. Freedom Park in Charlotte is a lovely, verdant backdrop for an autumn date. With leisurely walking trails and a view of the lake, it’s a beautiful place to propose.
