I'll answer the hiking part of the question. It all depends on where you are in the Triad and how far you want to drive. We enjoy Hanging Rock State Park, Pilot Mountain State Park, Stone Mountain State Park, and to a lesser extent Morrow Mountain State Park.

Old Salem would be neat this time of the year as well as Tanglewood Festival of Lights.

I simply mean its outside the 2 "core" counties of the Triad. Just trying to avoid confusing a newcomer.

The Piedmont Craftsmen's Annual Crafts Fair was held the weekend before Thanksgiving. However, Piedmont Craftsmen operates a full-time gallery in the heart of the Downtown Arts District at the corner of Fifth St and Trade St. The entire Arts District is a great place to explore for art - traditional and unconventional - as well as eat & drink.
