In a couple of weeks, my sister and Dad are coming to visit. Besides taking them to the mountains to see fall foliage and local museums, where can we take them? Are there local events happening the weekend of 10/16th and following week?

Thanks.

It is helpful if we know where they are visiting from.
If from a state with no coast they may enjoy a day trip to the beach if it has dried out by then.

Family's coming from southern California. They've been here once a few years ago before we relocated.

Sylvan Heights Bird Park is a neat day trip. Animal lovers would enjoy Duke Lemur Center or Carolina Tiger Rescue (get advance tickets) or the zoo in Asheboro.

How "mobile" are they?" When you say "older", for me it brings to mind the issue of whether they can do a lot of walking or would prefer a more compact area without such.

My sister is 50+ and dad is mid-70's. Both are very mobile.

I'll look into the suggestions and ideas. Thanks!
