Be sure to walk the downtown
It is an extremely friendly town and there is a lot of outdoor dining in warm weather. Folks love to walk up and down the streets and check out the shops, which have much more conservative prices than most towns with specialty shops. There are 2 nice antique malls in older buildings, too We love the Twilight Tour in early December. Also we have a great time around Hallowe'en, after all, this is Transylvania County. I am extremely pleased about the placing of the downtown historic district on the National Register of Historic Places.
