Do you see the zipline adventures on The Amazing Race or some of the travel channel shows and wish that could be you, but with just a bit of apprehension? I am a pilot and will fly in just about anything but I like to stay inside the aircraft, even if it is an open cockpit craft such as a Stearman, but I always get apprehensive when it comes to deliberately jumping out of perfectly good airplanes or zipping along at the speed of "fast" with no support except a cable and some (I wish I knew how to underline.) protective clothing. If you find yourself in a similar frame of mind and also near High Point, please try the Kersey Valley Zipline. The staff here is among the most helpful and reassuring whom I have met.
A Coach Class Zipline pass for $89) gets you a 2.5-hour adventure at this High Point course which begins with instruction on how to don your full-body harness, helmet, and gloves. Then, you will be ready zip across lines ranging from 200 to 600 feet on a closed, ten-leg system of sky towers that are structurally engineered to exceed the requirements of the Association of Challenge Course Technology. You will dash over evergreens and a ten-acre corn maze like a comet and will have a blast. Go here for a thrill ride that may get you completely hooked on zipping.

Wood and leather, very cordial staff and they have lots of eating areas but the one we were in was completely filled before they seated anyone in any of the others. This was the first place where I had eaten in High Point since I was in college. The food was good but not spectacular. The prices were very reasonable.
Favorite Dish: My friend had the pizza buffet and spoke very highly of it. They were all thin crust and seemed to offer minimal variety but she enjoyed them. I had a salad, tilapia, and fettuccine alfredo. The tilapia was broiled very nicely but I could have easily enjoyed a couple more bites. The salad dressings (which were self-serve at the Salad/Pizza Bar) were all of a rather thin texture, so thin, in fact, that when a piece of lettuce slipped off my fork and back into the plate, the dressing splashed on to my shirt. How embarrassing! The salad ingredients were fresh and crisp, however. (Perhaps if the lettuce had been less crisp, it might not have splashed the dressing so far. ;-) ) The fettucine was the low point of my meal. It was almost plastic by the time I received it and I like to decide whether, and how much, parmesan cheese to add to my pasta. Not so here.
An adorable restaurant with great food! Located in a small shopping center, this restaurant is anything but typical. My friend and I went there for lunch and were delighted with the menu and the ambience. The wait staff is very friendly and efficient. The plates have the name of the restaurant spelled out in a very spicy sauce. I only wish I had been able to stay longer for the Jazz portion of the evening.
The name of the restaurant grew out of a child’s description of the hibachi and chopstick experience. I’m sure your visit will exceed your expectations. It has cool curved walls, innovative lighting, and comfortable hibachi seating to the extensive sushi menu, there is no comparison….not to mention entertainment and skillfully prepared food! We went with a party of 35 and they did a great job!
Favorite Dish: I personally love the chicken, but my husband loves the veggie meal. My kids like the steak.
Basically the ONLY club in High Point. It's a decent place, but basically you are gonna see the same people every weekend, and it's on the small side. They do have a comedy night on Wednesdays I think, which is okay.
Dress Code: Dress Code is Relaxed......
While most people go to High Point to check out and/or buy furniture, there are some special spots in town that sometimes escape the visitor and should be experienced at least once....
Including the world's largest chest of drawers (see atttached photo)
In 1996, the original chest of drawers from the 1920's was completely renovated and converted into a 38-foot tall Goddard-Townsend block front chest
Two gigantic socks dangle from a drawer, officially symbolizing "the city's hosiery industry."

How can you miss another "world's largest" anything????
Although larger ones have been built, many Thomasville residents still boast that the Big Chair, a 30 foot landmark replica of a Duncan Phyfe armchair, that rests in the middle of the city. between the two Main Streets is the World's Largest Chair. The original "Big Chair" was constructed in 1922 by the Thomasville Chair Company out of lumber and Swiss steer hide to reflect the city's prominent furniture industry. Because of this unusual Landmark, Thomasville is commonly referred to as the "Chair Town" or "Chair City" or "The Big Chair."
Thomasville also hosts the States oldest festival, "Everybody's Day." Originally set up as a festival where all residents could attend regardless of race or social standing.
