    I was in Asheville some 2 weeks prior to Halloween. Before I had seen quite many Halloween decorations both in small Virginia towns and in Richmond, Virginia. So, I expected to see them in downtown Asheville again. I was mistaken. I didn't see any pumpkin, even one, in downtown. The only Halloween decoration I saw was a funny dressed human size...

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

  • Hike the Crooked Arm Ridge Trail

    Great Smoky Mountains National Park Things to Do

    This was a beautiful, easy, SHORT hike (1 mile RT) with a payoff at the end - a small, multi-tiered waterfall! This path takes you parallel to a large, open field usually populated with deer. It certainly was the day we walked it. In fact, as you can see from the photos, we stood very still on the path and two deer walked from the field and across...

  • Good BBQ on OBX

    Kill Devil Hills Restaurants

    We were staying in Kill Devil Hills and asked our AirBnB host about this place, after seeing the sign driving in. It was in December and a lot of places are closed for the season. Our host was pescatarian, so didn't eat pork, but said he had other guests who liked this place, so we gave it a try. We were very pleased with the food. My wife and I...

  • U-Pick Produce Farm!

    Boone Things to Do

    You can go to the Half-Hippie produce farm and get a tour of the homestead (built in 1836!), pet baby bunnies, pick whatever veggies that are seasonally available, and peruse crafts that the owners have personally made in their wood shop. It is really easy access (about 10 minutes from Boone) and the owners are very friendly.

  • Fresh Seafood at it's finest !

    Ocracoke Island Restaurants

    Great fresh seafood. Nice atmosphere, great and quick service. We enjoyed dinner here twice during our stay in Ocracoke. Even the sides were fantastic. The baked potato was creamy as though it was mashed and even the limas were tasty. Nice variety of warm rolls and hush puppies. Their clear broth clam chowder was a delight. Baked Mahi Mahi stuffed...

  • The Best Pizza anywhere

    Ocracoke Island Restaurants

    Best Pizza I've ever eaten. The ingredients are fresh and the crust comes two ways, thin & crusty. Hubby and I plowed thru a 16" Vegetarian and just could not believe how great it was. You can call in and pick up or have it delivered. Sorry no dining in but what does it matter! Vegetarian Pizza

    Durham Things to Do

    When I was at Duke, I had very little time for off-campus activities but when I did, I usually went to Bat's for a pizza or spaghetti or to The Ivy Room for something a bit more upscale. Several years ago (at a VT meet coincidentally), I discovered, much to my dismay, that both were now closed. That same weekend, however, I discovered that the...

    Asheboro Things to Do

    Pisgah Covered Bridge, located just outside of Asheboro, is one of only two covered bridges remaining in North Carolina. The 54-foot bridge was built in 1911 for a cost of $40 but soon became obsolete as it couldn't handle the traffic. A two-lane road was built in the 1950s and the covered bridge fell into a state of disrepair. Recognizing the...
