    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...

  • Its a TRAP!!!

    Fayetteville Warnings and Dangers

    I've lived here for six years and you must be vigilant not to become another statistic. Technically no one really lives in Fayetteville, they live in the outskirts of the city, Raeford, Hope Mills, Spring Lake, or Sanford. Fay has all the bad parts of a urban city and hardly anything good, be careful going out late by yourself this is when it gets...

    Fayetteville Things to Do

    Had a party at RedPoint and the staff was amazing. The price was affordable and the staff were amazing. Even when my niece got nervous on her first trip up the wall the staff kept her calm and the smile on her face when she reached the top was one of my favorite pictures of the day. Thanks again for an awesome event!!!

  • 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

  • Hanging Rock Trail at HR State Park

    Greensboro Things to Do

    This trail is the classic route which takes you to the eponymous Hanging Rock. The trail starts at the Visitor's Center parking lot, on the far side from the actual Visitor's Center. It begins as a paved trail, but after about 0.25 miles it drops into a wide, friendly trail that starts to work it's way up. And up. And up. It can be steep in...

Kill Devil Hills

    Kill Devil Hills Restaurants

    Outer Banks Brewing Station is America's first wind-powered brewery and pub. It's right along US-158 and you can't miss the wind turbine. The food and beer here were very tasty and the service was pretty good. We stopped for dinner during the off-season in the winter and they were still pretty crowded. I had a burger and it was good and my wife had...

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...

    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...
