I have a 3 1/2 year old grandson and wanted to research fun things to do in North Carolina with him and to share with you. Y’all, I was blown away! I found so much information that I decided not to recreate the wheel. I am sharing great links I found on everything from celebrating
Things to Do: February in NC
I know February can be kind of a blah month if we let it be. The holidays are over but spring is a few weeks away. But y’all, there are so many good things happening in February! I had a hard time keeping the list even this short – I didn’t even include the concerts
Day Tripping: It all started with a burger!
Our Wandering Wednesday all started with a burger. A famous one we had to try, rated as one of the top burgers in North Carolina, in the small town of Elizabethtown. B and I had both been to this little town as children spending summers at White Lake but neither of us had been to
New England Trip: New Hampshire
Our trip continues… I want to start out by saying that out of the three states we visited, we loved something about them all, and NH was the most colorful! It was almost as if Maine was a little pre-peak (not much though!), NH was in peak season, and VT was just past by a
New England Trip: Maine
It had always been on my dream bucket list to stay in a bed and breakfast in a New England state in the fall, sit on a cozy porch overlooking the mountains and the colors, and my dream came true! My husband and I got married in May and delayed our honeymoon until October so
What, no bacon?! Chapel Hill Adventure
Last fall, B and I set out to go on some little adventures and we did go to wonderful places like Little Washington, NC, Floyd, VA, and fancy camping in Weaverville (town was great; camping, well, that wasn’t so fancy! LOL). We also went ziplining, which B had never done, we tried new foods and
In our mission to visit a new place each month, if possible, I’ve been trying to talk B into a treehouse or silo adventure with no success. One day in July, I was perusing Our State magazine and found a little adventure in Weaverville, North Carolina, and I said this is it! It was a
Washington, NC Adventure!
When we first chose Washington as our September adventure, I was unsure what to expect. I’d grown up hearing of this little town on occasion, always known as Little Washington, but had never really heard much about it other than the name, until a friend recommended giving it a try. This is the kind of
Floyd, Virginia: Day One
In my continued search for hometown America and visiting the tucked away towns, a sweet lady on the Crazy Girl Facebook page, Kathy, recommended her town of Floyd, Virginia as a place we should visit. I’d heard of it my whole life and had never been there so off we go to check out all
As many of you know, B and I are on a mission to adventure more, go off the beaten path, and visit the well-known paths we’ve never seen! You all have inspired us with your list of recommendations and that’s what we’re going by as much as possible. Last week, we had a trip
I grew up in Alamance County and must admit I did not realize all this charming town of Graham, North Carolina has to offer until I researched for this article. Whether you’re an unaware native like me or you’re looking for great places to visit in our state, maybe a fun day trip, Graham has something
The trip that didn’t happen.
Last week, B and I were scheduled to leave on a beach trip as sort of a last beach hoorah before winter and I was ready to celebrate the end of a crazy photography season. B had taken off Friday and Monday and we were leaving Friday morning. I stayed up late every night working
