Tobacco Road Golf Club

This course threads through a former sand quarry and has the feel of a maze.

Reviewed By CliveWatkins - Dallas, Texas

This is a challenging to say the least course. Built into the tall Pines, every hole is a hole you will talk about with your buddies. It was very basic when we were there, club house wise, but if you are looking for a challenge in the woods, this is it. Should be part of your experience in the Carolinas

Aloha Safari Zoo

Reviewed By DoctorCP

This zoo it a neat place to visit when looking for something different. For $12 you can see a wide array of animals from birds, reptiles, tigers and lions, cows and goats, pigs, giraffe,African animals, wolves, and much more. You can buy food to feed the animals which adds another level of interaction. It’s the closest you’ll ever get to tigers, giraffes, and other animals. The cost includes a tractor pulled ride through the back section where they allow you to throw bread to the animals. They come running for the tractor.

It is almost all outdoors and on uneven ground so dress and plan accordingly. Restrooms are porta potties. They have a snack and drink shop along with a little gift shop. It’s a great place for children and adults.

The Great Escape

Reviewed By Damien C

I did two rooms based on the advice of local owners I know from another room. First, the company is in the middle of nowhere and seems pretty dead, when I booked the room, on a rainy and cold Sunday (when an escape room should be booming) they was no one there other than staff, with myself being the only booking for the room. The first one I did was Cabin in the Woods. I loved the concept of the room, however the execution was bad.And the room seemed cheaply put together. The briefing employee made a big deal to point out not to touch so and so and such and such because it was easily broken to the point when I entered the room (they don't give you a clue for the 1st 20 minutes) I spent 20 minutes searching for something I was supposed to do and it turns out it was something I was afraid to touch due to the briefing. Then another puzzle didn't work well no matter how hard I tried even with the clues given, the game master had to come in the room to help, and even he had a hard time at first. Also, even though I was the only person in the room, there wasn't that many puzzles. A team of 2 or 3 would be good, but a team more than that would quickly get in the way of each other as there just isn't enough to do.

I recently went back this month and in contrast the Mad Hatter room was brilliant. Still no other bookings were there just my group of two and it seemed only 1 employee. Mad Hatter was actually one of the best rooms I have done out of 60+ now. One great concept I've never seen in any other rooms I have done is that you have to use all 5 of your senses to complete the room! Bravo on that! Familiar storyline, but the execution was perfect. Only complaint is the game master gave a very misleading clue that actually stopped us from progressing as we should have.

I want to go back and give the Bomb Squad a try, but I have heard that one group had 3 different "malfunctions", so maybe in a couple of months after all the bugs have been worked out.

The Old Hardware Antiques

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

This building was a Ford agency in 1920 and then became a hardware store and mule auction center. It isn't cluttered at all and is easy to get around. Unfortunately it's more furniture and new item than collectibles. Be sure to grab a bite to eat at the Dewberry Deli and Soda Fountain downstairs. They do have a/c and it tries to work (still warm in there) but the ceiling fans helped to move the air around.

Sullivan's Antiques

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

The building was built in 1951 and until recently it served as the Cameron Farm Supply. The place is wide open and clutter free making it easy to get around. It's air conditioned which is a big plus for me. The hours are Mon - Sat 10 - 5.

McPherson's Store

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

The building was a general store from 1885. If you are looking for China, that's about all they have here along with some furniture and a few other things. They are open Wednesday - Saturday, 10 - 5. A small area inside is The Tea Cozy (serving food 11 - 5). It offers sandwiches/tea and wine tasting of local wines. My problem was the lady working there followed behind us the entire time and we find that very irritating. It's worth a trip to Cameron to shop here and in the 10 other antique stores and to walk up and down the main street to see the historic homes, church, and old jail. In the spring and fall Cameron also hosts an antique festival with over 300 dealers coming in and setting up in the yards which is always worth the trip (google to find out the exact dates).

The Old Cameron Jail

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

I've been trying to get this antique store listed on Tripadvisor and they told me it was already listed and sent me this link. The old jail shares the same address as the antique store so maybe that's why.

The Muse Bros. Store was established in 1876. In the early 1900s it became the Cameron Cotton Mill. Now it's a very nice antique store. It offers a little bit of any type of thing you may be looking for and if you are looking for lamps just head upstairs. Also try some of their coffee at The Coffee Grind.

Now & Then Antiques

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

In 1833 this building was the McKeithen's Mercantile Store. It's now a small antique store that makes you feel you have stepped back in time as soon as you walk in. They offer some good collectibles but unfortunately it's very hot inside. The hours are Thurs - Sat 11 - 5. I would have rated it higher if it wasn't so hot inside.

This Old House Antiques

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

This was a residence built in 1890 The first thing you notice as you walk in the door is the clutter. It's sensory overload because you are seeing all these collectibles and knickknacks but you really can't focus anything. It's extremely hot inside and gets hotter as you walk towards the back (but the clutter does get better as you continue walking).

Baby B Antiques

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

Baby B Antiques is in one of about 10 antique stores Cameron. Baby B was well organized with no clutter and offers a little bit of anything you might be looking for. It can be very warm inside so I suggest going during the cooler months.

Cameron also has 2 antique festivals a year (bringing in over 300 dealers from around the country) so be sure to google them for the dates if a full day of antiquing is your thing.
