It is just a big chair. At least you can do some nice train watching from the shaded gazebo next to it.

Richard Childress Racing

Reviewed By Paul W

For a small admission fee you will be transported back in time to when Dale Sr was still racing. The old race shop has been converted into a museum FULL of Dale Sr & other Hendrick cars, trophies and Wildlife Conservation Museum. Get there when it opens for a chance to meet Danny "Chocolate" Myers (Dale's gasman) before he goes on the air for his Sirius/Xm NASCAR Radio show "Trading Paint". The shop has a 2nd floor glass hallway viewing area for the team haulers and team garages where you can see them getting the cars ready for the next race.

Thomasville Emporium

Reviewed By rcjones7664 - Thomasville, NC

You can enter this building (which is the old Belk's building), from either Main street or on Commerce street (near the water tower).
Very large store with a huge variety of antiques. There's bound to be something to
catch nearly anyone's eye here.
Store is setup with various booths (or areas) that are rented (I assume) to various sellers of antiques.

We had a wonderful experience at Kersey Valley. We were in High Point doing a service assignment for Habitat for Humanity of High Point, Archdale and Trinity for five weeks, and were donated this from Kersey Valley Laser Tag. The day was phenomenal and the people there were outstanding to work with. We would definitely recommend this experience to any and all.

World's Largest Chest of Drawers

Reviewed By pobtm - Centralia, Pennsylvania

Okay first of all: the main photo listed for this place is wrong (as of 2-18-2018). There are several large sculptures of furniture in the area. The actual site at this address does not match the photo on this listing. The correct photos for this address are for a large black dresser with two socks sticking out of the middle drawer.

Secondly, there is no parking for this building. There is a tiny real estate office next door on one side and a house on the other. Since it was a Saturday, we carefully parked at the real estate office. If you visit during the week you may not want to do that.

With those disclaimers having been said, this attraction is fun to visit. It's not just a huge sculpture of a dresser - it's actually part of an office building! If you circle around the sides of the dresser you'll see that it's attached to the rest of the building and (if you were allowed inside) you could walk inside the dresser.

I knocked on the side, and it sounded hollow and light. Maybe it's constructed from fiberglass? Anyway it's a fun celebration of the furniture industry which brought so much prosperity to this area in the 20th century.

P & G Antiques

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

We didn't find anything we needed (I did want that blue stove though) but we still loved looking at everything. It's a very small, rustic place. You can even get fresh organic eggs here. You have the feeling you're in an old general store. They even have a pot bellied stove and a table/chairs with a checkerboard set up if you feel like a game. It's a family business (grandfather and grandson) and they are soooooo nice.

Kersey Valley Laser Tag

Reviewed By R8rwest - High Point, North Carolina

I visited with my son a year or two back, and we had a great time then, so he wanted to have his birthday party here. Little did we know, they had all new equipment, including wifi-enabled guns, which were also much lighter than the old ones, making it easier for smaller kids to play. They also had a new surround sound speaker system on the battlefield that created a totally immersive experience for the players. It was like being in a video game.

They also had a leaderboard and app that kept all your stats updated throughout the matches.

Combine that with the friendly and enthusiastic staff that kept the games going smoothly and efficiently, and you have the BEST PARTY EVER!

Thank you Kersey Valley for making my 13-year-old's birthday party one that he and his friends will always remember!

Blythe Leonard Leather Goods

Reviewed By CarolinaTrekkers - Greensboro NC

The owner of this business is is a recent honors graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design. She is from a local manufacturing family, and specializes in leather goods. She is a most delightful and pleasant young lady and is very proud to make high quality American leather products; being around her is energizing. She makes wonderful purses, wallets, belts, and many other similar items, right here; her mom helps with some of the details as well. She also conducts classes from time to time, and can custom design and build as well. I have several of her purses and am proud to carry them; they are high quality and fairly priced. My husband bought a belt by Blythe and it has become his favorite. The studio, located in an old textile mill, is attractive and pleasing. She can be in and out, so giving her a call in advance is a good idea.
