I took my little nephew to the Discovery museum last week and he had an absolute ball! It is very similar to the Children's museum in Denver and features lots of hands on activities. He particularly liked the submarine - keeps talking about "driving" the sub. I thought that Aunt Sarah's attic was a very clever concept. Wasn't at all crowded and the museum's 2 floors were well laid out. Highly recommend.

Wonderful culinary/walking tour of Davidson. Our tour guide Teresa gave the history of the town, the college and several homes and church's as we walked. The restaurant owners were gracious -and served generous samples. Come hungry! We started at Brickhouse, then walked to The Famous Toastery, The Soda Shop, South Main Sweet Shop, Fuel Pizza and finally ending at Campania. Thank you Teresa!!

Carolina Raptor Center

Talk a Walk on the Wild Side at Carolina Raptor Center What will you find on your walk around the 3/4 mile Raptor Trail? Over 30 species of raptors and other birds of prey are featured on this walk on the wild side. Owls and Vultures. Hawks and Eagles. Falcons, Corvids and other species that just don't fall into any of these categories. Have you seen a Bald Eagle up close? The Raptor Trail features a nesting pair of Bald Eagles who live out back in the Eagle Aviary. Our Spectacled Owl just can't wait to tell you what she thinks about living here at CRC, but you might have to listen carefully to what she has to say - she's a shy one. Did you know that Vultures and Corvids are some of the smartest birds around. No bird brains here! Lots of human mythology surrounds both of these families of avian brainiacs. Crows have been known to drop nuts into crosswalks so that cars can crack them and then wait for the light to change and retrieve the goodies! Behind the scenes at CRC is our Raptor Hospital, where we see approximately 900 raptor patients a year (please no songbirds or possums!). If you can't make our behind the scenes tour, don't worry, the exhibit "A Day in the Life of a Raptor Hospital" will show you what goes on there - day and night.

We spent a pleasant time visiting all the raptors in the park, most if not all of whom had been rescued in the wild after injury, and were unable to be released back into the wild due to being unable to survive there. There is...MoreThanks for coming to visit the raptors! We hope to see you again soon! Drop by for a summer flight show starting Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day weekend.

My husband and I were visiting friends in the area over Thanksgiving and they brought us to Davidson for lunch and some Christmas shopping. Us girls really enjoyed this store which was really busy, but loving all the great gift items for Christmas as well as all year round. When paying for items, the staff was very happy to gift wrap Christmas presents. Will definitely be coming back the next time we are visiting.

Joe Gibbs Racing

Reviewed By Bruce G - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA

Always a nice visit if you are passing by. The 4 monster series sponsored cars in lobby for photo ops. Trophy cases every where, glass windows overlook race shop to see cars in various stages of construction. My one markdown, souvenir shop is smaller than a few years ago. There were few diecast cars and zero M&Ms tumblers. I like the tervis brand, but they had none of any brand. Lots of hats though. Worth 45 mins if you are in the Area on a weekday during the day. Closed weekends and nights I think.

Historic Latta Plantation

This plantation is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Reviewed By francesg507 - Charlotte, NC, United States

During it's time, it would have been considered almost a mansion. The man of the house traveled and was gone for months, and his wife and several children lived in the house. Times were hard, but they managed. The place has a lot of history, and that is why it is on display and making money to have a tour. A lot of land, and a lot of activity goes on to draw crowds and make money. Lot of horse back riding in and around the planation..

Hendrick Motorsports Complex

Reviewed By Sharon W - Lenoir City, Tennessee

Our Corvette Club had the privilege of visiting this amazing complex. The five modern buildings were arranged in a campus style setting with impeccable, manicured landscaping. We had a guided tour of Mr. Hendrick's car collection which is a must see experience and has to be arranged in advance. The car collection contained thirty-one 1967 Corvettes in every paint style for that year in addition to many other Corvettes and Camaros with a 001 VIN number. The displays and buildings maintained with extreme cleanliness and care. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were able to look into one of the garages and see the shop area. The museum is free and had a lot of NASCAR displays. There is also a gift shop in the museum with all kinds of NASCAR items for sale.

No matter how you cut it. Beautiful, sunny, calm lake waters, numerous inlets to explore, many with port side dining opportunities. Boatside fishing and 95 degree temp swimming, floating or soaking. Boating, skiing, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding to name a few. Jump on in, the water is fine.

Reviewed By EMM-batraxos - Charlotte, North Carolina

There are many different trails and levels of difficulty... We walked on the Cattail Trail the day we went, circling back along the lake. We watched the boats, water skiers and jet skis on the water. Fun place to take pictures.
It's free, but very popular.
