Visit Lafayette Village, A Charming Village Of Shops In North Carolina

While we all may find a love and a need for outlet malls and shopping plazas as we know them, there’s a special village of shops hiding in North Carolina that carries with it all of the charm found while strolling through a European village in France or Italy. Furthermore, you’ll only find wonderful little boutiques and specialty restaurants here – as opposed to big chains. If you have yet to discover the enchantment found at Lafayette Village, then you’re in for a delightful surprise.
