For many people traveling to North Carolina’s popular Hot Springs, a stop at the Laurel River Store is almost a rite of passage located at one of the prettiest crossroads where the turn toward Hot Springs crosses the scenic Big Laurel Creek, complete with a waterfall beneath the old concrete bridge.
Expect (and look forward to) an OPEN sign there in the future. This is one charming little store you don’t want to pass on by, so be sure to plan to stop here if they’re open when you reach the crossroads of US-25 and NC-208.
