The Middle-Of-Nowhere General Store With Some Of The Best Ice Cream And Burgers In North Carolina
We are so fortunate here in the Tar Heel State to have such amazing state parks to visit – and most of them are absolutely free. From Mount Mitchell State Park to Jockey’s Ridge State Park there is no doubt that our parks are quite breathtaking. Among them is a park featuring an enormous monadnock known as Stone Mountain, a huge alligator-back-shaped dome of granite with a bare face that can be seen for miles. And next to the park is a must-visit little general store called Stone Mountain Country Store that offers peace and tranquility in the shadow of the mountain, as well as some of the best burgers and ice cream around.
Sounds like a winning combination! By the way, Google reviewers currently give this little general store in North Carolina 4.5 stars. That’s amazing! We would give a day spent in the park and a visit to the Stone Mountain Country Store an easy 5-star rating.
