There’s No Other County Park In North Carolina Quite Like This One

When you think about it: North Carolina has it all. We have the mountains, the sea, big cities, small towns, and a world of outdoor activities that bring joy and increase our quality of life. One of those outdoor places is a county park just five miles south of the state capitol. The park’s centerpiece is an old grist mill built in 1756.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
