The Durham Bulls Athletic Park

Baseball is regarded as the American pastime. While the Durham Bulls may not be a major league team, taking in a minor league game is not a bad way to spend an afternoon. It will put you in touch with the sort of activity that has characterized the nation's past. The United States has always been a nation that has adored baseball and has come out to encourage and support local teams. Catch a wave of excitement as you hear the crowd roar for this beloved minor league team.

The Billy Graham Library

Learn about the life of one of the most influential men in recent decades. Since the library is so close to where he lived, he has tried to demonstrate the proverbial spirit in which he was reared. That is why the library is shaped like a dairy barn with a silo. There is even a mechanical talking cow and a bookstore/cafe called Ruth's Attic. The library serves as a museum to the life of the great, influential man. Many who visit are intrigued by this unique feature of history.

Weather

North Carolina offers the best of winter without brutally cold conditions or piling sheets of snow. The winter is usually quite pleasant. But for those particularly sensitive to extreme weather (whether hot or cold) early Autumn will serve you well.

How To Get There

Visitors are usually pleased with the option to rent a car or a car service. Alternatively, Uber is active through the state (especially the cities). Most of the state also has active public transportation, such as bus and train systems that visitors may use.

Quiet and peaceful

5 of 5
This Cozy Villa has so many great qualities. It was an end unit nestled in the beautiful mountains of Apple Valley of Lake Lure, NC. It was a one room studio with everything one needs for a quick get-a-way including kitchen with all the amenities, separate bathroom and dressing room, and a tv with great music listening channels with a very comfortable bed to relax and take a quiet nap. We only stayed over the weekend of two nights but was very comfortable, relaxing, cozy, to say the least, and in a romantic atmosphere. Small but quaint with lots of trees which my husband enjoyed the outside deck playing his guitar which is his baby when we travel and I always enjoy a lot. This surreal Villa helped us get our "groove" back which we could have stayed all week but with work, it was a short get away for us from Charlotte, NC. and only a two hour drive. We walked the small town of Chimney Rock, had lunch, walked in the water of the brook, shopped, and enjoyed the fresh mountain air. Having dinner at Larkin's was a plus for us. All in all, a relaxing weekend of no phones, just sweetness and beauty all around us with God's presence. A must to return soon.
