Sightseeing

It's the largest zoo in the world and the animals have lots of room to roam. The visitors are kind of kept on trails and facilities and the animals have natural habitat as much as possible. You have to visit this wonderful attraction. There is a lot of walking to get from exhibit to exhibit, but they do have scooters available and a tram that shortens the walk. Gift shops are great also.

Know that the animals are free to roam. You purchase feed buckets there and they will eat right out of the buckets from your vehicle. It's really a hilarious time there with all the close-up encounters. We always carry a couple towels to lay over our open window so the drool and food pellets do not go down our window opening. You will have to clean your car afterwards, but it is so very worth it. We've taken tons of folks and everyone enjoys it from the young to the seniors. Just don't feed the zebras, and hold onto those buckets tightly or the antelopes will jerk them away from you. Tons of fun and not very costly.

Being a wilderness, it provides great trails for hiking that are moderatly difficult. It's quiet and peaceful. The Uwharrie Mountains are some of the oldest around and are weathered down into round-tops that are not real steep like our western mountains. Trails are well-marked, wide and easy to follow. View them in All Trails before you go.

It's a beautiful, old wooden covered bridge that's close to the Adventure Lodge. Great for photography and is a wonderful historical landmark. The small creek running under it is filled with rocks and bolders and is great for climbing on. Rocks can be slippery, so have fun and enjoy the area.

Racing history began here and a legacy was built. Race fans will LOVE it here. It represents a great success story of one of the founding families of stock car racing, their drive for engineering excellence, innovation and ingenuity. It has a down home feel and so real and comfortable. Great history of NASCAR. 268 race cars win races out of Petty's shop. You may even see Richard Petty walking around. He says, "don't be afraid to say howdy."

Making pottery is a 200 year old tradition. Some of the finest clay and potters are right here 5 miles from Asheboro. The museum strives to educate folks about the history and beauty of the pottery made in around Seagrove, NC. They provide maps of the potters locations. I believe there are over 110 pottery shops in this small pottery town.

It's an interactive entertainment attraction honoring the history and heritage of NASCAR. It's high-tech and designed to educate and entertain. They have created an enduring tribute to the drivers, crew members, team owners and others who have impacted the sport. Some of our family works as long time crew members for some of the teams, so we really value this amazing facility and what it brings to life.

Ben Owen III is an amazing potter. "Ben creates pottery that reflects a foundation in traditional early american designs, and incorporates influences from Asia, Europe, and Persia." His work can be found in many museums nationwide, including the Smithsonian Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. If you only have time to visit one pottery showroom/gallery in Seagrove, this is where we recommend you go. You will be pleasantly surprised by such beauty.

The cinema is inside the mall. Lots of stores to choose from. We like Dunhams sporting, and Belks well. Not a lot of food choices, but it's nice when it's raining you have lots of shops in a warm dry environment.

This is a high thrill ride. A great opportunity to experience a hands-on driving experience. Get suited up, with helmet, race suit, earpiece, and your own personal race spotter talking in your ear! Many folks say this is the best race car driving experience around. More intense and thrilling than a roller coaster!

We love this adventure in Pigeon Forge, TN. Many say this one is great also. Some say it's pricey for the short flight. But if you really want to fly and not have to jump out of a plane, this may be for you! You can get a voucher at Costco and save lots of $ on the experience.
