Can you feel that? The warm weather and longer days have returned! Wipe the hibernation sleep from your eyes and crawl out of your winter hoodies. Come downtown and enjoy these ultimate outdoor spots:

 


Sculpture Park

Take a break while enjoying some beautiful abstract art in a garden-like setting at the new Sculpture Park. A great place to meet a friend, read a book, or take a walk!

Chess Tables
Bring your own game pieces (and an opponent) and have a friendly competition at one of our Chess tables.


Sidewalk Seating

Grab some food to-go and enjoy it at any of the public sidewalk seating areas.

Mitchell CC Campus
Take a stroll through the campus at Mitchell Community College. Admire the breath-taking tulips.


Outdoor Dining

Choose outdoor seating at several restaurants and bars. Enjoy a street view or a fireside dinner.

Fourth Creek Burial Ground
Wander through the old cemetery and take in a piece of revolutionary history. You will likely not have to worry about running into anyone you know.

Pecan Park & Little Free Library
Borrow a book from the Little Free Library at Pecan Park, then pick a bench to relax and read.

Walk the Sidewalks
Go for a walk on our sidewalks and rediscover your historic downtown. Admire the architecture, discover a new shop, and look for the movie markers.


Farmer’s Market

Shop local at a downtown Farmer’s Market at Pecan Park (April- October) and Rotary Farmer’s Market (May-October).

Fountain Pocket Park
This hidden treasure is off the beaten path yet so close. Behind the City Office Building at 301 S. Center Street, you will find a fountain and benches for a nice spot to enjoy lunch or a cup of joe. Fountain opens April 1st.

Rocking Chairs
Do some people-watching in the rocking chairs in front of the Old County Courthouse and near First ARP Church.

Trail Markers
Walk the same path of Civil War soldiers and follow the historic markers for Stoneman’s Raid and the home of Governor Zebulon Vance. Or check out the new Fresco Marker at the Civic Center, one of 6 stops along the Ben Long Fresco Trail.
