Dive the East

Adventurers travel far and wide to experience life underwater. By that, we mean snorkeling. Some fly hours to Belize, or Thailand or Bonaire. Some make the best of what is right in their backyard and yes, that means in North Carolina too. Snorkeling in North Carolina is a popular pastime and more accessible than you’d think. Before grabbing your passport, we recommend visiting one of these snorkeling spots on the coast of our great state!

Treat Yourself

Relax, unwind and re-center yourself. It’s tax season, which means that you are probably buried in work, paperwork or a combination of the two.

Fortunately for you, Chatham County is home to many havens, places where you can get your mind off of life’s many stressors. You may find relaxation at the park, at the spa or right in front of the television.

Ice Cream for Dinner, Anyone?

Take a step back into the past. In the heart of historic downtown Pittsboro, located at 85 Hillsboro St., transport your taste buds to simpler times, with bursting flavors of both savory and sweet.

We hope you saved room for dessert!

Hike to an Airplane Crash in North Carolina

We all know that North Carolina has much to offer; however, it’s home to only one known plane crash site. Tucked in the Great Smoky Mountains, Waterrock Knob Trail is your literal road to ruin. A highly-rated trail for hikers and explorers alike, the trail is two miles roundtrip, located at the highest elevation on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The closest city being Waynesville, the area has a remote feel to it, making it the perfect spot for stargazing, bird watching and complete immersion in nature. Of course, its most unnatural feature is its plane crash site.
