Linville Caverns was a neat site. We went in the summertime, and while it was 90 degrees outside, it was in the 40's inside the caverns, so I'd recommend that one should bring a coat or sweater when visiting. Also, if you're claustrophobic or have a fear of darkness, there will be times of closed in hallways and dark areas along the tour, though it is part of the fun. I would recommend it if you're visiting Boone or the areas surrounding.
The suites are gorgeous, loaded, and updated! The kitchen was huge, the two bedrooms in our suite were really nice (the master bedroom had a huge whirlpool tub with really strong jets), and the decor was modern but very comfy. The location was also great. It was not far from Colonial Williamsburg, the outlets, nor anything needed in town, though in a comfortable, quiet area of Williamsburg. The amenities on site were also nice...a great gym, huge outdoor pool (though we did not use because it was wintertime), and a great indoor pool and spa area. The pool was a good size, though I was surprised at how large the spa was. We had an enjoyable time here!
We liked the selection at Norfolk Wholesale, though when it came time to get everything together to plan for our wedding, we weren't pleased with the service we received. We did purchase my wedding bouquet and Hubby's boutonniere from them, but not everything else. Pro - Good selection, plentiful. Bad - Service, poor.
I can't say enough positive things about this botanical garden. It is absolutely beautiful. For our wedding, we rented the Rotunda and the Perennial Garden (both are pretty much right next to each other) and it was such a great deal if you're looking for a venue for an outdoor wedding and need a "rain plan". Since it didn't rain, people used The Rotunda as a gathering spot (plus it had A/C, it was 88 degrees on our wedding day) before going outside for the wedding at the Perennial Garden. The entire area for the wedding was picturesque. The staff were wonderful and extremely helpful when planning for the big day. Besides using the garden for a wedding/special event, the entire garden is a great place to walk around and photograph.
We were very pleased with our experience using a lawyer for the first time to help us with a speeding ticket. We went in, paid our fee (which wasn't unreasonable...it was the same amount we would've paid for the ticket anyway, with a little extra), a lawyer from their team went to court in my absence (I was super pregnant at the time) and somehow made my 15mph over the speed limit (or more, I can't remember) ticket disappear! Well, not really, but my case was dropped. We are ever so grateful because paying the extra cost for getting a lawyer saved us money in the long run regarding car insurance costs. Kudos!
We rented a townhome in this complex for a short period of time (almost one year) and loved where we lived before we moved away. The townhomes there are a good size and were in great shape at the time we lived there. Most townhomes in the complex are two story, but they also have 3 story townhomes in the complex as well. The staff who maintain the complex are amazing. They are so friendly and care very much about the community. If you're looking to rent a townhome in Apex, I would recommend this complex.
We visit North Hills mainly for the experience. They have great shops, good dining selection (we love Fox and Hound), and is a great place to walk around. We like to visit Ben and Jerry's and have our little one walk around the green area/open space.
Morrisville Outlet mall is a good place to visit and shop when you want to escape the crowds. Our favorite place to visit while there is the Carter's store. We also like to visit the "as seen on TV" store to check out quirky items that I wouldn't call the 800-number to buy it from TV, since I'd rather see it and buy it in person
I love coming here for gelato. They are reasonably priced, the place is pretty, and it couldn't be in a better spot in Southpoint. I'd recommend it!
There are lots of educational toys and other toys that promote imaginary play in this store. They also have a great selection of developmental toys for babies.
