5 Things To Do This Weekend

Take a look to see what’s going on in North Carolina this weekend:

Local Flavors of Noda Food Tour


For all you gourmets out there, don’t miss the Noda Food Tour this Saturday in Charlotte’s Historic Art District. There you will find specialties from six locally owned culinary establishments including gastropubs, brewpubs, and delis. Hear first-hand from the key players at each restaurant, while enjoying the tastings and taking in the historic scenery of the neighborhood.

Beauty and the Beast

Score romance points with your significant other by taking them to see a “tale as old as time” at the North Carolina Theatre. Filled with an amazing cast, extravagant costumes, and mesmerizing sets, this production will be sure to make for an enchanted evening. North Carolina Theatre is located at the Duke Energy Center in Raleigh, NC.

Transylvania County 

Brevard is home to hundreds of waterfalls, many of which spill over the craggy rock formation of Transylvania County. From mountain biking to paddle boarding, there are very few limits as to what is available on the 500,000 acres that comprise the surrounding Pisgah National Forest. 

Visit a Lighthouse

If you happen to be visiting the Outer Banks this weekend, you should check out the iconic Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Its 210-foot height makes it the tallest brick lighthouse structure in the United States. You can find it on Hatteras Island, off of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.  

Emerald Point Water Park

Don’t let this 90-degree weather keep you indoors! Emerald Point Wet N’ Wild has over 36 rides and attractions, so there’s something for everyone in the family to enjoy. Ride down amazing slides like the Double Barrel Blast or the new Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror, which takes you soaring to dizzying heights on back-to-back vertical banks all against a backdrop of total darkness and visual effects. Or just take it easy and relax on the slow-moving Lazy River. The park is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends.
