The YMCA of Greater High Point operates to impart better health on bodies and minds with myriad programs aimed at adults, youngsters, and senior citizens alike. Both the Hartley Drive YMCA and the Grubb YMCA house fitness centers are packed with ample exercise machinery, from Cybex strength-training equipment to PreCor ellipticals and treadmills, helping patrons aged 12 and older to seize a healthy physique without the hassle of hugging a bodybuilder. For camaraderie-based fitness, Grubb and Hartley host group exercise classes that corral clients of all stripes or cater specifically to kids or seniors. The Hartley gym's facilities further nurture fitness endeavors with an indoor track, two gymnasiums, four racquetball courts, and an indoor 25-meter swimming pool. After a solo or relative-supported workout, guests can hit the on-site locker rooms to freshen up or scoop too-little ones and thumb-sucking spouses from the Child Watch childcare center.

Inside Castle McCulloch’s nigh-impenetrable walls, the fire-spinning, belly-dancing revelry of Castle Carnevale takes place every year. Kings, queens, court jesters, and spitting images of Calvin Coolidge line the drawbridge to adorn guests of the bacchanal ball with free masks, while fireworks illuminate the festival grounds and guide adventurous souls through the merriment of the Mardi Gras of the Carolinas. Creative Carnevale patrons can showcase skills at craft tables or earn costume-contest awards for best traditional Venetian outfit, most provocative, and most likely to stand out at a crossword convention.
Deborah Mitchell doesn't mind getting her hands dirty—or sharing her space with a few caterpillars. The master gardener curates a verdant collection of more than 150 medicinal and culinary herbs, from kitchen staples such as rosemary and oregano to hard-to-find varieties. In addition to a dozen types of mint and 15 varieties of basil, she also nurtures bedding plants, heirloom tomatoes, and flowering perennials. Her staff relies on organic fertilizers to nourish everything in the shop, and when necessary, they choose organic or self-grown pesticides. FlowerPeddler also stocks herbal and fragrant soaps in scents ranging from cotton blossom to dirt. All soaps are handmade with a vegetable-based glycerin rather than fats distilled from balloon animals.
