Creeping across a 5-acre swath of the Haw River Valley, 16 varieties of grapevines sprout from fertile, sandy soil, twisting their leafy arms around trellises and soaking in the lush, grape-growing climate. Benjamin's artisan enophiles hand pluck each of the muscadine, french, and hybrid grapes that blanket this vineyard. The grapes are escorted into the afterlife inside fermenting barrels where they live on as red and white wines for every taste—from dry dinner varietals and sweet country classics to seasonal bouquets. The whole creative process is observed by spectating visitors who wind through the idyllic facilities on self-guided tours—often including picnics on the winery’s covered porch, or perusals of of local art at the gift shop.
As an ecofriendly facility, Benjamin Vineyards & Winery employs sustainable practices, such as composting agricultural products, recycling bottles and other reusables, and growing plants with nightly bedtime reading instead of pesticides.
While visits to Beshel Chiropractic Center could easily be quite brisk—Doctors of Chiropractic John and Tim Beshel can assuage most aches and pains with just a few expert adjustments —this isn't the case. Rather than simply treating patients and sending them on their way, the team of brothers takes the time to educate them about causes of their ailments, giving them greater insight into the effects of gentle, low-force adjusting techniques. To guide these adjustments, the doctors conduct thorough exams and reviews of medical history, which, along with digital x-rays and mind readings, paint a complete picture of each patient and the chiropractic treatment best suited to their complaints.

Though the 18 holes at Quarry Hills Country Club are set among a gentle bend in the Haw River, golfers may never even see the tributary's waters during a round. That's because designer Ellis Maples, when he oversaw construction of the course in 1969, left intact the dense pinewood forests that surround each fairway and green. That's not to say the course lacks water hazards. A series of small lakes pepper the course along, and the large Piedmont Crescent Lake sits as a focal point of the par 70 course. Players who lose their balls to the lake's depths can find solace at the 16,000-square-foot clubhouse, sipping glasses of ice water in a fit of waterthirsty revenge.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 70 course * Total length of 6,617 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 72.1 from the back tees * Course slope of 135 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole * Proper golf attire required * Scorecard
