It would be hard to pick a more fitting site for the North Carolina Transportation Museum. At one time, its web of train tracks and buildings served as the largest servicing facility for Southern Railway Company's steam locomotives. Today, it performs a different service: preserving an authentic slice of locomotive history, with some early planes and cars thrown in for good measure.

  • Size: a 57-acre site covered in diesel train engines, steam train engines, and interactive exhibits devoted to transportation
  • Permanent Mainstay: Graham County Railroad #1925, a steam locomotive from 1925 that was commonly used on logging railroads
  • Crown Jewel: a narrated, 25-minute train ride of the site, during which guests are pulled in passenger cars by an antique diesel engine
  • Eye Catcher: Visits begin at theBarber Junction Visitor Center, which resides in an authentic train depot from 1898
  • Don't Miss: Some of the non-train relics on display, including a 1929 Model AA Fire Truck and a full-size replica of the Wright Flyer
  • Special Programs: behind-the-scenes tours, the chance to operate a real steam engine, and birthday parties held in a caboose
  • Pro Tip: It takes about three hours to see all the exhibits and ride the train

Not every shot at Crescent Golf Club is created equal. Though the usual requirements of distance, accuracy, and guts are necessary to score well throughout the 18-hole course, a few shots stand out and may even haunt players well after their round is over. On No. 8?a par 3?tee shots must sail over a pond before alighting on a shallow green, leaving little room for error. On the par 4 16th, meanwhile, a tricky approach onto an elevated green can provide some drama as competitors fight to sink shots without resorting to wizardry. If these holes trip players up, a 7-acre driving range rubs shoulders with the course near the clubhouse, providing plenty of opportunity for them to hone their swings in preparation for their next bout with the course.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,822 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 73.1 from the back tees * Course slope of 130 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole

Lovingly tended by proprietors and master winemakers Tommy and Amie Baudoin, the idyllic fields of Morgan Ridge Vineyards yield delicious, fruity batches of handcrafted vino. Six varieties of grapes sprout from the fertile grounds, including classics such as chardonnay and merlot and rarer fruits such as sangiovese and seyval blanc. Within the newly built winery, stout oak barrels house a harvest of 1,500 cases of wine per year, and a tasting room welcomes guests with warm, comfortable hospitality. Regular tours explore the vineyard’s rolling hills and neat rows of plants before retiring to the tasting room, where patrons sample the fruits of the Baudoin's labor by drinking their wines and trying on their work gloves.

Kids' feet rarely touch the ground at Bounce City Salisbury. Most of the 8,000-square-foot space has been taken over by inflatable play structures: bounce houses, a challenging obstacle course, and towering slides. Kids 13 and under scamper around in socked feet, testing the laws of gravity in the bouncers and taking turns on the animal-shaped giddy-up rides. Meanwhile, toddlers play in their own separate area, which boasts age-appropriate toys like jumbo blocks and trikes, while grown-ups can relax and read a book or surf the free Wi-Fi as they recline in one of the comfy chairs in the parents' lounge.

Since 1936, the historic Gem Theatre has moved movie lovers to laughter and tears with films in an elegant, comfortable single-screen vintage theater. Peruse current showtimes and choose a first-run film, which may include a romantic romp, a superhero adventure, an independent feature, or Casablanca II: Electric Boogaloo. Guests pick up their sodas and popcorn at the concessions stand in the carpeted lobby, whose ornate table lamps cast soft light on potted plants and flowers. In the red and gold 916-seat amphitheater, upholstered floor seats beckon audience members and balcony perches provide a sky-high view behind marbled wood rails. Before the film, guests watch wrought-iron vines curl around colorful birds in sculptures flanking the screen. Sumptuous gold curtains hide the big screen until showtime, allowing staff members to finish reenacting each film’s climactic scene in private.
