  • Kersey Valley
    Kersey Valley offers a range of family fun for everyone. Its laser tag course plunges competitors into military-style battles through more than 20 different firefight scenarios across 55 acres of battlefields. Lasers modeled after MP5 submachine guns fire over 1,000 feet during assassination missions or airstrike missions when the staff careens through the air on ziplines while trying to pick players off. The zipline adventure tours prove equally thrilling for Kersey Valley visitors, who glide through the skies across 14 legs of sail-ways that stretch between 200 and 800 feet per leg. Some first-time riders prefer to stretch their aerial time to the max by zipping more than 800 feet long in one run. Those who prefer to keep their amusements more grounded may challenge themselves with themed escape rooms or frolic through seasonal, family-themed adventures, including the Maize Adventure and the Kersey Valley Spookywoods.

  • Southern Women’s Show - Charlotte
    Being a woman means something different to everyone, and summing up the shared experience in a single event seems like an impossibility. Fortunately, "impossible" is meaningless to the organizers of the Southern Women's Show. Every year, the annual event visits the Queen City, bringing with it unique boutiques, activities, and special guests that capture the essence of being a woman. Meet Chris Solues from The Bachelor and Whitney Way Thore from TLC's My Big Fat Fabulous Life on-site, and elsewhere, guests can snack on southern staples including pimento cheese, discuss home projects with DIY makers, and get a fitting from one of the show's bra experts. There are also plenty of features including the Food Lion Kitchen Stage, a mother-daughter Lookalike contest, and fashion shows filled with the latest trends.

  • Historic Rosedale
    Archibald Frew got the last laugh. When he built the home now known as Rosedale, the neighbors called it "Frew's Folly." The reasons were unclear—some people suspect it was the chrome yellow trim, others think that his neighbors were just comic geniuses—but whatever the reasons, they were wrong. The historic plantation and southern garden still stands, the last piece of the 919-acre plantation on which it once stood. Now it serves as a beautiful example of Federal period architecture, offers eye-opening glimpses at history through its tours, and hosts weddings and other events.
