LAKE NORMAN VOLUME 10—ISSUE 1 45 THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — CHARLOTTE | VOLUME 2 — ISSUE 1 ALLISON BOOKKEEPING & TAX SERVICE • ACCOUNTING • REPORTS • PAYROLLS Office: 704.788.8232 Fax: 704.788.7794 48 Manor Avenue, SW Concord, NC 28025 The Depot at Gibson Mill claims to offer the "Best Crap in the South." Named after local roads, the aisles are filled with unique finds from more than 600 vendors. After browsing, be sure to refuel at Ellie's Diner inside The Depot. Ruffin's Roost is brimming with history – for starters, it is located inside a 100-year-old harness shop. Ruffin's Roost specializes in antiques, urban farmhouse, cottage chic décor and vintage clothing all tucked together inside the big white barn. Take the backroad for a true pickin' experience. Getting lost on a rural road will land you at Cline's Country Antiques (Mt. Pleasant), where a variety of treasures cover the Carolina countryside. The Avett Brothers, Grammy-nominated Americana band from Concord, filmed a music video for the hit "February Seven" at the sprawling antique yard. Culture is alive and well in Cabarrus. Browse in an art gallery and catch a theatre performance within two city blocks on the quaint streets of downtown Concord. For an old fashioned movie experience go to GEM Theatre. Eat with locals at Union Street Bistro, Gianni's Trattoria, and Carm's Cafe. For dessert grab a cone of homemade ice cream at Cabarrus Creamery. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Cabarrus County Historic Courthouse is home to the Davis Theater and The Galleries. See a show at The Davis with upcoming performances including The Barefoot Movement, Martha Redbone Roots Project and The Hillbenders. Make a pit stop for the night at some of the best hotel experiences in the region. Adults indulge at Embassy Suites Charlotte-Concord Golf Resort & Spa with time at the spa or hitting the green for 18-holes at the Rocky River Golf Club. The premier public course is ranked in the top 100 golf courses in North Carolina. Afterwards, enjoy dinner at Rocky River Grille. The kid in everyone comes out at the Great Wolf Lodge. The largest indoor water park/ hotel in the Carolinas is in its own category with pools and water slides, plus a massive water fort tree house with a 1,000-gallon tipping bucket. Go ice skating at The Speedpark (Concord Mills until January 15, 2018). Skate on more than 4,200 square feet of real ice for an old fashioned day of fun (check park for schedule). Visit the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame, operated by music pioneer Eddie Ray featuring exhibits from musicians, producers, music executives and writers from North Carolina. To cap off a memorable day, stop and relax over dinner at science-themed Restaurant Forty-Six (Kannapolis), located across from the North Carolina Research Campus.
