Agent Picks

Eno River State Park

Eno River State Park gives locals a spot to soak in the great outdoors. In addition to traversing the 30 miles of trails that meander throughout 4,200 acres, locals also flock to the park on July 4th for its annual Festival for the Eno.

Children's Museum of Life and Science

This 84-acre indoor/outdoor museum will delight little explorers (and their grownups, too). Experiments, ropes courses, and a butterfly house are just some of the exciting adventures that await. Don't forget to travel down the Dinosaur Trail. RAWR!


Don't ask for the skinny on the barbecue sauce at PICNIC: it's a family recipe. Wood-cooked pork comes from right up the road in Bahama, provided by a pig farmer who's also a partner in the business.
