Huffman Vineyards

Reviewed By RoverToad - Wilmington, North Carolina

If you enjoy wine, this is a must do stop if you are anywhere near. It is what you want to see from a small family owned vineyard. The mother is behind the counter, the brother is bottling wine, and the daughter is helping you sample their wines. The atmosphere is inviting with hand painted floors that resemble slate (which mother painted) and a store with a nice selection of merchandise. For $5, you can sample ten wines. If you are visiting the area, you need to try the Muscadine wines. Yes they are sweet, but give yourself a chance to fall in love with something really Southern. Want to stop by and enjoy a glass of their wine under the shade trees?

Veterans Memorial Jacksonville NC

Reviewed By hrguy815 - North Carolina

Whether you are local or from out of town, you should make the time to go see this memorial. It's beautiful and quiet. You will also find the Montford Point Marines, Beirut and 9/11 Memorials on the same grounds. Everything is easy to get to and is accessible for people in wheelchairs, scooters and/or families with strollers.

Mike's Farm

Reviewed By retiree2 - North Carolina

We went with a group from the county parks and recreation program and were pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. This is no small operation. There were about 2000 people going through the facility the Monday night that we were there for the dinner/Christmas light hayride. The family style dinner was excellent and plentiful and the hayride was spectacular. Everything was well run accept for the two restrooms outside of the restaurant. We traveled over 3 hours in a van and had to use restrooms that only had two toilets for everyone to use and the toilets were such that when the outside door of the restroom was opened you were sitting totally exposed to those passing by. Outside of that, everything was great. The lights are not to be missed.

This is a really neat tour, a lot of information that was very interesting. Person giving the tour and presentation knew the information well. Probably wouldn’t be interesting for young children but our teenager though got it was cool.

DM Outdoors

Do you like horses? Come horseback riding with us! We promise it won't be one of those rides where you go to a big stable & ride in a line for a half hour with people walking with you. . . We'll take you real trail riding. Just you in control. Walking, trotting, cantering... you're in control to ride however you want.

DM Outdoors is a fantastic place to go for an authentic trail ride on horseback. The website tells no lies about what you are getting ready to experience. You can truly ride how you choose, and pointers are given to less experienced riders in order to keep them safe and help them better understand the horse they are on. Within the first few minutes on the trail, my daughter and I had done more than all the years of horse camp I paid for my daughter to attend. You do everything from walk to gallop to splashing through the water. The scenery is beautiful and if your experience is anything like that of my daughter and I, you are guaranteed to be grinning ear to ear the entire time. I also lost a very expensive watch during the ride and the owner and his family were nice enough to ride back through the trail. Not only did they find the watch, they brought it back to me, which speaks highly of their honesty. We definitely recommend DM Outdoors to anyone looking for a great time and we plan on going back for more. Thank you for giving my daughter and I an awesome day!

From very satisfied customers,

What a surprise !. My husband and I truly enjoyed the Lynwood Park Zoo experience. Make sure you wear comfortable rugged shoes to walk through and explore. A nice place to bring visiting relatives who love animals .
