It was one of the most exciting things I've done. . Skydive Carolina was amazing along with the tandem jumpers, they really made the whole experience one that I will never forget and so glad we went to them for our first jump.. At first I was hesitant to buy the video and photo package but so glad that I did, this is something you will want to have for future enjoyment. One word sums up the experience at Skydive Carolina - AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chester County Historical Museum

Reviewed By Trafcon - Hillsboro, Oregon

I was driving though this town and wanted to get recommendations for restaurants. I was pleasantly surprised by the lady working in the building. She admitted up front that she was new but she was a local so answered most of my questions. The building was an old bank building and had a load of pictures and memorabilia on the walls. Nice little town and very hospitable hostess.

Olde English District

Reviewed By thetravelingjen - Raleigh, North Carolina

The Olde English District is nice for antiquing and for a brief weekend getaway-- but be forewarned that many shops (and some restaurants) are closed for the entirety of the weekend. I would suggest a drop through some of the District, but don't expect it to fill up your entire day (unless you linger very, very slowly).

My husband and I decided to visit on a whim one Sunday afternoon. We really didn't know what to expect but man I was blown away. It is a very small place in the middle of nowhere, so if you blink you might miss it. I was exposed to Fishing Creek at a Farmer's Market and fell in love. The chevre was so good. I have tried the Spiderbite, Orange Dreamsicle, and the Black Forest. My favorite so far is the Spiderbite because I like spicy things. When you get to the creamery, they have a glass window so you can look in and watch what is happening. Their icecream is pretty good as well and I definitely want to try different flavors. Support our local businesses and eat local :)
