This Tanger is just like all the rest. Mainly the same stores as the other Tangers. No special stores and a good bit of the stores are small. One bad thing about the Tangers is PEOPLE SMOKE outside and you have to walk right in the smoke. Since second hand smoke is deadly you are just killing yourself and your kids by shopping at the Tangers. They should ban smoking from the property. Not a lot of places to eat at this Tanger.

The Winery at Iron Gate Farm

Reviewed By tammiew101416 - Garner, North Carolina

We have been to this vineyard twice now. Really enjoyed this last visit. They were extremely busy the day we went, but we were acknowledged and given a tour while we waited to do a tasting. It was hard to pick which bottle of wine to purchase because everything we tasted was excellent. They also give you a good enough amount to actually taste.

Mebane Train Layout

Reviewed By Columbus_OhioRandy51 - Columbus, Ohio

The train layout is excellently done. The docent railroad men are very knowledgeable and are great with kids. The case has a clear glass wall and there are elevated viewing areas for the kids. What is also nice is that there is a nice community playground right outside the door so that is siblings get bored while others are engrossed, the bored ones can go outside to play.

Lake Michael Park

Reviewed By Nighthawkasl - USA

My wife and I are building a house near this lake and have gone there several times. Our last visit I took along my 16 year old son and rented a utility boat. Four dollars to rent a boat and zero cost for entry fee sounds great.

We spent the next three hours exploring a long but very narrow lake. We saw a few great blue herons and several geese. Everyone we encountered had a friendly wave or smile. We will definitely return and do again with our fishing poles as that is the main activity here.

My greatest moment of our trip is my son saying wow I did not even look at my phone for the last three hours. My advice to the park however is to put a winch on a pole to help bring the boats out of the water. You already have the poles and chain a simple winch would make it easier for all involved.

On July 23rd, I was selected for The Local Author Visit at The Mebane Library. I was given a table, a chair and decorated it in RED & WHITE. My book signing was across from the library check out. I sold 25 copies of my children's book, "One Day". On this Saturday, the heat index was 101...It was VERY cool in the library. Jane H.

The Elegant Relic & Hen Feathers

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

This place in Mebane is advertised under antiques but it really isn't an antique store. The ground floor (Elegant Relic) has some vintage and antique furnishing but it seems most of the stuff is made from reclaimed wood. The upstairs (Hen Feathers) is a fashion boutique and jewelry. For what it is I enjoyed walking through the place but I was disappointed we made the drive thinking it was an antique store. It's worth a stop if you are in the area.

I love to go into Quirks Antiques. The items on display are as they describe, " Weird Stuff You Want". I purchased an antique rocker during Dogwood Festival. I had the chair reupholstered and had the springs redone. It now is in my Great room in Mebane. Jane H.

Brick Alley Antiques

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

This antique store has a lot of nice things but nothing that makes it stand out from the others. They didn't have many collectibles at all but I did find a large jug I've been looking for. If you are in the area it is worth stopping for.
