Better Lawn Care in Salisbury
Not quite Mayberry, but far from the bustle of big-city Charlotte, Salisbury, N.C., lets its residents enjoy the tranquility of a small town while staying busy with activities and adventures right in their own backyards.
While today it is within the Charlotte metropolitan area, this Rowan County city of about 35,000 is 44 miles northeast of the big city and maintains its distinct identity — as it should, given its rich history. It is the longest continuously occupied Colonial town in western North Carolina and keeps that heritage alive with five local historic districts.
For families looking for an inexpensive outdoors day, Rowan County boasts several parks, each with their own personality. Dunn’s Mountain Park offers lots of trails to get out on to hike and enjoy the beautiful scenic views. With 83 acres, this protected park is a treasure for birders, photographers, and hikers. Another option for outdoor-lovers is the park at High Rock Lake, the second largest lake in North Carolina. Here boaters and fishermen can find just what they need for the perfect outdoors day.
One of the best ways to enjoy North Carolina’s temperate weather is visiting one of several produce farms that let people pick their own fresh treats and learn a little more about where their food comes from. For instance, at Patterson Farm just up the road in Ulla, visitors can pick out the perfect pumpkin as well as get enough strawberries for jam and pie. This family-friendly farm features 200 acres of tomatoes, poinsettias, muscadines, and peppers plus 45 acres of strawberries. There is also a petting zoo and fun seasonal events.
For a little less outdoorsy day, downtown offers a myriad of shopping options, historical sites, and restaurants sure to satisfy anyone’s taste buds. History buffs will not want to miss the Hall House Museum that tells the story of Dr. Josephus Hall and his family. There is even a cannon used in Salisbury’s Civil War Prison. Another historical stop is the Rowan Museum found in the 1854 courthouse. With pre-Civil War architecture to admire, visitors can learn all about Rowan County’s history with interesting displays and interpretive exhibits. While downtown, folks should not miss the nationally recognized mural on Fisher Street titled “Crossroads: Past Into Present.” Painted by Cynvia Arthur Rankin, this amazing piece of civic art features 100 people in 1900 garb as though history has come to life on the city's sidewalks.
Train-lovers can take advantage of Salisbury’s place as one of nine Amtrak stops in North Carolina. The station has been historically renovated and has an attendant on duty to answer all those questions about trains and traveling the tracks. For those who are getting out of town on the train, they can buy tickets here even if the window is not open.
