We are planning a last minute trip to Havelock North Carolina for DH Aunt's 100th Birthday.

Due to other obligations we will only have about 2 weeks including travel time from Kansas City.

We will probably leave August 9th and the party is the 20th.

Any suggestions on things we should see/do or places to stay while their or on the way?

We don't actually have to go straight there so any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks!
Ron & Shirley

You will not be far from the beach and also should make a stop in the mountains (Great Smokey Mtns.).


Happy Trails!!

Plan on spending a night or two in Fancy Gap, VA. It's a few miles North of Mt. Airy, NC, otherwise known as Mayberry from the Andy Griffith show. It's a beautiful campground near the blueridge parkway, antique shops, and good Southern cooking. Mt. Airy is a neat little town to visit.
Another good place to spend the night is Smithfield KOA in NC. There is an outlet mall near by and a neat store called JR's. It has all kinds of cool stuff, most notable is one of the world's largest cigar humidor. It's located at exit 97 off I-95

If your route takes you thru Lexington, KY, I would strongly suggest a stop and visit to the Kentucky Horse Park and campground.

There's a nice National Forest Campground called Nuese River that has electric hookups and is right on the Nuese River.

If you are interested in history, Tryon's Palace is in New Bern (colonial governor's mansion) plus other historic buildings to tour in that immediate location. In New Bern you can see the pharmacy that invented Pepsi. Also -North Carolina has a lot of historic sites run extremely well by the State. Google search the NC state history sites.

If a visit to the Outer Banks has any appeal, its about an hours drive from Havelock to the Cedar Island/Ocracoke ferry. I'll be glad to provide more detail about the area if you're interested.

Mayberry campground in Mt.Airy is nice and the owners are very friendly and helpful.He is a desendant of the original Siamase twins and is happy to tell you all about them! Its a short drive to downtown to have a porkchop sandwhich at Snappy Lunch,have a hair cut at Floyd's barber shop and right next door to FLoyds is Opie's Candy shop. At the other end of Main St. there is a museum and several neat shops on both side of Main St. You can also go on a tour of the town in a replica of the squad car from Andy Griffith show. And while in Havelock a trip to New Bern is a must,its a nice quaint historical town and we are right proud of it!
Oh and east of Havelock is the beach,go cross the bridge from Morehead City,take a left and go until the road ends at Fort Macon-a neat place to tour,they also have beach access and rest rooms.
