Take the kids for a ride on the famous Ridge Runner mini train, play some putt-putt or catch a ball game! We’re home to the closest and — dare we say — most spirited baseball rivalry in the country.

That’s only the beginning of our sporty side. Golf, soccer, bowling, fishing, racing. You name it; we’ve got it. Baseball to paintball, fairway to speedway — let’s play!
In the mood for some retail therapy? Browse chic Appalachian antiques and mountain primitives or pick up a handcrafted piece from one of our local galleries. For variety, swing through the gift shops, where you can find one-of-a-kind wares or cherished keepsakes. Our specialty shops cater to your every whim, whether it’s bikes, attire, jewelry, outdoor gear, records or yarn you’re looking for (and more).
