They have a fence in the play yard for the kids equipped with jungle gyms and swings. There are three movie theaters (Camike 4, Carolina which is downown, and Marquee Mimosa which is 25 minutes away in Morganton). Marquee Mimosa tends to be less crowded and the concessions are cheaper.
If you are looking for a relaxing night out of music and great atmosphere that is very elegant go to the 859 Café. You can request songs on Saturday nights and although this one will cost you a little more it’s worth it.
