All of these are fun for groups or for you to explore on your own, so be sure to check them out the next time you’re in town.

1897 Poe House

The 1897 Poe House was the home to the Poe family. Although he shares the same name with the author Edgar Allan Poe, he was only a local businessman. Here, you can see how this family lived as well as learn about the life that was occurring during the late 1800s, from children’s roles to technology and more.

Gillis Hill Farms

Gillis Hill Farms is open to the public and gives you a chance to explore an entertaining and educational look at life on the farm. Perfect for those with little ones, you’ll enjoy learning about how the family has owned and operated the farm for more than 200 years, has changed the crops grown, and how they raise their animals.

Cape Fear River Trail

Whether walking, riding a bike, or jogging, this 10-foot-wide path winds for more than five miles and includes a variety of plants and trees along with marsh and wetlands. Throughout your trip to Cape Fear River Trail, you can become immersed in signage that explains local wildlife, as this area is home to more than 150 specifics of birds, lizards, turtles, deer and more.

Airborne and Special Operations Museum

The Airborne and Special Operations Museum is free and allows you to experience a variety of history and learning excursions. You can also enjoy a simulator, which lets you experience one of two different tasks and see what it’s like to be in the air during warfare. You can also experience the gift shop and see the impact this location has on our veterans.
