I cannot forget the people who love me
Yeah I can be myself here in this small town
And people let me be just what I want to be."
"Small Town" by John (Cougar) Mellancamp
Here's a link to a nice (if slightly condescending) little article written about my town in the NEW YORK TIMES Travel Section, recently! I think most of us who live here have always thought it's a pretty hip, pretty cool place to live and we really don't need any confirmation from New Yorkers, but it's still kinda cool!
Have we hit the big time?
If, after reading this, you decide you'd like to visit, let me know! We have lots of great restaurants, bars and shopping, but it still has a small town atmosphere. I love that almost anywhere I go I see someone I know. Want to see more? Okayyyy.....
|The USS North Carolina, permanently docked on the far side of the river.|
|Tons of old homes - some dating back to the late 1700's.|
|Beautiful holiday decorations all over downtown, not just here on the riverfront.|
|And what would an old town be without the old cemeteries? This one has gravestones from the 1700's.|
