    My wife and I have been going to Davidson Cummunity Players performances for several years and Mamma Mia was the best performance by far! Great cast and the Duke Family Performance Hall is outstanding. Good job Community Players!!

    Enjoyed a nice walk here on the paved trail. Looks to be a nice bike riding place as well and there were even some dirt paths for mountain bikers. I will definitely return to this park. It was quiet and relaxing. There are picnic tables available and also benches along the trail.

    Visited Davidson on a trip to the lakes, unfortunately the town had little to offer but the College campus was beautiful and we enjoyed a 30 minute stroll around.

    The buildings so reminded me of Boston being dated just after the civil war

    We were vacationing in Davidson and decided to go to a women's basketball game in Belk Arena.
    We like this venue because it is just the right size of facility for this college. Seats are comfortable with a back on each seat if you want to use it. Arena is easy to find and there is ample parking, usually at no cost. Arena is not that old and the college keeps it in excellent condition. The men's restroom is large (don't know about the women's?).

    Last night, we went to the Armour Street Theater to see 'The Complete Works of William Shakespeare - Abridged' ... a comedy. We enjoyed it very much.
    Earlier this spring, we went to this theater to see 'Benedictions' and also enjoyed that production.
    We vacation in this area and each year we make a point to try to go to as many of the productions at this theater that we can ... we ALWAYS enjoy the plays and live theatre !

    This is a nice little neighborhood park easily accessible from Griffith Street in Davidson. There is plenty of street parking and there is also a small parking lot by the backside of the park. It's a nice place to take the dogs for a walk, take a stroll or even take a jog around the large pond.

    This gallery has a lot of beautiful wall art but I specifically came into the gallery to check out the Muro Jewelry I've seen in the window. The woman who was working in the gallery was helpful but not pressuring. I did end up purchasing a unique necklace. I love it and will certainly be back in the future!

    We subscribe yearly and like the variety-- from drama to old favorites to new works. Always a musical in the summer and a comedy - both at Duke Performance Hall at Davidson College. The rest of the shows are at Armour Street Theater. They often add performances to meet demand, as the venue is small. Seats are raised so that all can see. Seats are reserved, so you know where you will be.

    When planning a week at Lake Norman with our grown children, we knew we wanted to rent stand up paddle boards for several days. The folks at Aloha Paddle Sports could not have been more helpful! The owner delivered the boards to the house and then picked them up at the end of our visit. The price was great and included delivery & pick up. The boards & paddles were in great condition and we all had a great time using them!
    We absolutely recommend Aloha Paddle and will use them on our future visits!

    This store is an absolute gem! They have the most unique items to buy for yourself or gifts. All the ladies that work here are delightful. I could spend several hours browsing in this store. I always will go here when I visit Davidson.

    With Covid shutdowns, it was so nice to finally be able to go to a movie theater. This little place is so cute and cozy. Has 4 theaters with super comfy plush chairs and cocktail tables. We ordered cocktails and popcorn when we arrived and then proceeded to our theater to see Cruella. I had no idea it was like a lounge set up. What a great surprise! Made the awesome movie even more enjoyable. The manager and staff were so warm and welcoming.

    My husband surprised me with a visit to this really adorable market that offers vintage and re-purposed as well as newer pieces of home decor and furniture.
    I loved how they were playing Christmas music and it just felt wonderful walking around and looking at beautiful things! I Purchased a lovely handmade Christmas ornament too.
    I’ll definitely go back to shop again!

    This store has a wide selection of jewelry, along with pottery and glass dishes, vases, mugs, etc. There are unique wood and metal pieces too. Each artist has their works displayed on beautiful tables, benches and cabinets.

    The selection of gifts range from elegant to rustic to whimsical. My last trip there I shopped for myself - I bought a beautiful mug by Meghan Bernard that I love to use for my morning coffee.

    This wonderful little gem is a little hard to find, and when I got there at 11:30 on a Tuesday I couldn’t find a parking place right away. But the effort is worth it for the special treasures you may find. I recommend it.

    So if you like, love, or admire chocolate then this is the place to visit. They have just about any type of truffle you can imagine. This is a no brainer to rate....come get some chocolates! You will regret it if you don't!
