Art & Shopping Tour
Start your tour and shopping at the renowned Bob Timberlake Gallery. The gallery showcases Bob Timberlake’s original artwork, reproductions and personal memorabilia, as well the popular home furnishings collection.
Begin your day early with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and a delicious pastry at the Riverwood Coffee Shop located in the gallery. Come as early as you’d like – before the gallery opens – as the coffee shop starts their day at 7am.
Missions Pottery offers pottery and other handmade items. You’ll also want to visit the many antique shops along Main Street.
At Dempsey’s Place, his realistic style brings our local Davidson County history and personalities to life, as well as the Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina’s Outer Banks and Charleston! His painstaking attention to detail plus a hidden hummingbird in each painting are Dempsey’s trademarks.
NASCAR team owner Richard Childress and one of America’s most award winning winemakers, Mark Friszolowski have teamed to build of one of NC’s most visited wineries, Childress Vineyards.
Designed like an Italian Renaissance Tuscan villa, the winery sits atop some of the most gorgeous grounds in North Carolina and offers scenery you never thought you would find.
Make your next stop Weathervane Winery and Junius Lindsay Vineyards. Just 15 minutes up Hwy 52 N, each is special in its own way. Weathervane offers a relaxing atmosphere with a variety of award winning wines in the tasting room and Junius Lindsay features Lexington’s only outside tasting room. Next head down 150 to Native Vines Winery, the first Native American Indian owned winery.
After visiting the wineries, stop by Tastings Wine & Beer.
See the wide selection of wines, and if wine doesn’t suit you, Tastings has a wide selection of specialty beers.
Prepare to have a designated driver or split the Wine Trail Tour up into two days – each winery offers several varieties – one sure to suit your palate.
Since 1940, Conrad & Hinkle Food Market has been serving the folks in Lexington with some of the best, most tasty pimento cheese around. This is a good old southern taste of Lexington you certainly don’t want to miss!
After you get your homemade pimento cheese, walk across Main Street to The Candy Factory for good old-fashioned “Red Bird” peppermint candy made by Piedmont Candy Company right here in Lexington. The peppermint candy sticks and puffs are a mainstay, but these days when you walk in the door, your nose will be instantly drawn to the wonderful aroma of homemade, fresh fudge.
When you visit Mrs. Hanes Moravian Cookies all of your senses come alive! This family owned Davidson County business is truly one of a kind.
And you’ll want to try several of the barbecue restaurants and leave room for banana pudding or banana split!
