Just an hour from the Triangle, you’ll find a town that’s "rural renaissance" done right. Welcome to Saxapahaw, NC: a tiny town that shines year-round with scenic views, industrial-chic vibes and hyper-local food—but the place REALLY comes alive in the summer when nature conditions are peak and their free weekly festivals are in full swing. Pack a bag, spend the weekend (hope you like sleeping in a renovated school bus!) and soon you’ll see why Saxapahaw is quickly becoming NC’s newest cultural and culinary destination—it’s got Asheville vibes, minus the Asheville drive.
