Nature Lovers

At the top of the list is Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, a beautiful garden with an Orchid Conservatory; it’s a garden for all seasons. Also make sure to visit The Schiele Museum; their new planetarium is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Your visit to Gaston County won’t be complete without a trip to Crowders Mountain State Park. Enjoy the beautiful views on your hike to the top. Check out the Carolina Thread Trail too if hiking is your thing. Hop on the trail and enjoy the beautiful outdoors; there are many options throughout the county. Before you leave, grab a keepsake at Ford Feed and Seed and walk over to Tequila’s, Lily’s or Life of Pi for a bite to eat. Sit outside and enjoy.
