 Road Trip! Those were two of my favorite words when I was in college. The destination was almost unimportant. It was the journey that mattered! There’s something about the memories that are created when you take a trip with those you care about – even if it’s only for a few hours.

This month we’ve decided to venture outside of Cabarrus County because, it being Summer, you might be looking for things to do that are only a short drive away.

Did you know there are several key Revolutionary War battlegrounds within 90 minutes of Cabarrus County? This being the month we celebrate our nation’s independence, we’ve picked out three you could easily visit in a day! Also, this month, the Highland Games are taking place a Grandfather Mountain. We’ll delve into the rich Scottish history of the area and explore this yearly tradition. Finally, just up the road, in Spencer, NC is the NC Transportation Museum! Join us as we take a trip back in time to when the railroads were the key to the growth of our young country.

Regardless of your interests, North and South Carolina are beautiful states to explore and, just like those college road trips, the journey is well worth the drive!

Speaking of Summer fun, make sure you check out our online Summer Fun guide at this month, sponsored by the Heavy Hitters of Soul Music Festival! There you can find lots of free and low-cost things to do inside Cabarrus County! Also, don’t forget to tune in to our “Up Front with Cabarrus Magazine” podcast each week on iTunes or click on the “podcast” tab at to check out any episodes you may have missed!

Oh yeah, and Happy Birthday, America!
