Hendersonville NC Pictures - Day Trip

This past weekend we wanted to go somewhere but still stay a bit "close" to home.

We decided on Hendersonville, NC, it is such a quaint, friendly, and lively town and one of our favorite places to visit.

It has unfortunately been a few months since we have been there, time sure does fly.
It was a beautiful sunny day, and it was just so nice to be away from it all.

We noticed all these wonderful fun apple statues around the town in addition to the bears.

Many of the bears were located in front of or near the businesses they reflected.

How fun and they were a great conversation piece when we saw all of them.
(I did not take pictures of all the statues.)

There are many apple orchards around this area (which I can't wait to go apple picking in a few weeks) which as you can see really influences the area.

(This apple was my favorite, it was all sparkly.

Nate wanted to go into the Mineral & Lapidary Museum (no admission fee but donations accepted), which is where we saw a head of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Spencer was amazed at just how big the teeth where.

We then wandered into a few of the many antique stores before we decided that it was time for some lunch.

We found a pizza place outside of downtown and sat down to a slice.

A wonderful family outing and would highly recommend a visit if you are ever in the western part of North Carolina.

Beautiful iron gate in front of a house on main street.

Beautiful lights outside a door on one of the side streets.

Excellent local art work displayed on the street in a flower garden.
