To Do (some choices subject to weather):
*make use of Catawba Science Center membership by visiting Catawba Science Center, Schiele Museum, and anything else nearby that's in this membership network (good indoor alternatives if weather is nasty). Possibilities include Western North Carolina Nature Center (Asheville), SciWorks (Winston-Salem), Roper Mountain Science Center (Greenville, SC), Spartanburg Science Center (Spartanburg, SC) (wound up going to our old standby places, the Schiele and the Catawba Science Center. A good time, &c)
*visit the Old Salem village in Winston-Salem (check! a wonderful day out if you want a mini-Williamsburg kind of experience)
*Kings Mountain/Cowpens Revolutionary War battlefields (check! Also great. B&R did the "junior ranger" scavenger hunt program and won badges)
*Crowders Mountain State Park
*South Mountain State Park
