Whether you’re getting a head start on the holiday season, celebrating a birthday or engagement, marking a career milestone, or are just in need of a day to de-stress, here’s where to get away with the girls in Cabarrus County.
We love shopping local, and there’s no better place to browse the racks for exclusive finds than at independently owned boutiques. For designer deals, bargain hunters should set their sights on Concord Mills, North Carolina’s largest outlet and value retail shopping center. Shopping for your home instead? Go antiquing, gather around a table at AR Workshop to paint your own décor, or sign up for an artistic workshop or create-your-own classes at Sweetest Beginnings.
Cabarrus County may be known for speed, but it can be the perfect place to slow down. Unwind at Spa Botanica inside Embassy Suites with an à la carte treatment or custom pampering package. Relax your mind and body in this oasis of tranquility where you can enjoy services from massages to facials with top-of-the-line skin care. Then, enjoy a delicious meal! Whether it’s time for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, choose from over 75 locally-owned options.
Make matching BFF bracelets or string together a statement necklace all your own at The Bead Lady. The 3,100-square-foot boutique is glistening with handmade jewelry and thousands of loose beads for visitors to design with. Have flowers from a special occasion? Owner, Kathleen can transform your precious petals into wearable beads. A fixture in Cabarrus County’s small business community, she and her husband also operate the local market across the street.
Toast to a day well spent and sample Cabarrus County’s treats from the vine. Head to Historic Downtown Concord where Cabo Winery and Cougar Run Winery pair perfectly with specialty stores like Chocolatier Barrucand. Need a snack while you sip? Pack a picnic and dine with a view at Rocky River Vineyard, or just stroll through Downtown Concord and grab a table at a local eatery along Union Street.
Now that you’ve got a game plan, share this post with your best friends, set a date and find a place to stay!
