Well it was a nice trip. Great craft beer destination as there are supposed to be 130 Brewers in the area. We visited a few in town with tasting rooms. Most of the pubs and restaurants have many local brews on tap. Only spent a few days there but not sure I could last much more than that. Too enticing to try so many beers. Just about any variety you can imagine. Didn't have one I did not like.
For a retirement destination, well it's a great area but it's out there. We flew into Charlotte and drove 2 hours to get there. I am not sure if I could have found a direct flight from Boston that would get closer. I don't like the small commuter airlines as they seem to get cancelled if there is any hint of bad weather or the plane is undersold. Then my wife brought up the question I knew was lurking, " what about when the boys get married and we have grandchildren ".
Of course if it were an easier destination to get to, it wouldn't be the same feel I am sure.
I would like to go back with my sons sometime and do some further sampling and tour some breweries for sure.
