Tips from locals
One of the finest museums in the Southeast- extensive collection, thousands of works of art, in a beautiful museum.
Well-curated art museum, featuring one of the finest and most diverse collections in the Southeastern US. If you go on a Sunday afternoon, they have a fantastic brunch.
The museum is free and generally has some interesting exhibits rotating through. I'm a fan of many of the paintings in their permanent collection.
The museum exhibits are always changing. Wonderful to check out whenever you have the time or if you're looking for something to do on a rainy day. The museum also has a cafe restaurant attached that serves lunch.

“The newest mall around town. Stores are located in a village like set up, with a sprawling parking lot in between. Mildly walkable, and a decent movie theater. Lots of stores, and a few fun places to eat (ShakeShack, Flip Burger, California Pizza Kitchen, Zoes).”
