2015 Official Visitors Guide:

Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Aberdeen Area

I almost forgot about this! Last summer, I was contacted to be quoted for the upcoming guide book for Southern Pines & Pinehurst (printed by the Convention & Visitors Bureau). The 2015 Official Visitors Guide was printed last week and is available for local pick up in Pinehurst, Southern Pines, or Aberdeen. There are three different covers, and the guide includes "a complete list of all the golf courses and accommodations in the area as well as information on local restaurants and things to do off the links." You can view the 2015 guide online, or request a free copy online or by calling the Convention & Visitors Bureau at (800) 346-5632. 

I highly recommend visiting if you're ever in the area. Pinehurst is a quaint little village, with the beautiful Village Arboretum (where we had our wedding ceremony), plenty of shopping, restaurants, lodging, and of course, golf! We've stayed at the Magnolia Inn in Pinehurst and The Old Buggy Inn in Carthage, both of which were wonderful. My family also had a great stay at the Pine Gables of Aberdeen. Don't forget to stop at The Bakehouse in Aberdeen for some delicious bakery treats, and check out the horses at the track outside The Fair Barn (where we had our reception). If you love flowers and nature, you'll enjoy the Sandhills Horticultural Gardens and lovely grounds of the Weymouth Center.

Please feel free to share your experiences in the area with me! I'd love to know where to visit next time we're there.
