Next, it's time for dinner, and what better way to extend your play than stopping in at Al's Bar & Grille featuring great eats and an arcade experience like no other! Al's is a ten-minute drive from either ice cream joint you choose, but use that time to catch your breath, because the fun doesn't end here!


Finish your night by dropping into a Davidson Athletic event, and check out the Wildcats in action! Davidson has a beautiful campus with many sights to see - don't miss this one of a kind experience at Lake Norman. During the offseason, you and your family could visit Jetton Park to watch the sunset or make your way to Robbins Park for their playground and fishing pond!

Day 1 has come to a close, get some rest, because you're going to need it! Back in action for Day 2 in the morning!

Day 2

Make your second day of fun a memorable one - but first, breakfast. Make a great choice and stop-in at Famous Toastery in Davidson. You can pick up something light or get a full breakfast with fried eggs, bacon, blueberry pancakes, and hash browns. Also, don’t forget to request the highly recommended corn beef hash. This popular breakfast spot is only a short walk from your next destination.

Take a minute to relax after you've indulged in a tasty breakfast because now it's time to escape! Walk less than a block down Main St. to Escape 109, Davidson's premier escape room. With multiple rooms to choose from, test your skills and see if you can escape in record time! The more people you have assisting in your escape, the merrier!

Now that you've escaped, head to Ramsey Creek Park and soak up the sun! Ramsey Creek has a beach-access area, playgrounds, trails, and even a fishing pond! It's a great spot to relax and compose yourself before heading back to the action. The swimming beach is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, so plan accordingly!
