This weekend Melanie and drove up to Salisbury, NC to visit a book store because that is how we roll. Downtown Salisbury was a pleasant surprise. The old downtown area is still intact, lot of old buildings with character and inside those buildings there are local businesses. Imagine that. We will definitely go back when the weather gets cooler. We saw about three places you can sit outside and eat. Salisbury is only an hour from our driveway and it is just far enough away to allow you to break the grip of Charlotte. Sometimes you just have to get out of town, you know?
Just down the street from the downtown area is a business called Salisbury Motor Company. It was established in 1919 and is supposedly still owned by the same family. The exterior looks a lot like it must have when the building opened. It has a corner window display area for automobiles. It was a nice surprise on our short journey.
