There’s just something special about small towns. There is so much life and character in them that makes them unique and makes you wonder about their stories – their history – as you wander their streets.
Last weekend, my family and I came together to celebrate two of my Aunt’s birthdays and decided to explore a little town called Mebane after our lunch at Cracker Barrel. Mebane is a familiar town to us, just a stone’s throw away from Burlington – where my late grandmother lived for many years and where my mom and her siblings spent a lot of their childhood. We’ve been through the area so many times, but never actually took the time to get out and walk around through their downtown area. One of my uncle’s even paid for stones to be laid in their veteran’s park for my four uncles who served in the military, but we still had just not been until last week.
The downtown area is so adorable and has some beautiful homes lining the streets as you drive in. My favorite part was Filament Coffee, the cutest little coffee shop that looked like it was ripped straight from your blogger’s dream Instagram feed. I went with my standard Vanilla Latte and it was delicious! They make all of their syrups themselves and even have a Butterbeer-flavored syrup for you Harry Potter lovers.
Such a sweet town!
