Weldon, NC

I recently visited the historic town of Weldon located in North Carolina. 



WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

You may have spotted Weldon on your way down 95; its the first town in the state after leaving Virginia. The town is known as the ROCK FISH CAPITAL OF THE WORLD and is home to the Roanoke River; their slogan is "Get Hooked On Weldon" and recently they installed an art installation that includes 30 rock fish statues located throughout the town, similar to the DC Panda statues


The centerpiece of this installation is "Rocky" the 4,000 lb striped bass statue, which attracts tons of visitors daily and is an homage to the annual fishing tournaments that take place in Weldon and neighboring towns.

My favorite place to eat is Carolina Kitchen (try the wings and peach cobbler!) the restaurant is located just outside of Weldon city limits in Roanoke Rapids. 

 Sonic and Cracker Barrel are also a nearby treat!
