I love all the local stores and believe strongly in supporting local business. There are various antique shops, homemade soap shops, local coffee shops and restaurants.

We have your average restaurants: McDonald's, Bojangles, Wendy's, Zaxby's, etc. We also have a few independent diners and family-owned restaurants. The quality of food varies place to place and some towns have more options than others. We don't have a lot to offer for nightlife but there are a few bars around that I assume stay open late.
Usually the worst weather we get is thunderstorms, maybe severe thunderstorms. We sometimes get tornadoes in the summer but snow is scarce. We generally get snow every few years. Most winters are just cold. Summers are very hot, but we get a lot of rain in the summer too, which will either cool everything down or make it too humid to go outside for long.
