Keeping it real since 1800

53. Marvel at new life at Renfrow's Hardware.

The old-timey Renfrow Hardware has been a part of the Main Street landscape for 107 years. Opened by gold mining engineer Jefferson "Captain" Renfrow, the store is now known for its extensive organic gardening supplies. In the winter time, owner David Blackley (a family friend of the Renfrows who took ownership in 1984) fires up the iron pot-bellied stove and roasts local peanuts for a soul-warming snack. In the springtime, Renfrow's is the place to be for an annual dose of cute: The store receives an influx of baby chicks for sale. Homesteaders and onlookers alike can stop in for a peep. 188 N. Trade St. 704-847-4088. www.renfrowhardware.com.

54. Ring in local food at the Matthews Community Farmers' Market.

Every Saturday, the market bell rings at 8 a.m. to signify the start of this hyperlocal "growers only" market. Chefs, local citizens and locavores flood the popular market to score produce grown within 50 miles of the square. Don't miss the incredible lineup of chefs who bring mad skills to market to demo the endless possibilities for farmers market groceries and your plate. www.matthewsfarmersmarket.com.

55. Pay homage to the gods of craft beer at the Carolina Beer Temple.
