Where to Stay

The JH Adams Inn is a historic boutique hotel that’s located in the center of uptown High Point.  Over 100 years old, they pride themselves in providing timeless interiors and exquisite service.  This historic mansion offers a variety of accommodations and several suite options.

Pandora’s Manor is an upscale bed and breakfast and boutique hotel. Designers have come in to preserve the timeless charm of this 100+ year old Southern home. Each room is unique and filled with gorgeous details to ensure you have a relaxing and beautiful retreat.

If these options are sold out and you’re looking for a special experience in our neighbor city, we recommend:

The Proximity is an eco-green hotel located in Greensboro, just a 25 minute drive from High Point.  They feature numerous modern work or social spaces as well as a gorgeous garden.  Their rooms offer a serene getaway and there is a 24-hour fitness center on site.  Not to mention, they’re also home to Print Works Bistro which is a local favorite for brunch.

Where to Eat

If you are looking for an Italian fix, LuLu & Blu is the place to go.  Some of our favorites include the calamari, meatballs antipasti, chicken marsala and short rib pappardelle!

Blue Rock Pizza offers all your favorite pizza combinations in a rock & roll atmosphere.  We love that you can build your own handmade pizza with unique ingredients.

While Penny Path Cafe & Crepe Shop doesn’t have a website, it is well worth your time!  This family owned crêperie serves one of a kind crepe creations.  A favorite savory crepe is the Kitchen Sink and it has everything in it but the kitchen sink and is to die for!

Blue Zucchini & Company is the perfect spot for a home cooked meal in a space that emulates a cozy kitchen.  They offer mouth watering “sammiches” as they call them as well as 6 different salads.  They have endless comfort food and a personal favorite is their classic mac & cheese!

Where to Grab a Drink

Brown Truck Brewery is a 2 year old, locally owned craft brewery that has without a doubt quickly become one of High Point’s prized possessions.  They feature a beautiful outdoor atmosphere that is perfect to sit with a cold one on a nice day.  Inside, they serve a local variety of beers on tap – you can find online what they have on tap at the moment!  Don’t worry, they also have a great collection of wine.

The Wifi Wine Bar is as good as it sounds.  This family owned “tech bar” pairs great wifi and even greater wines to give you a space where you can relax and catch up on emails.  They have live music as well as $5 prosecco and mimosas on Sundays-yes please!

Southern Roots is located adjacent to High Point in the quaint Jamestown, NC.  They have a farmhouse feel and intimate ambiance.  You can grab a seat at their bar and try their apple spiced mule or a glass of wine.

Where to Shop

Wright Choices is situated in a charming pink house in uptown High Point and they are a hot spot for women’s clothing, jewelry, and even gifts and stationary.

The Market on W. Lexington is a special find carrying local home and garden decor. They have one of a kind antique and refurbished pieces that you don’t want to miss out on. Insider Tip:  As if it could get any better, they also have an in house bakery called Dot & Pearl’s that serves the best homemade cakes around town!

After exploring High Point shops head over to The Friendly Center in Greensboro is just 30 minutes from High Point and has a wide array of all your favorite stores.  From Anthropologie to Apple to Lululemon, they have it all right there!  There’s also several options for dining and we love Bravo, the Italian eatery with outdoor seating.

Where to Go Pamper Yourself

The Blo Dry Club is conveniently located in the same pink house on N. Main St. as Wright Choices!  Head downstairs in this refurbished historic home and you’ll find yourself instantly relaxed in this blo dry bar.  Go treat yourself to a blo out and be in and out in 30-45 minutes looking gorgeous and feeling rejuvenated.  Also, the blo outs typically last 3 days!

About Face Day Spa is a full service spa also located on N. Main St.  Whether you are in need of a makeover or a massage, they can service you.  They also sell many beauty products such as Bare Minerals if you need to pick something up quick and are one of the few free-standing independent retailers that carry Chanel!
