1. Brown Truck Brewery

Head over to Brown Truck Brewery, grab a locally crafted, cold beer and take a photo out on their patio.  This beautiful space features an open air venue with large sail shades for sun and a gorgeous brick wall mural that is a nod to the history of music.  Insider Tip: A great game to play with your friends is Name that Musician.  The beer alone is a reason to go, but the photo op is icing on the cake!

2. The Pit

The Pit is located near High Point’s Amtrak station and has become a rotating art gallery of street art (of sorts).  This one of a kind backdrop is sure to make a great photograph.  Insider Info: We hear that very soon exciting things are going to take place at The Pit so stay tuned – we will report as we learn more!

8. 83 Custom Coffee Truck

83 Custom Coffee Truck is the most adorable little truck turned coffee shop you’ve ever seen.  Park your car and walk on up to the truck to grab a cup of freshly brewed coffee and a delicious homemade pastry.  And not to worry, just because it’s a truck doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of space to hang out.  Enjoy their brand new outdoor patio (surrounded by the beautiful gardening skills of Grassy Knoll) or enjoy their indoor seating area filled with local artwork.  It’s the perfect spot for a power business chat or some personal chill time.
