Picking a High Point Picnic

July 13, 2021

Happy National Picnic Month! And when we say “picnic,” we’re not talking about a few squished peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on an old blanket in the backyard. We’re talking full-scale, fancied-up, picnic EXPERIENCE! (Imagine if “glamping” met picnicking… Glam-picnicking?) To celebrate picnics in High Point this July, you have some really wonderful options for a perfectly delicious and picturesque picnic with your favorite people.  

Get creative this summer with birthdays, date nights, anniversaries, or friend date by incorporating a picnic or charcuterie box from one of High Point’s great small businesses!
