In November, WBTV from Charlotte, NC came to visit Hendersonville NC. What they found was a great time. We have the WNC Pinball Museum, and Ecco, North Carolina’s only inland aquarium. We have Hand’s On Children’s Museum, the Mineral and Lapidary Museum and of course, Pisgah Forest Gem Mine.

While you are here you can stock up on sugar and candy at Kilwin’s Ice Cream, Sweet Frog Yogurt. Don’t forget to drop in at Mast General Store for vintage candy and great outdoor footwear. We also have over 20 restaurants that have wonderful lunch and dinner selections. This time of year is a great time to visit.

Parking is free on Main street. If you can’t find parking there, you can always park at the visitors center and drop in and say hi to the staff. You will find them very friendly and even more helpful.

As for the gem mine, we have year ’round fun. Our bucket material comes from all over the world and no 2 buckets are alike. I guarantee you will find beautiful gems in your bucket. Better yet, I guarantee that you will have a smile on your face.

Come on over and spend the day with us in Hendersonville. We promise to keep you busy with lots of activities that won’t shock your wallet. Like Jack says in the video, his favorite is “all the beautiful things” about this little downtown. We have your bucket ready here at the gem mine. See you soon!
