I went to a wedding back at that place when I was in college at Barton, the real school in Eastern NC! :)

Back then, about 10 years ago, it looked like the place was heading for doom, but I'm glad to see that it's up and running. It's sad to say, but that's probably the most exciting place to visit in the area! Even, The City on The Rise, Rocky Mount, can't compete with this!

Great TR and pics.

^Come on now, just because ECU has the party school rep..... :)

There are a few things for tourists to do in this region, such as Kitty Hawk with the Wright Brothers Memorial and the Outer Banks. The problem however is that most of the tourism for Eastern North Carolina is condensed to the coast, and not a whole lot of it spreads to the rest of the coastal plains region (Theoretically, that is pretty much anywhere east of I-95). There are some neat things to see in other places, like the Town of Bath were the pirate Blackbeard lived, and in New Bern you can see the building where Pepsi was created, but these don't exactly draw a lot of people.

Deadwood has a pretty good following, but I believe most of their visitors are local. I am a bit surprised that they don't advirtise over here in Greenville, as I am sure they could draw some people looking for a nice day out with the family. Perhaps this thread will help attract some extra visitors to get the Dinosaur Canyon credit! :)

There are actually 17 of these models installed, and obviously a few missed, at RCDB.
