What to do when you visit Mooresville for a day (or two, or three)
We all know how precious vacation time is. How you spend those special days away from home can leave you feeling energized and recharged, or completely relaxed, depending on your goal. Whether you spend the day or a long weekend when you visit Mooresville, there are plenty of great activities, attractions, and restaurants to keep you entertained as you choose your own speed.
Breakfast at Famous Toastery
Fuel up for a day of activity at this unique spot. With breakfast entrees ranging from Tiramasu Pancakes to Salted Caramel Crepes to Huevos Rancheros, you’ll find something special to start your day.
Get Wild at our Lazy 5 Animal Park Encounter
Who doesn’t want to get up close and personal with exotic and domestic animals? That’s exactly what you can do at the Lazy 5 Ranch. This drive thru safari park gives visitors the chance to feed and touch animals from nine different continents from the safety of their own cars. Or make your visit even more special with a horse drawn wagon ride through the park. It’s a great experience for the whole family!
Lunch and Shopping at Merino’s Home Furnishings
Once you’ve washed the animal slobber off of you, head over to the more than seven acre shopping complex that features home furnishings and accessories, as well as an antique center. Even if you aren’t in the market for furniture, the gorgeous building that was once Burlington Industries is a site to see. While you are there enjoy lunch at one of the 2 restaurants, Alino Pizzeria or Barcelona Burger and Beer Garden. These 2 casual eateries are a favorite with locals and visitors!
