The friendly community of Dallas, North Carolina, is home to fewer than 5,000, and a preferred location for savvy travelers on route to the High Country. Located in Gaston County, about half an hour's drive from Metro Charlotte, Dallas is blessed with an economy that suits residents and visitors interested in agricultural pursuits of all kinds, especially during summer and fall. Located just a few miles apart, two spots in Dallas make for a couple of family fun experiences during the best of seasons!

Starting at Lineberger's Farm, there's plenty of room to explore, run and play right near the farm stand. Then, an easy scamper up the hill takes the family through the fields and round the chicken coop! Or grab a ride on the friendly farmer's tractor and be regaled with tales of the farm's history, their farming methods, how wildlife figures in, and fun facts to amaze the kiddos. It's a learning experience wrapped up in healthy exercise and immersion in nature. Rest assured, there's no end to the photo ops at Lineberger's.

Lineberger's is a great place to pick out a pumpkin during the fall season to grace the front porch at home. And enjoy their farm-fresh apples out of hand or in a pie!
Visit for hours of operation and which crops are available during the season.

In Dallas, NC, the fun's not done yet! Next stop Dallas Lavender Lane Farm, 937 Old Willis School Road. Every day at Lavender Lane is fragrant, lovely, and sweet.

Have you experienced Lavender infused lemonade? Here's your chance - and it is delicious! Fancy a bouquet of fragrant Lavender? That's their primary product.

You'll be surprised at the many creative applications of Lavender available on the farm. From simple sprigs to room air fresheners, oils, candles, the list goes on. Lavender's calming properties are beneficial to man and beast.

Speaking of beasts, Lavender Lane's resident farm animals love attention from visitors. They're so friendly and persistent!

Before you go, visit for seasonal hours of operation and special events information. Then, check their website to find the activities that suit your family best.

Guaranteed, a day in Dallas will be a joy for the family. And, between the activities, the farm animals, and the soothing scent of Lavender, the kiddos will nap all the way home!
