They have the actual "fountain of youth" here, which is pretty awesome. You can quite literally take a swim in the waters that Deleon thought promised eternal youth.

Easily the best Voodoo shop I've ever been to. Awesome staff (a REAL VAMPIRE was working the apothecary), really great handmade stuff. Go visit and ask for Balfazaar.

After 352 geese decided to take a migration break in this pit, they all died. The mining company tried to tell everyone it wasn't their fault, but then they discovered that if anyone actually drank from this water their digestive systems would corrode right out...

Spent a few days in Linville Falls awhile back while looking for the source of the Brown Mountain lights. Of all the lookouts I went to, Wiseman's View was the absolute best. It's an easy drive, and there seem to be small groups of people up there regularly well after dark, so you don't have to be too worried about being in the middle of nowhere at night.

The best part? We actually saw the weird lights!
