It’s spring and the outdoors beckons and Badinites need look no farther than their own back yard. All around us, folded into the Uwharries, bordered by the Yadkin/Pee Dee River, is a quiet oasis for hikers, fishermen, boaters, canoeists and kayakers.
For the ultimate adventure, take a ‘night of the full moon’ kayak trip through dreamlike stretches of the Falls Reservoir. Laze by your own campfire on the slopes of Morrow Mountain. Ramp up the pace and water ski on Lake Tillery or Badin Lake, bicycle along a Scenic Byway or hike a trail through the serene forests of Morrow Mountain.
Badin Lake, with its swimming areas, boat landings, picnic areas, and abundance of wildlife, is an ideal place for the outdoor enthusiastic. Bait a line and compete for that big one with ospreys, great blue herons and bald eagles.
Looking for a little more civilized pursuit? Try a round of golf on the Badin course and finish with a quiet drink on a terrace overlooking the rolling hills that encompass the town.
