Leiper’s Fork

Leiper’s Fork is known for its artistic community. Throughout the town you will come across many art gallery collections and antique stores. David Arms, one of the galleries is beautifully lit at night. It also have a fire-place right outside where they provide marshmallows to roast.

My favorite part about Leiper’s Fork is that during the summer they have a lawn theatre. They offer free, family friendly movies every friday night. Just pack your lawn chairs. Occasionally they also offer free concerts. They line the main street of Leiper’s Fork with food trucks and have fun for the whole family. Nothing beats gathering around outside for a family night enjoyed by all. Check out their events calendar to see when they are offering their Farmers Market & other activities.

Puckett’s Grocery Restaurant is one of my favorite stops. Its your meat and three kind of place with an unbeatable atmosphere. Its first come, first serve. They have the old style grocery store indoors, with a “bikers stop” outdoor setting. Puckett’s offers a great variety of live music and entertainment. Across the street you will find another restaurant, The Country Boy. It’s known for its home cookin’ so come hungry!

A charming, southern town wouldn’t be complete without their classy boutiques. From high-end finishes, boots, clothing, and famous artwork, Leiper’s Fork has it all.
