Honestly worth going just to walk around regardless of whether you're looking to buy anything or not. Would give 5 stars if there were a few more stores that carried North Carolina merchandise.
  • The Streets at Southpoint has everything you can imagine. Loved going here to just walk around and window shop at times. Love the indoor/outdoor aspect.
