Adventures + Dining = One Fantastic Weekend

Halifax County Restaurant Week is in full swing! We hope everyone is enjoying the great food and even better deals across Halifax County. If you have yet to dine out this week, you have until Sunday to try one of special menus at one of the eight participating restaurants. If you're still making plans for the weekend, we have a few suggestions and how you can tie Restaurant Week into those (you have to eat, right?).
