We decided to check out Falls Lake/River a couple weekends ago, as we had yet to go there. It wasn't long after our arrival that I realized that I may have to consider this just Part 1 because the place is HUGE. So needless to say I wasn't able to get to come close to checking everything out. However, I will say what we were able to see was pretty neat. We first went in over off of Falls of Neuse near the "visitor center". We parked in an area that was near a wooden bridge/walkway. I love bridges for pictures, I really do - so anytime I see one I file it away in memory. We then headed over to the dam area- there were some ok spots. We continued to walk under a bridge where it became part of a path. There were some really pretty spots there that I am anxious to get back to and really explore and share with you all. I think there is a lot to offer at this location especially as you go forward on this path, so I definitely consider it a viable option for a location and I plan on visiting again really soon!
I did manage to take a couple pictures of the kids while we were briefly out there on the bridge! Stay tuned though as more will follow of Falls Lake/River as well as other locations in the area!
