A Side Trip to Cameron
The entire little town of Cameron, 10 miles north of Southern Pines (off U.S. 1/15/501), has been designated a historic district, with some 19 vintage sites and buildings. More than 60 antiques dealers have shops here, and an annual antiques street fair is held the first Saturday in May and again in October. Most shops are open Wednesday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm. After a morning of sightseeing and shopping, have lunch at the Dewberry Deli, 485 Carthage St. (tel. 910/245-3697), open Tuesday to Saturday 11am to 4:30pm. Located in an old hardware store, this eatery is ideal for a salad or a sandwich.
