Asheboro [1] is a town in North Carolina. It is known primarily as the home of the North Carolina Zoo, and contains few other attractions.

Get in[edit]

Only with a car. Asheboro is directly connected by highway with Greensboro (Future Interstate 74), Raleigh (Hwy. 64), and Charlotte (Hwy. 49).

Get around[edit]

Car, although biking is possible in some areas.

See[edit][add listing]

  • North Carolina Zoo [2]
  • The Richard Petty Museum [3]
  • Downtown Asheboro: A nice collection of antique stores, thrift shops, bakeries, specialty shops, and cafes, as well as a nice park. Of note are the Art Deco town hall on Church Street and the Neoclassical courthouse on Worth Street. Suitable for an hour or two of strolling and enjoying small-town life.

Something Different: Variety of cuisines, middle eastern, Italian, on Zoo Parkway just south of Dixie Drive.

The Dixie III: An excellent Southern food restaurant, good value, and local favorite. Located on Dixie Drive, half a mile east of the intersection with Zoo Parkway.

Dixie Express: Owned by the same family as the Dixie III, a good local fast food option. Excellent milkshakes, hot dogs, and sandwiches. Try a hot dog "all the way": mustard, chili, slaw, and onions. Located among the other fast food restaurants on Dixie Drive.

Burrito Brothers: Authentic Mexican food, located on N. Fayettville Street.

America's Roadhouse: Known for steaks, ribs, chicken, and seafood. They also have "exotic" foods on the menu like the Buffalo Burger, Ostrich Burger, Aligator Tail, and Frog Legs. Located on Hwy. 64 (Dixie Drive)
