The Kid's Main Street Safari through downtown Rutherfordton is the first of its kind. Usually found off the beaten path, even Kids in Parks couldn't ignore how fun it is to explore a historic downtown. This trail is jam-packed with activities for kids of all ages. There are games, tree climbing, gold hunting and a search that leads you through a Civil War cemetery, just to name a few of the highlights.
