Things to Do


Spotlight: Art & Orchids

Warm your winter with Art & Orchids at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden.

This annual exhibition featuring the extensive collection of orchids will be paired with the season’s Stickwork display, including sculptures and photographs from North Carolina artist Patrick Dougherty. Using minimal tools and a simple technique of bending, interweaving and fastening together sticks, Dougherty crafts works of art inseparable with nature and the landscape. His artistry evokes fantastical images of nests, cocoons, cones, castles and beehives.

The orchid event in 2020 will pick up on the theme of using natural materials to create. It begins Feb. 1 and runs through March 15.

Where to Eat

Spotlight: Old Stone Steakhouse

Mouth-watering meals alongside a glass of wine in a warm, inviting atmosphere. For more than ten years, the downtown staple Old Stone Steakhouse has charmed guests with delicious dishes, an extensive beer and wine list, a large outdoor patio and its cocktail and cigar bar, Jailhouse – aptly named for the former police confinement area it occupies.

For more than 100 years, the Belmont Police Department occupied a 2,800 foot space on Main Street. In 2007, Old Stone Steakhouse restored the historic space, offering upscale steak and seafood at casual prices within a welcoming, preserved environment. Make this winter season a little warmer with delectable dining at this downtown restaurant.
