Carolina Tiger Rescue is a wildcat sanctuary in Pittsboro, North Carolina. This 67-acre non-profit animal sanctuary provides home to rescued big cats such as tigers, lions, leopards, caracals, cougars, servals, bobcats as well as other wild animals. Their main mission is to save and protect wild cats in captivity, with the hope that one day all wild animals will live in the wild and not be abused by humans. They are also educating people about the threats these animals face in the wild, from the exotic pet trade, and by the entertainment industry. Carolina Tiger Rescue is against private ownership of wild animals and their use for entertainment purposes. They also oppose breeding wild animals against the species survival and population management plans. Carolina Tiger Rescue provides lifelong sanctuary to the rescued animals and conducts research to advance our understanding of wild animals.

Fearrington Village is located on a former dairy farm in Pittsboro, North Carolina, just south of the charming college town of Chapel Hill. Fearrington Village is a copy of a traditional English village and was established in 1974 by R.B. Fitch and his late wife Jenny after they bought the two-centuries old dairy farm from Jesse Fearrington. From the rolling pastures and wooded acres, the Fitches created an unique community where residents can enjoy living, dining, shopping and relaxing. Today the community has grown to more than 1800 residents. The Fearrington House is an award-winning country inn and restaurant. The village also has a cafe and bar, chocolate and wine shop, a bookstore, a home décor shop, a garden art shop and more. Belted Galloway cows, added to the farm in 1983, are the village's iconic mascot.

S and T Soda Shoppe is a blast from the past and the Pittsboro icon. George Pilkington opened a pharmacy and soda shop in Pittsboro, North Carolina, in 1916, at the current site, where it worked until 1944. After his death, the shop changed many hands and many businesses and eventually became dilapidated. Gene Oldham bought the building in 1996 and meticulously refurbished and recreated the original furniture and woodwork. A tin ceiling was added, tile floor laid and a marble counter was made from three older counters. The soda shoppe opened in October, 1997. Gene named the shop S&T's after his two sons, Steve and TJ. The soda shop became again the heart of the community where locals celebrated holidays, rehearsal dinners and family reunions. It is elegant and timeless, but also homey and cozy. It offers a large lunch menu, more than 32 flavors of ice cream including sherbet, yogurt, and low-fat. Try also their funnel cake and apple turnovers. There is an elegant upstairs dining area for private events.
