Your kids might already enjoy fishing, and if they don’t yet they will after an experience with Big Ol Fish Guiding Service! Rain, shine, warm, or cold Big Ol Fish is ready to take you on a fishing expedition you and your family won’t forget! They lead tours that go after striped and smallmouth bass. Some of the striped bass they catch require two arms to hold! Watch your child’s excitement grow when they catch a fish on their line and finally pull it out of the water! This is one of the best bonding experiences you’ll have during your vacation in Murphy, NC.

2. Murphy River Walk

3. Ye Olde Goat Farm

Ye Olde Goat Farm is just what it sounds like, a goat farm. This goat farm is unique though, it isn’t commercial or even listed as a typical tourist attraction. Instead, it is owned by a married couple that are dedicated to looking after each goat they own. The goats here are very friendly, maybe a little mischievous, and are always looking for something to snack on. You and your kids are welcome to visit these playful, clever critters the couple who owns the farm requests that you call ahead of time though!
