How To Asheville: Family Edition

Freecellwizard and I will be heading to Asheville, NC for a week with two kids, ages 9 and 11. Although we've visited the area several times, we've never had the kids with us and are wondering if there are kid-specific fun things to see/do up there that would appeal to a pair of Pokemon/Minecraft/Steven Universe/Undertale-loving children who must be cajoled away from their various digital devices.

Suggestions for things to do while visiting Raleigh, NC?

I moved to Raleigh, NC a while ago. I like it here a lot. It's great. I'm really glad I moved here. Now I have a friend coming out to visit. I'd like to show her around. This is kind of embarrassing, but I don't know where to take her. I've spent the entire time I've been here either working or riding. She isn't super into horses. [more inside]

What building was that I flew over?

How could you find a building when all you know about it is what it looks like from above and roughly where it is (with a large margin of error, giving a triangle with an area of about 1,900 square miles)? Is there any tool/database/search that might help with this, or would finding it be a matter of putting the question to people who live in the area (or, for the less social, strictly a brute-force problem)?

appalachian trail yellowjacket nest + lost and found

Yellowjackets attacked us on a not-that-remote part of the Appalachian Trail yesterday at 5 PM, and had attacked others earlier. Should I tell someone? Also, if someone picked up my dropped glasses and hat, would they return them to some centralized lost and found? This is Nantahala Forest in NC, ~.5 mile N. of Tellico Gap. [more inside]

NE to Outer Banks driving questions

Going to Nag's Head for a little family R&R. I haven't driven down there in 8 years and looking for some advice. Leaving from SE Mass area at 10PM on Friday and hope to get in around noon on Saturday. Taking 95 south through CT, 1st decision: GW or Tappan Zee? We will be hitting them around 1AM. After that the question is: I95 all the way around DC, or Rt 13 South through DE & MD? Has anyone made the trip lately or know of any major construction projects going on that would cause big delays? Normally I go the Rt13 but is there a problem with one of the bridges in DE? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Kid-Friendly Breakfast Spots & Activities in Charlotte, North Carolina

I am meeting up with some friends in Charlotte who have a long layover there Saturday morning. I live just a couple of hours away but have not spent much time there. Can you recommend a good breakfast spot and/or places we could hang out for a few hours that would occupy the kids (ages 7-9) and also give us adults some time to chat?
