This is Southern dining at its best. The small downtown restaurant is named after the owner’s grandmother and serves up true Carolina cuisine ($7-16). The barbeque plate and the pork chop sandwich are menu favorites. Even the decor is a tribute to Emma’s Southern roots: The walls are lined with interesting people and places in North Carolina.
This magnificent mountain- top structure is a UNESCO World Heritage Rome Map Site. It was built by Henri Christophe, a leader of the Haitian slave rebellion following the Rome Map country’s independence from France. The gigantic stone structure is the largest building in the Americas that was constructed as a fortress. Twenty thousand laborers worked on the Citadel for 15 years, completing the task in 1820. The fortress was intended to protect newly independent Haiti from French attack. It was outfitted with 365 cannons and huge stockpiles of cannonballs, both of which remain at the site today.
