Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!

Okay Beasts! This is my first post, but I have been lurking and making little comments here and there. I am going to NC for the Tour of Mythicality and was wondering what stops I should make. I want to see all the places that touched RandL's lives. I want to be on the same ground they were. I don't know when I'll make it back to North Carolina, so I want to make this count. Anyone know addresses or directions to places or have any suggestions on places I should go to. I feel like there are so many and my brain can't zero in on any specifics yet.

Thank you everyone who contributed to this! I was hoping to do a trip to NC and visit all of the “Rhett and Link” places. It was going to take me a lot of time to do the research, but now I don’t have to. Thanks!

*Updated list. Excluded places that no longer exist. Added some places mentioned in passing w/ sources for context. Anyone can add to this or suggest corrections/updates. :)

My friend, Lucy, and I visited a few places yesterday, (which was fun!) and we spent some time in Raleigh in the morning hours, but for most of the day, we were able to see Buies Creek Elem School, Harnett Central High School, (you end up driving through Campbell University campus since it's right there in Lillington), both the Fuquay-Varina and Lillington studios, the ERB alley, Rhett's old house on street view (drove by), the Lillington sign and train tracks, drove on 421 and passed by what used to be the Twin Plaza and ate at a restaurant in Dunn. What worked out for us was starting at the furthest point away from us and working our way down, while prioritizing the important places over the extras, so that might help you or others, too. It's also surprising how close everything is in the Lillington/Buies Creek area!

Haha! Well, I can't go everywhere next week, but I hope to see as much as I can! I was actually helping a friend with her trip and updated the list in the process. I hope it helps you, too, Razle.

Comment by Gumbo123 on June 9, 2017 at 1:35pm

Not sure this could work in with your plans unless you're driving to NC and not flying in, and then it depends on where your route takes you, but here is the site of THE DAM - - - very first video that R&L ever uploaded on YouTube. It's about a 4 1/2 hour drive (in light traffic) from Buies Creek, but if you happen to be starting out in Memphis then it's just a few miles detour along the way.
