Burnsville: Cue the Fireworks: Get ready for the show with these patriotic picks
Share this

With a close-knit community of 1,600, Main Street wrapping around a quaint central square, and a collection of boutiques, galleries, and restaurants (including a classic 1950s diner), Burnsville is the quintessential American town. Home to the top-notch Parkway Playhouse theater and the popular Quilt Trail heritage tour, there are plenty of reasons to visit. While you’re there, shop around. Needle Me This, located east of the square, sells fabric, threads, and other sewing supplies. At the opposite side of town, DK Puttyroot tearoom offers select teas and handmade papers, David’s Limited carries fine clothing, and I Thought About You specializes in children’s attire. And that’s just to start. Here’s a sampling of red, white, and blue finds to fit the season.
