How did sandhillsDig.com get started?

We are a husband and wife team – we grew up in Pinehurst and Southern Pines and after living in Raleigh for 5 years, decided it was time to move “home” to the place we loved – the Sandhills.

One night, we decided to go out on a special Valentine’s Day dinner date and thought “hmmm…what are our choices of restaurants?”  After searching online, we couldn’t find the list we were looking for (you know, the one that you can search by dinner or fine dining and not have to scroll through all the fast food options…).  Since we couldn’t find exactly what we were looking for, the idea of a “guide” was born.  From there, we thought well if we’re going to do restaurants, why not do other things too!

We are excited at all that sandhillsDig.com has become and are so thankful for the wonderful reception it has been given by our community.  We’d love to hear from you…so, tell us what you like, what’s going on, or just say hi as we work to make this site as useful as possible for residents and guests of the Sandhills.
