One of our favorite local hangouts is Sweet Pete's, the largest candy store in the southeastern United States. Located in the heart of downtown, Sweet Pete's is a kid's dream come true. The candy shop boasts 3 whimsical floors sprinkled with every sweet treat you can imagine! We suggest their sea salt caramels, decadent chocolates, and chocolate-covered Oreos.
Our kids love participating in the candy-making classes. We've learned how to make gummies, lollipops, and chocolate pizzas. There's nothing more fun than getting your hands a little sticky with sugary goodness while spending quality time together.
Be sure to bring your phone or camera- Sweet Pete's is totally Insta-worthy! The creative masterminds behind the shop's interior design swap out the fun, vibrant, decor with each season or major holiday. You never know what to expect when you enter the doors!
While you're there, stop by the first floor for a bite to eat or a tasty cocktail or enjoy a scoop of smooth, creamy ice cream on the second floor.
