You could go grocery shopping in Franklin or visit the Hospital in Petersburg, that would be fun.

I've told you how many times, if you go buy your license, I'll buy mine. Hell, we'll both learn together. That was the one thing I tried to learn from my grandpa, and never did before he died

I thought fishing was the reason you bought property over there.

Everyone around here seems like they have a camp or property over there or in Smoke Hole just for fishing/drinking trips.

Park around back where your favorite furniture store is and walk

Rainy day options: Caverns, all both of them. I've always wanted to do the extended private tours.
Mountain State Brewing for good beer. I keep kegs of Amber Ale at home.

You most definitely need a fishing license. Smoke Hole is a favorite of mine that is road accessible. Head to Seneca creek with a fly rod for back country native brookies.
Do you have a canoe? Smoke Hole and the Trough are a lot of fun. 'Specially with a fishing rod in hand.
