Davidson Village Network Resources— Useful, unusual, quirky and fun

You probably know lots of online searches to do, like “AirBnB” for places to stay when you travel, and “Senior Resources” for stuff that’s particularly aimed at our age group.

This Davidson Village Network(DVN) Community Resource page tips you off to unusual, quirky, and fun businesses, community activities, events, discounts, and websites.

We will add new sections periodically, so email us your ideas for the upcoming categories—scroll down for that list.
