  • NCMA Nature Park

    ...- Carly Delengowski
    One of my favorite things about living in Raleigh is the North Carolina Museum of Art, but especially their trails. Their nature walks are perfect for beautiful days when you want to get your heartbeat up but also explore different artwork. The Museum Park has been transformed over the 30 years since the Museum opened on Blue Ridge Road, growing from the original 50-acre site in 1983 to the current 164-acre campus of trails amid outdoor sculptures.
  • Cat Tales Cafe

    ...- Carly Delengowski
    Cat Tales Cafe is now open in Downtown Chapel Hill! Cat Tales is an aMEOWzing place for guests who want to spend time in the company of adoptable cats. I didn't know what to expect (as it was my first visit) but was blown away by the cuteness. The Cafe is a two-story building with tons of places to lounge about and relax with a furry friend. All the cats at the cafe are friendly and looking for their forever home! Basically a large foster home for these cats!
  • Honeysuckle Tea House: A Tranquil Escape

    ...- Carly Delengowski
    When you’re in need of a quick escape or the perfect day trip, Honeysuckle Tea House is tucked away in the outskirts of Chapel Hill for some peace and relaxation. The Tea House sits on sixteen acres of serene farmland and is filled with tons of cute spots to cozy into, hammocks swaying in the breeze, and butterflies passing through blooming sunflowers. The Honeysuckle’s atmosphere is unmatched by anything in the Triangle. Don’t believe me?

  • TreeRunner Adventure Park

    Ryan and I wanted to go on a date that was a little out of the ordinary. The typical dinner date or movie night just wasn’t cutting it!

With varying difficulty levels, courses and elements, TreeRunner Raleigh provide an experience that coworkers, families, and friends can enjoy together.

    NC Art MuseumThe NCMA is a great date spot for you and your beau. The art museum is perfect, whether or not you’re an art lover! On sunny days, the grounds are wonderful to explore. The NCMA has an extensive park with acres of beautiful sculptures. Walk around the park’s path and you’ll find two large heads, a rocket-ship with a slide, and even a little hobbit hole. Inside, you’ll find art displayed every inch of the building. Exhibits range from floral favorites to classic European paintings.

  • Christmas at Oak View Farm

    ...- Carly Delengowski
    The beautiful Oak View Farm is a wonderful historic location in Raleigh, North Carolina. While it's great to visit all times of the year, this season they are decked out in Christmas decoration. We got to tour the Plank Kitchen and Main House and see decorations interpreting five different time periods in Oak View’s history. We traveled through Christmas in the Antebellum Era, Civil War Era, Victorian Era, Great Depression, and World War II!
  • The Give Gala: The Worst Fundraiser Ever

    ...- Carly Delengowski
    On November 16th, I attended the Give Gala at Marbles Museum in Downtown Raleigh. The Give Gala is dubbed"The Worst Fundraiser Ever,"because, well, they don’t raise any funds. This unique no-money charity event celebrates non-monetary ways of giving back. Instead of cash, the Give Gala accepts experiences (tickets to an event, some service, or a special gift/talent). The Give Gala is organized by Headbands of Hope and The Monday Life to benefit childhood cancer.

    ...- Carly Delengowski
    From now until January 20th, 2019, you can go check out The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Art exhibit at North Carolina's Museum of Art.

I'm only giving you a sneak peek of the exhibit through these photos but you will be sure to find more enormous flowers, luscious color, and desert landscapes there.
  • Morgan St. Food Hall

    ...- Carly Delengowski
    I took a trip to Morgan Street Food Hall and left STUFFED! I did not know what to expect and was happily surprised when I stepped foot into the large multi-vendor building. During lunch, the hall is filled with Raleigh employees on their breaks. The best part - there is something for everyone. The hall is located at 411 West Morgan St. in the Warehouse District and hosts 20 local restaurants. As well as two bars, a flower shop, and some food-focused retail businesses.
